"Xenomania is a total cottage industry"
Posted at 8:57 AM, 02 October 2008 -

Paul Thompson from Franz Ferdinand speaks to Q magazine about Xenomania's work method and parting ways with them:

«Brian's working methods were quite enlightening. He has a team in the kitchen listening to Radio 1 all day, monitoring what's being played. And he has somebody watching fashion TV all day making notes on what kind of beats they're using. It's a total cottage industry and it's perfect if you're Girls Aloud - five girls who won a TV talent show - but not if you're us.

When we came out of Xenomania it made me reassess the proclamations I'd made about the fact that we're a pop group. I realised we don't operate in the way that most pop groups work. We don't have songs written for us in the way that modern pop groups do. I suddenly though, Fucking hell! We're not a pop group! What the fuck are we then?»
