Artist: Franz Ferdinand
Label: Late Night Tales
UPC: 5060391090108
Genre: Dance

Franz Ferdinand are welcomed into the Late Night Tales family with a diverse 20 track selection of musical influences, inspirations, diversions and discoveries. The quartet have released four studio albums including their 2004 self-titled debut album, which went gold just about anywhere with a record store, as well as nabbing the Mercury Music Prize and a pair of Brits for Best British Group and Best British Rock Act. They've subsequently gone on to release You Could Have It So Much Better, Tonight: Franz Ferdinand and last year's Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action. Announcing itself with Franz Ferdinand's own exclusive cover version of the hugely collectible 'Leaving My Old Life Behind', originally performed by Jonathan Halper, (which appeared on the cult Kenneth Anger movie Puce Moment), their Late Night Tales mix flows between dark and light, introspection and affection, dancing and horizontal appreciation. Hear them join the dots between Can, Serge Gainsbourg and the West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band, Sandy's Nelson's percussion work-out 'Let There Be Drums', the irrepressible Ian Dury, funky sensations Zapp and the Disco Dub Band and sonic explorer Lee 'Scratch' Perry. It wouldn't be right for Franz Ferdinand to produce a mix such as this without a nod to the country that brought them together, so Glasgow's Life Without Buildings, whose uplifting 'New Town' appears alongside 'Reach for the Dead' by Boards of Canada. As they leave US wondering and wandering with American Spring's Brian Wilson-produced ' Sweet Mountain ', we take leave of our senses and suitcases on this tour bus of your mind. We've visited soul, funk, reggae, pop, Krautrock and others besides, but before we depart, Franz frontman Alex Kapranos provides a final farewell with the self penned story 'Defibrillator'.
