Franz Ferdinand Reveal All About New Album
a brand new interview Alex Kapranos has been talking about how the
recording of the hugely anticipated second Franz Ferdinand album is
shaping up, and reveals a somewhat unexpected Bhangra and RnB influence
?I talked about this recently in an interview and it was a little
misinterpreted. I said that this record will be ?less cold?. By that I
mean there will be less of those brittle synth sounds. Nick [Carthy
guitarist] and I have been playing piano quite a lot, so that will
undoubtedly make an appearance. We aren?t going to start slapping on
string sections or horn parts however."
the band have been listening to a varied selection of bands for
inspiration, including ?[Brian] Eno, The Damned, Trout, Tiger Lillies,
Bowie, Bronski Beat, Beefheart, The Stanleys, Dylan. [George
Harrison?s] ?All Things Must Pass? was on the turntable for quite a
bit. A bit of Bhangra. The occasional bit of RnB. Whatever?s around. I
don?t know if it has much impact on how the record will sound.
