HATE IT! Franz Ferdinand Go Goulish

Sounds like a Hallowe'en joke! No, it's true!

Scottish hipsters, Franz Ferdinand, surprised many when they announced that they had been using human bones for percussion instruments on their upcoming album.

Speaking to MTV, lead singer Alex Kapranos casually mentioned that the band picked up the bones as a lark, but found that they created a unique sound that they just had to get down on record. The box of skeleton pieces was originally purchased from a doctor's estate auction with the intention of decorating their recording space with the relics. Instead, the pieces found a new life on Franz's new album.

Bit creepy, no? Best to rethink the idea of leaving your bones to science, eh? Goodness knows where they'll end up.
