Stonehenge, where the demons dwell
Where the banshees live and they do live well
Stonehenge
Where a man is a man and the children dance to
the pipes of pan
Stonehenge
Tis a magic place where the moon doth rise
With a dragon's face
Stonehenge
Where the virgins lie
And the prayer of devils fill the midnight sky
And you my love, won't you take my hand
We'll go back in time to that mystic land
Where the dew drops cry and the cats meow
I will take you there
I will show you how

Alex Kapranos says: ROCK ON or FUCK YOU!!!

JP Almeida (JP Almeida), Sunday, 24 October 2004 20:24 (fourteen years ago) link

Is that a picture of Alex Kapranos railing against reality pop as he is often want to do?

By the way, I love FF. That photo was taken during their gig on the Sudoeste Festival here in Portugal, and they were just ass-shaking fantastic... Better than the Strokes, by far. One should listen to "...Matinée", "Jacqueline" and "Michael", at least.

JP Almeida (JP Almeida), Sunday, 24 October 2004 20:28 (fourteen years ago) link

"Better than the Strokes" is a pretty low level to aspire to.

sometimes i like to pretend i am very small and warm (ex machina), Sunday, 24 October 2004 20:43 (fourteen years ago) link

Is that picture of Luke Skywalker flipping off the Emperor?

Ned Raggett (Ned), Sunday, 24 October 2004 20:50 (fourteen years ago) link

"Better than the Strokes" is a pretty low level to aspire to.

Just reacting to the most repeated comparison made here. To me, they were one of the best new acts I've heard this year.


Ned: it's a \oo/, not a .|.
;-)

JP Almeida (JP Almeida), Sunday, 24 October 2004 20:55 (fourteen years ago) link

They are better than The Rapture, Les Savy Fav, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and !!!.

kaiser wilhelm, Sunday, 24 October 2004 20:56 (fourteen years ago) link

Wrong!

sometimes i like to pretend i am very small and warm (ex machina), Sunday, 24 October 2004 21:05 (fourteen years ago) link

They're not as good as MOP, Lemar, Chicago, or Edith Piaf.

Chairman ROFLMAO (Dom Passantino), Sunday, 24 October 2004 21:06 (fourteen years ago) link

You're right. They are much better than The Rapture, Les Savy Fav, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and !!!.

kaiser wilhelm, Sunday, 24 October 2004 21:07 (fourteen years ago) link

why do they sound like a bunch of dumbshit high school indie fux?


DEAR DISCHORD RECORDS, DO NOT SEND ANY MORE RECORDS TO ENGLAND

sometimes i like to pretend i am very small and warm (ex machina), Sunday, 24 October 2004 21:09 (fourteen years ago) link

Yeah, they sound so much like Shudder to Think. I wonder if you've listened to the record. There isn't a bad song on it.

kaiser wilhelm, Sunday, 24 October 2004 22:12 (fourteen years ago) link

jon, why do FF bother you so much? are they really that ubiquitous on college campuses these days?

amateur!!!st (amateurist), Sunday, 24 October 2004 22:35 (fourteen years ago) link

(also, they are good, but i don't expect that to convince you)

amateur!!!st (amateurist), Sunday, 24 October 2004 22:35 (fourteen years ago) link

I have Deep House Party Volume 3!!!

Spencer Chow (spencermfi), Sunday, 24 October 2004 23:03 (fourteen years ago) link

I see 2 or 3 FF shirts at every dumb party.

Also, they are better than Nickelback.

is it good spencer!!!@

I like the majority of the songs on their self-titled, but I can't agree that it's as consistant as either of the Strokes releases.

billstevejim, Monday, 25 October 2004 03:32 (fourteen years ago) link

two weeks pass...
So this week the overrated Franz Ferdinand are being advertised on TalkSport radio.

The Scottish person doing the narrative marketing speak sounds like Edwyn Collins.

Can anyone confirm that it is Edwyn Collins !

DJ Martian (djmartian), Thursday, 11 November 2004 17:18 (fourteen years ago) link

Well, Edwyn Collins did the voiceover for a BBC SCotland Franz docu that was on last week, so it might just be him.

4 nights at alexandra palace is a strange definition of career crisis

p.s. which one of them was in the yummy fur? they were loads of fun.

cw (cww), Monday, 5 December 2005 15:28 (thirteen years ago) link

Franz Ferdinand are great when they do indeed not sound like The Strokes, like on "Eleanor Put Your Boots On".

Geir Hongro (GeirHong), Monday, 5 December 2005 15:39 (thirteen years ago) link

Geir Hongro relentlessly OTM on this thread.
