Oh Hey - James Murphy and Geoffrey Dicker

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!

On April 30, 2011, the Fiat Gallery in New York (also the former Deitch Projects) threw one hell of a closing night party.  Free hors d’oeuvres and cocktails were flowing and the crowd was treated to a half hour set by Jamie Lidell.  Former LCD Soundsystem front man James Murphy also did a DJ set.  Unfortunately, I had a previous engagement, so I was unable to stay for the entire party, but upon encountering Murphy, he remembered me from a few weeks ago when we met and he said “Oh Hey” to me.  I presented a photo I wanted him to autograph, which he immediately recognized and after seeing it, he said “oh hey.”  Naturally, on the photo, he wrote “oh hey, James Murphy.”  So cool!  Now back to Jamie Lidell.
