Words So Leisured – The Franz Ferdinand Story

This is the story of a group of pals from Glasgow who formed a band and changed the face of British music forever. Listen here: https://franzferdinand.ffm.to/wordssoleisured

Narrated by comedian and Franz Ferdinand mega-fan Rose Matafeo, Words So Leisured hears the band revisit their extraordinary journey along with contributions from their friends, collaborators and those they’ve inspired.

This four-part mini-series – formed of all new, exclusive interviews – charts their career from playing in friends’ bedrooms to The Grammys: takes in the pinch-yourself highs and sometimes dramatic lows of being in a band.

The series goes behind the scenes of some of the biggest moments – meeting Bowie, winning BRITs, playing to millions – and candidly recalls the times it all almost fell apart. It also delves deeper than ever before into the stories behind the band’s most iconic songs.
