Franz Ferdinand

Apologies if there's already a thread on this rockin' Scottish group, I haven't been very up to date.

I would like to go on record and say that Franz Ferdinand are great and everyone please go listen to them and if I had the money I'd probably buy their album right away but I don't think it's locally released yet.

Oh, man, I was hoping for a thread about the Archduke of Austria-Hungary who was assasinated in 1914 igniting WW1 Is this who they are named after? Do they have his pic on the album cover? I mean, some people do things like that.

Yep yep, the album's very good. Though I'm a bit biased as it's my uncle's cousin that is the drummer.

So if you're lonely...
you know I'm here waiting for you
I'm just a crosshair
I'm just a shot away from you
and if you leave here
you leave me broken, shattered, I lie
I'm just a crosshair
I'm just a shot, then we can die



It is indeed the catchiest song ever (or at least rivaling Kylie's 'Can't Get You Out of My Head'...but with much better lyrics and structure).

Not bad I guess. I think both your comments over-hyped it a little for me though.

Seems just like another disco-rock band from 'Take Me Out' though. That's just my impression after one song though.

These guys fucking rock so much it's ridiculous... so catchy they make the strokes sound bland.

Fav songs are: Take me Out, Dark of the Matinee, 40 Ft, and Come On Home.

The whole album is killer, though. Absolutely killer.
