FFS, "So Desu Ne"

The bizarro collaboration between Franz Ferdinand, the tight-trousered Scottish mod boys, and Sparks, the 1970s glam-prog duo who made cult classics like Kimono My House and A Woofer in Tweeter's Clothing. Most of their FFS album is ornate art rock, except this crazy little thing — a manic synth-disco ode to a Japanese punk girl who guns them down with a Hello Kitty Uzi. "So Desu Ne" would have been a smash in 1979 or 1983 or 1999 or 2005; no clue what it's doing in 2015, but glad to have it here.
