See, I love the disco drum beat. I think it is pretty difficult to find an original drum beat these days(outside of maybe Radiohead, I can't think of anything I listened to recently that is truly unique when it comes to percussion).


People should check out the band that opened for them: Sons and Daughters - also from Scotland.

If you were to turn on Conan Obrien tonight, you would see a band called, "Franz Ferdinand", perform.

i know a lot of people really like them, but i think the hype outweighs the material. nothing really that impressive about them, but the same can be said for a lot of bands today. i much prefer the killers or radio 4, or ambulance ltd.

Crapola, I walked in to catch them going to commercial right after performing. I have the worst timing ever.

Conan ended the show saying something like, "I REALLY liked that band!" I agree.

I'm sure it will turn up online before the end of tomorrow.

That's where I'm getting my fix, anyway.

I know I've heard Ambulance Ltd. I think I liked them all right, but I can't really remember.

Anyway, I like Franz Ferdinand. The album is good fun, and sometimes that's all music needs to be about. I had my sister listen to Take Me Out--I've never seen her like a song so much on the very first listen. They're definitely catchy, which is a quality that turns some people off, but it doesn't bother me. So yeah, count me as a fan.

i saw. i couldn't tell if it was because my tv's sound was down so far (everyone was sleeping, i didn't want to wake them/die), but parts sounded extremly off. but then it sounded a hell of a lot better than some other bands that will remain nameless

their singer looks a LOT like this guy from a band that used to exist around here.

do you have the album (or have listened to it)?

The local, overly-commercial, college radio station in town plays the killers single over and over. It is quite catchy. They started playing it right before they started playing "Take Me Out" - and I would get the two confused.
