Rockers Franz Ferdinand are considering performing a gig at the Scottish
Parliament this June (05) to help publicise a political debate about Scotland's
need for high-profile music award ceremonies.
Member of Scottish Parliament PAULINE McNEILL will present a motion called
"Franz Ferdinand Rocks" on Wednesday (16MAR05) to argue for bringing more
events like THE Brit Awards to Scotland.
And the Glasgow-based stars have been asked to join fellow Scots Idlewild
and Mull Historical Society at the Scottish Parliament to bring attention to
the county's musical talent.
An insider at the parliament said, "They have been part of the fabric of
the Scottish pop scene and the British pop scene for the last year. Even some
of the crusties in parliament know who they are."
