FRANZ FERDINAND MET LEGENDARISCH SYNTHROCKDUO SPARKS NAAR DE MELKWEG
09 MAART 2015, AMSTERDAM
SAMENVATTING
Na de comebackplaat ‘Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action’ uit 2013 zet Franz Ferdinand een nieuwe en verrassende stap. Ze brengen een album uit met legendarisch synthrockduo Sparks uit Los Angeles, dat al 45 jaar actief is. De bands gaan samen op tour onder de naam FFS en staan op donderdag 2 juli in de Melkweg, Amsterdam. De voorverkoop start vrijdag 13 maart via www.melkweg.nl en www.ticketmaster.nl.
Volgens Ron Mael, die Sparks al sinds 1971 vormt met zijn broer Russell, gaat de samenwerking echt klinken als een mash-up tussen Franz Ferdinand en Sparks, en daar is veel bij voor te stellen. Leg bijvoorbeeld alleen al liedjes als ‘Sextown U.S.A.’ van Sparks-LP ‘Angst In My Pants’ (1982) of ‘Something For The Girl With Everything’ van ‘Propaganda’ (1974) naast een Franz Ferdinand-hit, en je hoort overeenkomsten genoeg. Die zitten hem in gevatte melodielijnen en teksten met een licht kitscherig randje, maar leg de zangstemmen van Franz Ferdinand-frontman Alex Kapranos en Russell Mael van Sparks eens naast elkaar, die behoorlijk veel van elkaar weg hebben.

De Schotten van Franz Ferdinand ontmoetten Sparks-leden Ron en Russell Mael voor het eerst al in 2007 en kwamen in de lente van 2013 samen in San Francisco om daar muziek te maken. Dat leidde tot een heel album dat inmiddels afgerond is. “We versmelten echt samen”, zei Ron Mael eerder al in een interview met NME. “Als Franz Ferdinand en Sparks twee treinen zouden zijn die met volle kracht op elkaar botsen, dan klinken we precies als het wrak.”

I was just wondering if WALK AWAY & ACHOO were still on the set list or were these just added for the London Troxy gig only?

I guess it was a big extra,since they were with a lot of questionmarks.

Walk Away and Achoo were both listed in the encore section with question marks, neither were played.
