A song called, "Dan Treacy" by MGMT?

Post by dgold » Fri Jun 12, 2009 5:25 pm

I think MGMT may have written a new song about Dan Treacy from Television Personalities. MGMT has a new song, the title was written on the setlist: "Dan Tracey". In the lyrics it says, "Dan Treacy smiles..." and "He made his mind up". The tune seems a bit familiar. Anyone know about this / confirm it?

I'll post a youtube later when available. They played it 6-9-09 in Little Rock, and 6-11-09 in Memphis. MGMT is a US band that has done a couple shows with Television Personalities, in Norwich and Oxford UK 2008 I believe.
