Franz Ferdinand, the NME and Harry Snotter
Franz Ferdinand plan Harry Potter roles: "FRANZ FERDINAND have been asked to write some music for the next HARRY POTTER film and could even make a cameo! The band, who are currently touring the UK have been asked to take part in the project, with singer Alex Kapranos saying the band could play a "band of ugly sisters". He told VH1: 'We've been asked to write some music. There's a section where there's a band of ugly sisters playing and I think, well, some members of Franz Ferdinand may be the ugly sisters in the band.' He continued: 'There's an excitement and innocence about those films. I like how there's good and evil, and that's a clarity which is quite refreshing.' The most recent film, 'Harry Potter And The Prisoner of Azkaban', featured a cameo from Ian Brown."Hmm. "I like how there's good and evil ..." Yeah, right. I suppose it's easier to understand a binary concept than a thousand shades of grey. Take "good band" and "crap band". I wonder which cateogory FF fit into. Well, as they say, whatever the answer, "that's a clarity which is quite refreshing". And hey, Harry Potter, in the words of Go Russ Crowe and his mighty TOFOG, "you can swallow my gift".
