Hailed as the first great album of 2004, Franz Ferdinand's eponymous debut prompted" Rolling Stone" magazine to name the spiky Scottish band as one of the hot acts of the year. The band also won Britain's Mercury Music Prize for Album of the Year and three 2005 BRIT Awards.

Riding high on their success, and now heard on alt-rock airwaves across the U.S., Franz Ferdinand recently released their second album, "You Could Have It So Much Better." This biography places the band's achievement in the context of the exciting Glasgow music scene from which they emerged; there is also complete coverage of the tours and the first and second albums.
