Win Butler: 'I thought James Murphy was a hipster douchebag I’d want to punch in the face'

Win Butler: 'I thought James Murphy was a hipster douchebag I’d want to punch in the face'

Not only has James Murphy produced Arcade Fire’s forthcoming world slaying album, but he and the band have broken a load of barriers down too. Speaking to the Guardian, Win Butler revealed his early views on Murphy:

"I always imagined he and LCD would be kind of insufferable…and he actually said the same about us – that people were talking so much about Arcade Fire before he had heard or seen us that he was like: 'Oh goddamnit … why are these stupid bands doing stuff with xylophone?'"

And it gets worse before it gets better:  "And then he saw us and thought: 'Wait, that's Arcade Fire?' And I did the same: 'Wait, that's the guy that I thought would be this hipster douchebag that I wanted to punch in the face and the balls at the same time? Great!'"

Win Butler: prepared to hate you, but also to make friends. Oh, and the article has a shedload of Fire info.
