Quote from: ProvanFan on October 21, 2021, 11:47:10 PMI just looked up the lyrics to The Matinee Song by 'Franz Ferdinand' and found the opening line is about a white finger, not a right finger. I always thought it was right finger.
Quote from: holyzombiejesus on October 21, 2021, 10:51:35 PMThey were Domino Records' first proper big selling act, weren't they? In a way they're responsible for the masses of dreck the label went on to release once they had a bit of money. All those shitty bands.
Quote from: H-O-W-L on October 22, 2021, 12:50:36 PMGenuinely mixed this shower of belms up with Kaiser Chiefs when thinking about what I knew of them. Both total shit.
Quote from: peanutbutter on October 22, 2021, 01:05:03 PMI remember liking that they had a reasonably quick turnaround on the second album, for that period in particular there seemed to be a lot of bands with an acclaimed debut and then a 2.5+ year wait for something that sounded like rejects from the first album.
Quote from: The Culture Bunker on October 22, 2021, 01:08:57 PMEh, Franz Ferdinand's music did very little for me, but they certainly didn't have the sheer irritation factor of Kaiser Chiefs. Though in truth, that whole series of bands were probably what made me (aged in my early/md 20s) lose all interest in contemporary music and instead buy up the back catalogues of various New Wave/Post Punk bands instead (ie Wire, XTC, Psychedelic Furs, Gang of Four). Felt like you were getting what then newer bands were aiming at, but with actual enjoyable results.

Quote from: sevendaughters on October 22, 2021, 01:57:58 PMno he's the guy who runs Night School Records.
Quote from: Famous Mortimer on October 22, 2021, 06:12:11 PMI remember, being a slight fan of tape-label / indie 7" mainstays the Yummy Fur, being quite surprised most of them were now in Franz Ferdinand. EDIT: never mind, I'm not the first person to mention this (and don't have anything else interesting to say about them).
Quote from: The Mollusk on October 21, 2021, 06:44:29 PMWas the album they did with Sparks any good? Still haven't got around to that.
