The first album is a great indie album, the second is good. Haven’t listened to anything else.

3/5. They’re fine

3/5. Think the 2nd album is better than the 1st haven’t heard anything by them since the guitarist left and the 2 from the 1990’s joined.

They did an alright cover All My Friends which is very, very 2007 probably more than the original.

The Blood mix of Tonight is not bad better than that album anyway.

Came up on my first ever E to This Fire.

The 3est of 3s. Absolutely fine band, but haven’t given then much thought since the late 00s

Same comments. Same score.

  1. Great debut. Ffs is good. That’s it.

Don’t think they ever topped Take Me Out, which is properly great but, for me, very much of its time. I enjoyed the second album more than first, but never went further than that and probably never will. 3

Franz Turdinand. A band that thinks they’re way more clever and better than they are

  1. Not offensive, but not really any good

1, always thought they were quite shit tbh. Also thought their choice of name was a bit distasteful too

3, first couple of albums are decent and have a few really good tunes (and the execrable Eleanor Put Your Boots On). Lost interest after that.

Wouldn’t turn the radio off/5

Yeah, 3 here too. Loved the first album, second was fine, after that seems to have mainly dropped out of my consciousness. FFS was a surprisingly good collaboration too. Take Me Out remains an absolute banger and brings back vague and happy memories of indie club nights back then.

A high 2, first album was decent, nothing after that of any interest.

If this fire was so out of control, you think they would have called the fire brigade or something.

Underrated. Second album is great
