Big news of the Day – May 10, 2012: Champagne Supernova indeed – a drunk Franz Ferdinand’s Alex Kapranos: ‘Oasis were fucking boring’

Well,…alrighty then. And I thought only athletes said dumb things on Twitter.

During the middle of recording the 4th Franz Ferdinand studio album, Alex Kapranos, lead singer of Franz Ferdinand dubbed during a Q&A May 8th Twitter session that Oasis were ‘boring’.

Responding to a seemingly innocuous query from a fan about what new advice Mr. Kapranos had new for musicians, something must have lit a fire: “Never cover Oasis. Never forget your friends.” When pressed for clarity on why new bands should not cover Oasis, Kapronos replied, “Ach. Nothing personal. Just because everyone does. And they’re so fucking boring”. Why do I sense Liam won’t be quiet about this? Let’s hope any festivals featuring Franz Ferdinand, Beady Eye and Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds are available on PPV. Oasis may have just found that first 3 oz of inspiration they need to reconsider a small reunion within the decade ahead.

When finally asked by a fan if he was bored in a hotel room Kapronos added:  “And Drunk. Heady combo”. A little too much Champagne Supernova indeed.

Cheers!
