Anyone who’s been reading Losing it for a while might just recall me getting quite excited about Franz Ferdinand in an earlier post. Well, as I ever so slightly predicted, their album did very well indeed, even winning the Mercury Music Prize.
Their second album, You Could Have It So Much Better with Franz Ferdinand is nearly here . The first single, Do You Want To is out next month, and is getting a lot of plays on radio and TV. I love it already , and I’m looking forward to buying it, and indeed the album.
And today, I learned that Franz Ferdinand will be playing Newcastle’s Metro Radio Arena in November. Not only that, but one of the support acts are Editors, whose debut album The Back Room is rather good…
Tickets go on sale on Wednesday.
 Insert standard remark about this not being about any late Archdukes
