法兰兹‧费迪南 (Franz Ferdinand) 是一队英国独立摇滚组合,2001年在苏格兰的格拉斯哥组成。乐队名称是按奥地利的费迪南大公而名。从首张同名专辑开始,他们即在英国乃至全世界掀起一股独立摇滚的复古风潮。除了获得水星奖肯定外,NME杂志将他们用作封面,并说,“在美国乐队The Strokes大兴复古车库摇滚之道的今天,英国本土也迎来了Franz Ferdinand”。
组合成员
主唱、吉他手:Alex Kapranos
和音、吉他手、键盘手:Nick McCarthy
贝斯手:Robert Hardy
鼓手、和音:Paul Thomson
成立
在90年代,乐队成员分别加入不同的组合,包括The Karelia、Yummy Fur、10p Invaders和Embryo。Alex Kapranos和Paul Thomson曾同时加入组合Yummy Fur,然后合作创作歌曲。同一时间,Alex教他的朋友Bob Hardy玩低音吉他。在2001年,Alex遇上了刚从德国回到苏格兰的吉他手Nick McCarthy。 在2003年5月,乐队和独立唱片公司Domino Records签下合约,并灌录了一张EP﹐其后Domino将这张EP命名为Darts Of Pleassure并在2003年推出,封面由鼓手Paul Thomson设计。这张EP登上了英国流行榜第43位。在2003年后期,乐队赢得2004年的NME Awards的Phillip Hall Radar Award。
乐队名
乐队的名称原是受一只叫The Archduke的赛马启发,在电视看过它后,组合开始讨论Archduke Franz Ferdinand这个名及认为它是个好名字。这是因为名称的英文发音和费迪南大公之死的暗示(他的暗杀是第一次世界大战的主因)。组员曾在一个非常早期的访问中讨论过: Bob说:“我们主要喜欢它(名称)的读音。”Alex补充:“还有它的头韵。他也是一个惊人的人物。他的生命,或者生命的终结,是整个世界改变的催化剂......他是历史的中心点。但我不想将名称赋予理智。基本上,名称应该就像音乐一样好听。”Paul则有一个较伟大的观念:“我喜欢这个主意,如果我们变得流行﹐人们一听到Franz Ferdinand这个名可能会想起我们,并不是历史人物。”
在第一张专辑内的歌曲Take Me Out,是第二张发行的单曲。单曲的B-Side歌曲All For You Sophia,是根据费迪南大公和他妻子遭暗杀的事而写的。其实他的妻子是叫Sophie,并不是Sophia,这个改动是令歌曲听起来更好。
乐队历程
2004年,当Franz Ferdinand这个名字横空出世的时候,很多人都对乐队知之甚少。而随着乐队的首张专辑《Franz Ferdinand》在全球的成功,Franz Ferdinand乐队成为了歌迷关注的焦点。还好,Franz Ferdinand没有让我们等的太久。仅在上周专辑发行一年半之后,乐队便推出了这张最新专辑《You Could Have It So Much Better》。本张专辑在发行首周以8万1千张的销量排在Billboard 200专辑榜的第8位,首周销量甚至比乐队上张专辑的10倍还要多。
作为英国新一代乐队的杰出代表,Franz Ferdinand的前进步伐从未停止。在本张乐队的最新专辑当中,Franz Ferdinand放弃了乐队的独立制作,请来了著名制作人里奇·科斯蒂(Rich Costey),这是本张专辑值得注意的一个变化。而事实证明,Franz Ferdinand这次决定是十分正确的。在出色的制作人里奇·科斯蒂的点化之下,乐队在《You Could Have It So Much Better》中音乐的表现力相对以前要丰富了很多。新专辑中乐队除了几首以招牌似的节奏和以吉他为主线配器的“传统”歌曲之外,乐队还进行了不少令人惊喜的尝试,比如在以往的Franz Ferdinand的歌曲中不太常见的浪漫小调《Eleanor Put Your Boots On》,给人的感觉颇像是The Beatles的保罗·麦卡特尼(Paul McCartney)的作品。而专辑中另一首以钢琴为主旋律的歌曲《Fade Together》也是全新的Franz Ferdinand带给乐迷们的惊喜之一,让我们看到了Alex Kapranos的另一面,原来Kapranos也可以如此深情!
