Franz Ferdinand on Triple J

On a recent visit to Australia’s Triple J radio network, the Scottish post-punkers Franz Ferdinand showed their appreciation for their host country by covering one of its greatest bands. For Like A Version, Triple J’s covers series, Franz did a live-in-studio mostly-acoustic cover of “Was There Anything I Could Do?,” the classic 1988 single from the always-sharp jangle-rockers the Go-Betweens. Watch the driving, elegant cover version below.

Franz Ferdinand’s new album Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action is out now on Domino.
