Franz Ferdinand – The Fallen/L. Wells (CD Review)

The spring brings us a new Easter tale in ‘The Fallen’. According to Alex Kapranos this new single from their multi-million selling album is ‘..about someone I know coming back as the reincarnation of Christ, and imagining what they would do. In this my case turning water into wine & getting it on with Mary Magdalene.’. Fair enough I say. The heavy pop guitars are still present and the catchy little riff bobs about in my head while the lyrics are memorable while drunk – a sure-fire hit in my books!

Buy ‘The Fallen’ from Amazon

There is a brutally deconstructed remix my French outfit Justice that bears little relation to the original and sounds like the sugarhill gang run through a blender and served on a bed of freshly cut rock guitar.
