Franz Ferdinand Fail To Pay Restaurant Bill

FRANZ FERDINAND are being chased by a debt collector, because a restaurant owner claims they left his establishment without paying a $1,216 (GBP676) bill.

Band member PAUL THOMSON was celebrating with his new bride ESTHER at FROCKS eatery in Hackney, London, in April (04). Restaurant owner ANDY STEELE claims Thomson gave him a $360 (GBP200) cheque as a deposit for full payment - but the cheque then bounced.

Steele says he has yet to receive payment, five months later: "I just got fobbed off so I've got a debt collector trying to pursue it."

A band spokesperson says, "Paul's been away so much for the past six or seven months that he's not been able to keep track of his bank account."
