LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy Talks Retirement on 'Colbert Report'
Buzz about LCD Soundsystem has been plentiful lately, due to frontman James Murphy's announcement that an April 2 show at New York's Madison Square Garden would be the band's last. In between feuds with scalpers and adding four dates at Terminal 5 prior to the MSG concert, Murphy showed up on Comedy Central's "The Colbert Report" to discuss the recent news.
Host Stephen Colbert, along with many industry folks, expressed disbelief in the singer's choice to retire while "moderately" successful. Murphy's response: "It seemed like the right thing to do. I'm 41, and at a certain point I think it gets embarrassing."

In the interview, Murphy also briefly discusses his potential plans following the Madison Square Garden show -- including selling coffee?
Afterward, Murphy and co. performed what is said to be their final performance on television -- the tune "I Can Change," from the band's 2010 disc "This is Happening."
