Ferdinand Top Winners At Nme Awards

Rockers FRANZ FERDINAND emerged victorious at last night's (17FEB05) NME AWARDS in London, where they picked up the Best Album and Best Track honours.

The Scottish band's eponymous debut record was the most popular among readers of weekly UK music magazine NEW MUSICAL EXPRESS (NME), who also voted Franz Ferdinand's TAKE ME OUT as Best Track.
