One less friend: James Murphy suing DFA co-founder Tim Goldsworthy
James Murphy just lost one of his friends. The LCD Soundsystem frontman is suing his fellow DFA Records founder Tim Goldsworthy for about $100,000 "owed" to the label, saying he's in breach of contract.
As DFA label manager (and Hey Dude star) Jonathan Galkin told Resident Advisor, Goldsworthy left NYC for the UK about three years ago, ostensibly for his family, and allegedly did so without so much as informing the company. Since he’s left, the label says it hasn’t heard a peep from him, and all their “attempts to amicably resolve this matter were rebuffed” by Goldsworthy. Murphy is seeking to recoup monies he says he’s spent on legal fees and feels he’s owed in punitive damages.
