Playboy ha instervistato Nicholas McCarthy e Alex Kapranos, due componenti dei Franz Ferdinand.
Rispondendo ad una domanda relativa al fenomeno iPod, posta partendo dal presupposto che molti artisti non sono felici della sua larga diffusione, Alex Kapranos ha dichiarato che:
I like the idea that, because of downloading, people are going to buy songs only if they are good. I think that’s a positive thing. It means lazy bands aren’t going to get away with giving you one hit single and an album full of filler. We like the idea that every song should stand up in its own right so you don’t have to listen to a song in the context of an album to understand it. I suppose that’s why I’m sympathetic to the download environment.
