Franz Ferdinand

Heard of these guys? They're Scottish, I think. And they're quite good....kind of like the Strokes, only more dancey. And indie rock.

And yes, they ARE named for the Austro-Hungarian Archduke whose death started WWI.

I have heard SOOOOO much hype about them. I LOVE the Strokes, and I love indie-dancy music. Truly, is the hype warranted? Or is it alot of the melodramatic Brit press on this one? I really do want to check them out, though.

def check 'em out if they sound interesting. That album was in high rotation for me for a long time. Huuugely catchy. I'm not sure if it has too much staying power.. but even if it doesn't it rocks hard and is worth the investment.

Yay, they are Scottish. From Glasgow. The drummer Paul is related to me. He used to come and stay with my aunt when he was wee.

I seem to recall yertle the turtle giving them a a few weeks ago too. They are playing one of their tracks ( film clip) on RAGE tomorrow morning so I'll check it out. They are rumoured to be playing at a 2 day concert( Splendour) in Australia this winter.
Scotland sure has produced some great musicians over the years...speaking of which, we just had the 100th Easter Highland Gathering here near where I live...and I missed it

ahhh well..here's to the 101st gathering

PS: if any Aussie's read this...before tomorrow
11:00am
The Hype - THE HAMPDENS Sony
Somewhere Down The Barrel - THE DISSOCIATIVES Virgin
Take Me Out - FRANZ FERDINAND Sony
They are the last song on RAGE, which usually suggests the hottest song of the week in Oz.

I emailed you back.

I always wonder if groups named after historical figures, etc purposely use that name as some symbolic gesture, or just think it's a fun name...
