Click here to listen to an NPR interview with Franz Ferdinand lead singer, Alex Kapranos, who recently released, Sound Bites, a compilation of his food reviews. The artist was commissioned last year by the Guardian newspaper to blog about the interesting and sometimes wacky meals (deadly Japanese blowfish, anyone?) he had whilst on the road. The book has received accolades for the thoughtful reviews and Kapranos' dry wit.
In his NY Times review, Dave Itzkoff even went so far as to jokingly query:
Why Kapranos continues to waste his time performing for crowds of ecstatic, devoted, nubile fans when he’s already found his true calling is anyone’s guess.
