Emotional Haircut

Album: American Dream (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • James Murphy played a Supro Dual Tone guitar on "Emotional Haircut." The LCD Soundsystem leader had worked with David Bowie on his Blackstar album and it was because of the Thin White Duke's advice that he picked up the instrument.

    "Bowie said you should get a Supro Dual Tone, it's what Link Wray played," Murphy explained to Uncut. "He had two Supro Dual Tone guitars and he was very proud of them. So I bought one and played it on Emotional Haircut on the new album and love it."
