Franz Ferdinand's Alex Kapranos to Produce

Published: 2007-01-08
Glasgow's pride, Alex Kapranos from Franz Ferdinand is ready to take his stab at producing.

Alex Kapranos has signed on to produce The Cribs' new disc. In Vancouver, they are currently working on the follow-up to 2005's The New Fellas. The two bands first met when The Cribs' were asked to play the opening gig for Ferdinand as they toured the states.

Both Sides of the table seem to be very excited about the new collaboration. Gary Jarman of The Cribs explained how Alex came about producing them, "Alex watched us every night and told us he was interested in helping us. So we went back to Wakefield to work on it and it was when he came to visit us that we were like, if he's willing to come to this place then he's definitely doing the record." Kapranos felt strongly about the band from the start and knew he could have some positive input on them, "The Cribs have that raw energy and attitude punk should have, but they also have one of the greatest senses of melody among any band around."
