I’ve been merrily humming Take Me Out since new Glasgow band Franz Ferdinand appeared on Jules’ BBC2 show last November, and have been dimly aware of the rave reviews in NME, and their appearance high on the ‘new acts for 2004’ lists from the BBC and NME. The single was out this week; this morning they were at no. 2 in the CD:UK chart. Roll on the Coca-Cola official UK chart tomorrow.
I think this is the first time I’ve bought a single on the week of release.
[update: 3 in the official chart. Hardly shabby.]
