In September , Alex Kapranos began writing about what he ate while touring the world with the rock band Franz Ferdinand. The writing is as much about where he eats and the people he eats with as the unusual flavours he tastes on the road. Funny, poignant, sickening or sexual depending on the situation, the material, both new and previously published in the Guardian , is fascinating and entertaining.

Alex Kapranos is the singer and guitarist of Franz Ferdinand. Andrew Knowles is touring drummer and keyboards player with the band, and a graduate of the Glasgow School of Art.

Sound Bites

He talks to Frank Bures about his new book and his culinary adventures on the road. A lex Kapranos has traveled around the globe two and a half times as the lead singer of the Scottish band Franz Ferdinand. Along the way he ate a few things, and in and he sent back spare, vivid dispatches about those meals for a column in The Guardian. Those columns have been collected and combined with new material into a book of the same name: Sound Bites. In it Kapranos—who worked in a restaurant kitchen before hitting big with his band—reveals himself to be a fearless eater. They have a tourist map spread on the cafe table in front of them, by the English translation of the menu. He is saying that his experience is richer.


Alex Kapranos: ‘Sound Bites’ and Savory Food

I am eating in Osaka and entrust myself entirely to the perfect taste shown by my Japanese hosts. Akiko and Fukima translate the menu - symbols painted on teak tickets that hang from brass pins on a board. Smelt, sashimi, fugu. Isn't that blowfish?
