Photo by G. Signature by James Murphy.
This story is just too good to save for my autobiography. On April 30, 2011, I was at the closing night party of the Fiat Gallery in New York. Knowing former LCD Soundsystem front man James Murphy would be in attendance, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to have him autograph a photo I took of us a few weeks ago. I spotted James Murphy in the crowd and I said “Hey James.” He replied with “Oh Hey.” He looked up and saw my face and remembered me from a few weeks ago, so with a stronger inflection, he again said “Ohh Hey!” I then asked him to autograph the above photo and when he saw it, he confirmed he remembered the encounter by saying “Ohhhh Hey!” As he handed me back the signed photo, he pointed out the inscription he wrote on it – “Oh Hey, James Murphy.”
So awesome! My friend and I laughed about it all night long and it’s possible that “Oh Hey,” might be the new “Take it with your hand.”
Thanks again James!
