THE CHATEAU (LONDON) 24th October 2003 @ Electrowerkz, EC1


"Every corner is filled with curios: cages that the more adventurous audience members are using as fetish jungle gyms, small fabric homunculi, and to cap it all a seating area done up as a wrestling ring. Roland Barthes would be proud.

....Tonight is a night that demonstrates the potential the live format holds, about the way a group of musicians can shine, show off their skills, but also be so much more. Itís about the way music, art, performance, sculpture and architecture can live together, feed off each other, and complement each othersí vital force." (No Ripcord)

"Electrowerkz, despite being the size of a mildly impressive whale, is packed to the gills" (Play Louder)


"People fighting to get in" (Drowned in Sound)

" Tonight as part of their own Chateau club night Franz Ferdinand played two sets, both being filled to bursting with the songs that slap you in the face and lodge in your head, taking over the crowd without exception. By the end of the second set London had fallen for them and a major contender for the best British band of 2004 had arrived." (Stereo Effect)
