Franz Ferdinand and legendary American band Sparks are joining forces to form a supergroup called FFS and they've confirmed a set at Benicassim.
Franz Ferdinand Biography
Scottish indie rockers Franz Ferdinand formed in 2002, with Alex Kapranos as lead vocalist / guitarist, Bob Hardy on bass, Nick McCarthy on guitar and Paul Thomson on drums.
Their second single 'Take Me Out' was a huge hit, as was their eponymous debut album. They won the 2004 Mercury Music Prize and two BRIT Awards. Second album 'You Could Have It So Much Better' reached the top of the UK Album Charts, and 2013 saw the release of their fourth studio album 'Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action'.
Alex Kapranos has told XFM he is surprised by how young their audience can be considering their début celebrates ten years in 2014.
Fraser Thomson was on hand at Balado this year to speak to the great and good: hear him chat to the likes of Kaiser Chiefs, Twin Atlantic and more...
Alex Kapranos says the claims that the band almost split have been exaggerated.
XFM looks back at the Demon Days of Editors, Maximo Park, LCD Soundsystem, The White Stripes and the stars of CCTV, Hard-Fi.
Which artists have come out of the block, all guns blazing? We pick half a ton of excellent debuts.
