Franz Ferdinand - Maid To Minx (Lungleg cover) 2014

In which contemporary Glasgow meets 90s Glasgow.

The links between Franz Ferdinand and the Yummy Fur are well known, with a number of members of Franz having passed through the later period lineups of the Fur. The Yummy Fur were led by John McKeown, whose sister Jane played bass in Lungleg.

Lungleg formed shortly before the Yummy Fur, in 1994. Their first 2 EP's were released on the London label Piao!, and they went on to record an LP for the Glasgow label Vesuvius in 1997, which featured an early version of 'Maid To Minx'.

In 1999 the band reworked and re-released the single for Southern Records.

The clip below is the 1999 version and, by the by, the artwork for Maid To Minx the album was created by Jaime Hernandez, of Love and Rockets fame.
