Ferdinand Fans Petition For The Return Of Kapranos' Fringe

FRANZ FERDINAND fans are so unimpressed with singer ALEX KAPRANOS' new-look spiky hair, they are petitioning online for the return of his trademark fringe.

Kapranos shaved his floppy locks off in February (05), but the drastic change has proved too much for followers, who are calling on the Scottish star to recreate the look of "freedom, truth, beauty, justice" he was sporting when the band launched to fame last year (04).

At present, there are 200 signatures demanding Kapranos steer clear of scissors and allow his hair to grow back.

A statement on www.petitiononline.com/fringe/petition.html, reads, "If you are aware of the Scottish rock band Franz Ferdinand, you may also be aware of their lead singer's late fringe. The fringe of Alexander Kapranos symbolised a great many things to his fans - freedom, truth, beauty, justice - and he also had to push it attractively out of his eyes in order to see. We liked that.

"We have decided that it is necessary to start up this petition, asking for Mr Kapranos to kindly grow his fringe back, so that freedom, truth, beauty, justice and hair-flipping are restored to mankind."

And the bizarre campaign appears to be working.

A response from Kapranos on the official Franz Ferdinand website reads, "Bl**dy Hell. There's an online petition for me to grow my fringe back. Er... It's getting there."

The multi-BRIT AWARD winners are currently recording the follow-up to their 2004 eponymous debut album in Scotland.
