Hah...  this is the LAST thing I thought they sounded like.  I would have never guessed that you guys would like anything like this, what with all the Bisco trash talking.  These guys are good, I like it.  The singing is kinda meh sometimes, but the music is great.  I wish they'd have jammed the ending to All My Friends because they had the energy really up there.  Im about halfway through Yeah right now.  I really like the drummer.  Haha this jam is sick, after the vocals end in Yeah.  I think these guys are really gonna help propel the trancefusion genre into more legit territory.

::pukes:: LCD IS NOT "TRANCEFUSION" WHATEVER THE FUCK THAT MEANS.  THEY ARE DANCE PUNK DRAWING FROM THE TRADITION OF GANG OF FOUR, PIL, THE FALL, AND OTHER LEGITIMATELY TALENTED GROUPS.

Dance-punk?  :banana:   :banana:
Ok.  I would not have really thought that, but i don't know the sub-cultures of techno, i just thought it was Electronic Music.  I heard them (him) on NPR not too long ago and really enjoyed hearing how he put the album together, then found musicians to take it on the road.  I like them a lot.  You suggest i listen to the aforementioned groups then?  Peace
The events in our lives happen in a sequence in time, but in their significance to ourselves they find their own order; the continuous thread of revelation.

No Gang of Four, no LCD, Rapture, !!! and a crap load of other bands, at the very least check them out.

Not a huge PIL fan, although their first couple albums are great and it's cool to hear what Johnny did after the Sex Pistols.  Personally, I don't like The Fall but their influence on LCD is apparent.

whoah dude....  chill out.  Trancefusion is exactly what it sounds like:  trance music done in the context of a rock band, just like traditional (jazz) fusion is jazz music done in a rock context. 

its just a description of what the band does...  you could just as easily call it dance music, however I feel that that label indicates an artist that only sings and has studio musicians perform on their albums without having their own real band.

Whateves, you just have no clue as to what you are talking about, "trance" is shite like Oakenfold and John Dickweed and it should not be used to describe bands like LCD.  Calling them "trancefusion" is like calling the Beastie Boys "rap metal" or some other travesty.

Too late, many already know, although I wouldn't worry about them taking to it like say posford or other actual trance artists, which leads me to this...
Trancefusion is exactly what it sounds like:  trance music done in the context of a rock band, just like traditional (jazz) fusion is jazz music done in a rock context.

Definelty not trancefusion. This term denotes a fusion style with trance, a genre that LCD draws no influence from. Popular trance artists include simon posford and all his groups, ott, and infected mushroom. There are definelty general electronic influences but as fas as spcefics within this larger heading the genres are more dance or even tech-house to a very small degree. They are more influenced by punk and indie music imo. I would def refer to them as dance punk.

One of their primary influences is the group (now defunct) six finger satelite. James murphy got his start producing them and they used to feature a guitarist who now goes by juan maclean.

Then I shall amend my post:

Why have they not unformed?

Maude: Dieter has been on the fringes of--well, of everything in L.A., for about twenty years. Look at my LP's. Under 'Autobahn.' That was his group--they released one album in the mid-seventies. Their music is a sort of--*ugh*--techno-pop.
