CD of the Week from Franz Ferdinand
The Glasgow, Scotland based band Franz Ferdinand formed in 2002, with band members Alex Kapranos (lead vocals and guitar), Bob Hardy (bass guitar), Nick McCarthy (rhythm guitar, keyboards and backing vocals) and Paul Thomson (drums, percussion and backing vocals). Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action is their fourth studio album. Kapranos has described the record as dealing with "the idea of the cynic's search for optimism and the skeptic's search for a manual."
