Listen to Austin City Limits Radio

Hits like "Take Me Out" and "No You Girls" are both a small part of the disquished sound that landed Franz Ferdinand at Austin City Limits. Playing together since 2001,  bassist Bob Hardy, guitarist Nick McCarthy, drummer Paul Thomson, and singer/guitarist Alex Kapranos have finely honed their unique brand of energetic rock n' roll over the years and sat down to speak with Chris Mosser on their home of Glasgow, the history of their name, and playing with fellow festival artist The Cure.
