This new film about Oasis’s glory years is rousing, heart-rending and really f**king funny
North American Scum
But… if this is coasting, dammit, LCD Soundsystem do it mighty sweet. Part-Cabaret Voltaire death disco hiss, part-Mark E Smith-being-tazered-in-the-goolies, ‘North American Scum’ builds into a ranting, raving rallying cry to the uncivilised Yank shown up by all us suave European aesthetes. Murphy still has a killer way with a tossed-off quip and occasionally Nancy Whang nonchalantly ambles over to the microphone and shouts the title like a cheerleader. It’s so good NME even loves it after losing the CD and having to review it by watching a fat guy called Charles dancing to it on YouTube.
