Free Energy Played Letterman Last Night
Free Energy's James Murphy-produced Stuck on Nothing, which finally got a digital release last week, will almost certainly make it to some tall spot on our year end list; that said, caterwauling singer Paul Sprangers live, sans Murphy, is still the best argument for the studio genius of the LCD frontman going. This band's songs just doesn't sound right without him. But we are happy to see this band make their network television debut on the Late Show with David Letterman--even if Letterman can be seen at the end as the credits roll, shedding the Stuck on Nothing LP he was holding up the camera just moments ago like it was burning his hand. Really, it's a badge of honor if Letterman sort of hates you.
