FFS is two headliners in one: Scottish rock band Franz Ferdinand, whose song "Take Me Out" was a worldwide hit in 2004, plus the American pop-rock group Sparks, which was formed in 1972 by brothers Ron and Russell Mael. In today's session, hear songs from FFS's self-titled debut album, performed in concert this summer at the Edinburgh Festival Theatre.
