Weirdness Ensues When I Take My Eye of the Ball

Don't you just hate when Real Life interferes with important things such as blogging? I have a multitude of things going on at the moment, alas. To paraphrase an old, old Alison Moyet song, my head is so full it is fit to burst. So, obviously, this is the perfect time to revive my once-passionate love affair with Glasgow's finest foursome: Franz Ferdinand. I know. I cannot explain it either (although I do suspect a 'eyeliner worn at recent awards ceremony' element). I'm not sure about their new album - I wasn't even sure about their previous album - but I have had the new album on repeat all day. Weird.

Here's the first single off their new album. Discuss among yourself if they are referencing Tennyson, Joyce or Homer..
