The Franz Ferdinand/Jesus/Toilet Posting…

Posted on

I remember many, many moons ago the young Jenny Huston playing me the single from a brand new band there was a buzz about at the time that she was playing. I thought they had a strange, even slightly pretentious name and that the single was alright…

Of course I’m quite legendarily slow on the uptake when it comes to bands once or twice a year…Listened to the single a couple of times more, the light went on and the rest is history… The band were Franz Ferdinand, the song was Darts Of Pleasure.

The reason all of this is relevant today is that there have been a load of hits here from the franzferdinand.org message boards over the last day or so because someone linked to Damien’s Jesus Of The Shadows picture. You can check the post there out by clicking HERE but you’ll have to register to look at the quite substantial thread which at this stage doesn’t just encompass whether you can see Jesus in the picture, but covers most of ancient and modern philosophy too…

Being the polite young man that I am, holed up here at home with tonsils the size of regulation snooker balls (rest assued I’ll be on air on Monday even if I have to play back to back music for 2 hours!) I thought I might share something with them. One of my most prized physical possessions hangs on the wall of my toilet along with the Streets and Paddy Casey ones:

Sweet 🙂
