Franz Ferdinand Biography - Finding the 'Right Words'
Whilst putting in time in various bands during the 1990s,
Alex Kapranos and Paul Thomson crossed paths at a party that would spark the beginnings of what was to become an award winning
songwriting partnership. By 2003 the band had signed to indie label Domino Records and released their debut EP Darts of
Pleasure. Hitting the big time with their 2004 single 'Take Me Out' and its iconic video, the band crashed the Top 3,
scoring success with its parent album soon after. Over the next year the art rock outfit would sweep the board, picking up
BRIT, Mercury and Ivor Novello Awards. A year later they followed up this success with You Could Have It So Much Better,
which shot to the top of the charts upon its release.
