The truth be told I have no time for Franz Ferdinand’s music of late which seems to be a pale if harmless parody of itself but you should not let that get in the way of this excellent compilation chosen by the band. Its a perfectly assembled collection of the great and the good from 1960’s to the modern day with a myriad of highlights from The West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band’s gorgeously slinky ‘Eighteen is over the Hill’, to ‘Connection’ by the ever-brilliant Can, to the drum tastic John Barry-isms of Sandy Nelson to the wiry and much-missed Life Without Buildings. Its flows brilliantly as all the best mix tapes should do and there’s a great section where it goes from Paul McCartney & Wings to Boards of Canada to Oneohtrix Point Never without batting an eyelid.
The best is saved 'til (almost) last with the eerie heat haze of ‘Sweet Mountain’ by the Brian Wilson-assisted America Spring from deep in the early ‘70’s. Also includes a Franz cover of ‘Leaving My Old Life Behind’ by Jonathan Halper and an Alex Kapranos spoken word piece. Invite these lads to bring some records to your party and you won’t be disappointed.
