Franz Ferdinand: 'We Changed The Face Of British Music'

Scots rockers FRANZ FERDINAND claim their sound is so unique and ground-breaking, they have single-handedly improved the quality of British music.

The WALK AWAY hitmakers are confident the music industry would be in dire straits if it wasn't for their perky releases.

Frontman ALEX KAPRANOS, 33, says, "It's not arrogant to say we changed the face of rock music in Britain.

"The second part of the 90s and the beginning of the new century were very bad.

"It was one of the worst periods for British rock music. It was all bad and boring."

Franz Ferdinand have scored three top-ten hits in the UK to date and their debut eponymous album was the best-selling disc of 2004.
