Franz Ferdinand’s “Late Night Tales tracks that didn’t make it”

Franz Ferdinand have just joined the esteemed ranks of Late Night Tales compilers, just releasing their own compilation into the series. However as a sort of audio DVD extra the band’s Paul Thomson has made up a bonus Playlist for Q of songs that just missed out on making it into their final selection.

Jacques Dutronc – Hippie Hippie Hourrah
“I’d heard The Black Lips play their smacked out version of this live a few times and never realised it was a cover. The whole thing just reeks of queasy debauchery, like when you think it’s a good idea to have a cigarette after too many drinks, even though you don’t smoke, so you’re buzzed AND nauseous, that kinda thing.”

Roberto Cacciapaglia – My Time
“Roberto Cacciapaglia is more known in modern classical and experimental music circles, this was his attempt at a pop record, he enlisted a model from the midwest called Ann Steel as his muse and frontperson. This song is beautifully weird, not a million miles away from O Superman but with a push n pull hydraulic rhythm and beguiling chord progression. The cover, Ann floating by a mirror in a space age jumpsuit with biggles hat kinda sets the tone.”

The Jellies – Jive Baby on A Saturday Night
The Jellies were from Cambridge and this single was their only release, self released (on Jelly records naturally), they took a box of seven inches to Rough Trade in 1981 and forgot to dish out the rest of the goods. Thurston Moore had a copy and my mate Mike had two which he kept in a locked vault and planned to reissue until Johnny Trunk beat him to it. It’s a proper oddity, a locked downbeat groove with a naive jump rope chant on top.”

Alex Kapranos talks about Glasgow music scene
The Postcard sound and aesthetic later influenced bands like Belle And Sebastian and Franz Ferdinand and, in Goddard’s words, “turned Glasgow from a cultural tundra into Tin Pan Alley”. Yet the label’s demise left a significant void in Scotland, with many of the big acts of the subsequent decade – like The Jesus And Mary Chain, Primal Scream and Teenage Fanclub – electing to sign with London-based labels like Blanco y Negro and Creation. By the mid ’90s, however, the independent urge was stirring in Glasgow once again: the bands had moved beyond Bellshill jangle-pop, fanzines started appearing and labels like Creeping Bent, Vesuvius and Modern Independent suddenly started popping up. At the centre of it all was the 13th Note, a venue on Glassford Street where a 20-year-old Alex Kapranos had taken over the running of the Kazoo and 99p club nights.

During Kapranos’ tenure, the Note became the place where local bands would take their first faltering steps on the live circuit. “It was all pretty anarchic,” he remembers. “I didn’t know how to run a club, and a lot of the bands who played there were still trying to work out how to be a band. But over the years, you’d see people going from barely being able to play their instruments to becoming something exceptional.” Among those people were Stuart Murdoch and Mogwai, who played their first gig there, but the star of that scene was Willie Rogan, “a total maverick” who fronted a riotous art-punk band called Trout. “I’ll always remember when [American songwriter/producer] Kim Fowley came to play at the Note and Willie heckled him all night,” laughs Kapranos. “Eventually, Fowley goes, ‘Why don’t you get onstage and we’ll see what you can do?’ So Willie did! He got up and totally outshone him!”
Although John Peel visited the Note and took a shine to bands like The Yummy Fur and Urusei Yatsura, Kapranos says they were adamant about not courting the media. “We felt totally – and wilfully – disconnected from anything going on in London. None of us felt any connection with Britpop at all. Glasgow at that time was like a universe within a universe, because it was ours and nobody down south really knew anything about it.”

Most art schools have some sort of cultural resonance, but Glasgow’s School Of Art has long been of unusual significance. For Alex Kapranos, “the most important thing was Divine [Andrew Symington’s long-running funk, soul and psychedelia night], which was at the art school, and it was where we’d go to drink and dance and hang out together. Those scenes were running parallel to each other, stimulating and interchanging with each other.”

Is my imagination or Alex's girlfriend is really young?

I don’t know…it seems to me, that she’s 30 (±3 years), but I can’t say I’m a specialist of defining people’s age through photos.
