A Broken Hallelujah: The Incomparable Musical Journey of John Cale

Filter is running a four part series about John Cale, talking with the man himself, and a handful fellow musicians who worked with the Welsh maestro. James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem):

I was arguing with the record company for “All My Friends” as the single. So they suggested doing some remixes, and I said, “Why don’t we just get covers?” I instantly suggested John Cale and Franz Ferdinand and, lo and behold, they both agreed. When [Cale and I] met in Los Angeles, I was pretty starstruck. He kept making suggestions and I just said “yes” to everything. It didn’t sink in until I got the file from John and heard my song coming out of this voice that was so familiar!