去年,初次露面的Franz Ferdinand就给了全世界一个惊喜,而在不断成熟和进步的Franz Ferdinand在今年再次给我们带来了这张“高质量”的唱片。虽然对歌迷们来说没有了“初次见面”的惊喜,但听过这张新专辑后,所有喜欢Franz Ferdinand的歌迷们肯定还会毫不犹豫的竖起大拇指。
2001年,当苏格兰格拉斯哥两个怀揣音乐理想的年轻人Alex Kapranos和Bob Hardy开始一块玩音乐并有组乐队的念头的时候,接受过专业训练的钢琴手Nick McCarthy在这个时候出现了。同时,McCarthy还会演奏贝斯。而当在Yummy Fur乐队担任鼓手的Paul Thomson加入的时候,这支以艺术学校学生为班底的乐队拥有了较为固定的阵容。
在人员稳定之后,乐队取名为Franz Ferdinand(导致一战爆发的被刺的奥匈帝国大公的名字),并选择了一个名为Chateau的地方开始专心做音乐。2002年夏,乐队已经录制完成了首张EP《Darts of Pleasure》。2003年夏,Franz Ferdinand和Domino公司签约并已经开始小有名气。2004年初,单曲《Take Me Out》的发行使Franz Ferdinand在英国大受欢迎。2004年2月,乐队发行首张专辑《Franz Ferdinand》,乐队独特的风格受到了越来越多歌迷的喜爱和认可。而《Franz Ferdinand》还战胜了包括the Streets,Keane在内的诸多强劲对手获得2004年的英国水星音乐大奖。
2005年10月4日,Franz Ferdinand发行了乐队第二张专辑《You Could Have It So Much Better》。
在2007年后期,法兰兹‧费迪南在格拉斯哥灌录第三张录音室专辑。在一个与英国报章独立报的访问中,乐队表示第三张专辑会受非洲音乐影响。 在2008年6月6日,乐队的官方网站已经修复,提供即将推出的专辑的节录。新专辑"Tonight: Franz Ferdinand"已确定将于2009年1月26日发行,目前已在某些英国通路开放预购。
2013年8月,乐队发行第四张录音室专辑《Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action》。

英文简介 (转自 Allmusic)
Glasgow's art-damaged rock quartet Franz Ferdinand -- named for the Austro-Hungarian Archduke whose murder sparked World War I -- feature bassist Bob Hardy, guitarist Nick McCarthy, drummer Paul Thomson, and singer/guitarist Alex Kapranos. In late 2001, Kapranos and Hardy had begun working on music together when they met McCarthy, a classically trained pianist and double bass player who originally played drums for the group despite no prior experience as a drummer. The trio had been rehearsing at McCarthy's house for a while when they met and started playing with Thomson, a former drummer for the Yummy Fur who felt like playing guitar instead. Eventually, McCarthy and Thomson switched to guitar and drums, and the band switched practice spaces, stumbling upon an abandoned warehouse that they named the Chateau.
Darts of Pleasure [EP] The Chateau became Franz Ferdinand's headquarters, where they rehearsed and held rave-like events incorporating music and art (Hardy graduated from the Glasgow School of Art, and Thomson also posed as a life model there). The bandmembers needed a new rehearsal space once their illicit art parties were discovered by the police, and they found one in a Victorian courthouse and jail. By summer 2002, they'd recorded an EP's worth of material that they intended to release themselves, but word of mouth about the band spread and Franz Ferdinand signed to Domino in the summer of 2003. The group's EP Darts of Pleasure, which led some to label Franz Ferdinand "the Scottish Interpol," was released that fall, and the band spent the rest of the year supporting groups such as Hot Hot Heat and Interpol. Franz Ferdinand's second single, Take Me Out, arrived in early 2004. The single propelled them to greater popularity in the U.K. and laid the groundwork for the band's debut album. Franz Ferdinand was released in February 2004 in the U.K. and a month later stateside.
You Could Have It So Much BetterFranz Ferdinand's success followed them across the pond; "Take Me Out" became a sizable modern rock hit, in part thanks to the song's cutting-edge video, which earned the Breakthrough Video award at that year's MTV Music Video Awards. The group's momentum continued with the release of the Michael single and Mercury Prize win over such artists as the Streets, Basement Jaxx, and Keane. Franz Ferdinand released their second album, You Could Have It So Much Better, in fall 2005. The bandmembers began writing songs for their third album that year, but scrapped them for a fresh set of songs that they planned to make into a "dirty pop" concept album. Franz Ferdinand tried out a few producers to help them go in a more dance- and pop-influenced direction, including Erol Alkan and Xenomania, the production team behind many of Girls Aloud's hits, before deciding on Dan Carey, who had worked with Kylie Minogue, CSS, Hot Chip, and Lily Allen. The song "Lucid Dreams" appeared on the soundtrack to Madden NFL 09 and was released on iTunes in fall 2008; early in 2009, the single Ulysses arrived a week before the release of Franz Ferdinand's third album, Tonight. That summer, the band released Blood, an album featuring dub-inspired remixes of Tonight's songs. Franz Ferdinand began working on new material in 2010, gradually incorporating new songs into their setlists while touring in 2012 and 2013. Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action, which featured collaborations with Hot Chip's Joe Goddard and Alexis Taylor, Peter Björn & John's Björn Yttling, Veronica Falls' Roxanne Clifford, and DJ Todd Terje, arrived in August 2013 and delivered a bold, streamlined sound reminiscent of the band's earliest work.
