Franz Ferdinand
Always Ascending

New Franz Ferdinand! I always felt that Franz transcended the glut of mid-2000’s indie that rushed in on their coattails, and sure enough here they still are in 2017, producing music that is interesting and fresh. Always Ascending features lots of synth action, with moments that even recall ...view item »

Franz Ferdinand

Honestly, who knew we'd look back on this one as fondly as we do? Franz Ferdinand's first record seemed hell-bent on compacting as many hooks as was feasibly possible in a post-punk record, with "Take Me Out" a prime example of overdoing it for the best results. Not much else needs be said about this record of smirking gloo...view item »

Franz Ferdinand
You Could Have It So Much Better

OK so the Franz Ferdinand have a new album out. They already feel like the old boys of a scene which is about to fall really hard on it's edgey, spiky art rock arse. Mind you they've kind of left that art rock behind and replaced it with pure pop. This is pretty commercial folks..... though I suppose they always had that about them. So ...view item »

Franz Ferdinand
Right Action / Love Illumination

Its the moment you have all been waiting for. The where-were-you happening for the twitter generation. The buzz in the queue for the sandwich van this morning was palpable, people tapping into their phones, word spreading up and down the line (which increasingly resembles that of a Minor Threat concert in ‘81). Yup its a new song by the Pi...view item »

Covers EP remixes: PART I

Milk anyone? Not content with releasing a bunch of Franz covers a while back Domino are releasing 2 12” singles of remixes of those brilliant cover versions. Milk anyone? The 1st EP sees LCD Soundsystem's take on Live Alone remixed by Toby Tobias turned into a bland house mix with th...view item »

Franz Ferdinand
Walk Away

First let's get this Franz Ferdinand Xmas single out of the way. It's really hard to cynical about 'Walk Away'. Unlike the jawdroppingly annoying 'Do You Want To', this has everything you'd want from a Kapranos & Co ballad. An opening guitar line that screams "classic" as it seems so familiar before it tumbles into the kind...view item »

FFS (Franz Ferdinand & Sparks)
FFS

Definitely not enough of this kind of thing happening these days: a totally implausible collaboration between Franz Ferdinand and Sparks, excellently titled FFS. The self-titled album brings us something more than just a blend of Franz’s indie-rock and Sparks...view item »

Franz Ferdinand
Fresh Strawberries

This is amazing. Where on earth are the chords in the chorus going? And why? They start descending downwards in a kind of familiar Zombies/Brian Wilson manner but then there’s an abrupt change where they head off into more familiar Franz Ferdinand territory bringing any melod...view item »

Franz Ferdinand
Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action

In 2013, Franz Ferdinand returned with a new album- "Right Thoughts Right Words Right Action". Musically the album can seen two ways- either as a return to form for the band or sticking to a sound that works for them. Well, they always stick to the same formula so you know what to expect, but that isn't a bad thing when it sounds like this. Fran...view item »

Tonight: Franz Ferdinand

Hi it's me, the "turdlinger" who doesn't like 'Do You Wanna' by Franz Ferdinand. Whoever wrote that gave us a right giggle. More insults/death threats ASAP please! They've proper got groovy on their "difficult" 3rd album, Tonight. The production by Dan Carey is super sharp on this album! 'Turn it On', the 2nd track (ignoring tha...view item »

Franz Ferdinand
Can't Stop Feeling

Franz Ferdinand have had far too many props from us recently as far as I'm concerned. I thought that last album was proper shit but then again I've never been a fan.. I can tolerate and occasionally even enjoy the odd tune of theirs but not 'Can't Stop Feeling'. Hilarious 'der ner ner der der' keyboard preset riffs, cod-disco beats and bollocks lyr...view item »

Blood

Well we weren't allowed to be part of that record store day which was a bit gutting cos we see ourselves as a record shop. The day came and went though but we managed to get some of the exclusive releases which came out on the day. One of which was the Franz Ferdinand dub LP called Blood. This was the limited CD that came free with the initial copi...view item »

No You Girls

I was trying to suss out what the scenario is in the Franz Ferdinand 'No You Girls' single sleeve. Some chap is on the deck looking well out of it and then the other guy is either booting him in the head or nudging his head with his foot to see if he's alive. Of course it's possible he fell over and landed on the other guys foot. Anyway the song is...view item »

V/A: "Hallam Foe", Original Soundtrack (Domino) It's a soundtrack to a film I haven't seen but it begins with Orange Juice's seminal Post-Punk pre indie-pop classic 'Blue Boy'. There's also contributions from King Creosote, Junior Boys, Hood, Juana Molina, James Yorkston, Cinema amongst others. I think maybe the exclusive is Franz Ferdina...view item »

No. It's the debut album from Domino's Top 5 straddling FRANZ FERDINAND!! 11 tracks of edgy, poppy & frantic nu-new wave indie pop. Sounding like an amalgam of all the best post punk bands (that ...view item »

Ulysses

Frank Ferdinand are back with their the 1st fruits from their up and coming Tonight: Franz Ferdinand album. 'Ulysees' is the name of this particular fruit and it's Franz by numbers if you ask me.

Darts of Pleasure

Franz Ferdinand are Domino's new great white hopes. Its art school rock from Glasgow that has energy aplenty. Its all a bit theatrical. I'm not sure about it  myself. There's something about it I don't like -  the pretty boy posturing doesn't help but forgetting about that the music it just leaves...view item »

Michael

A lot has been made of Franz Ferdinand's new single being a bit gay. Oh there's nothing like a bit of sexual ambiguity to get tongues wagging. Maybe he's singing about Princess Michael of Kent. Why is she called Michael anyhow? Anyway its a decent enough tune but definite third single territory and no 'Take Me Out' no matter what Brian ...view item »

The brothers Frank are (that would be Franz Ferdinand to you) with a pop tune that is so them it couldn't possibly be anywhere else. It's one of their cheeky upbeat pop numbers with all the hooks, twists and turns you'd expect from the brothers Frank. It's a double A side (which doesn't really translate to CD format now??)...view item »
