I know I haven’t reviewed Franz Ferdinand’s third album here (yet!) but I do think it’s very good, and it’s always a pleasure to have them around.
last week, they recorded a cover of Britney Spear’s ‘Womanizer’ for fabulous Radio 1 FM, and as this track has not had an official release, to the best of my knowledge, I thought I would share it with you:
…and as a treat, some other FF rarieties:
from the soundtrack of Hallam Foe:
A cover of David Bowie’s ‘Sound and Vision:’
An acoustic take on a single:
Franz Ferdinand -‘Walk Away (acoustic).’ mp3
An early demo:
Franz Ferdinand -‘Tell Her Tonight (demo).’ mp3
The b-side of their very first single, ‘Darts Of Pleasure’ (six years ago this August!) and one of the very best things they have ever done:
And a remix:
Franz Ferdinand -‘Take Me Out (Naum Gabo remix).’ mp3
It should go without saying that if you like these tracks you should go and buy the albums, see the band live etc..
