FFS is the debut studio album by supergroup FFS, consisting of members from bands Franz Ferdinand and Sparks. It was released on 8 June 2015 in the . and on 9 June 2015 in the . under Domino Records. The album was recorded in a 15-day period in late 2014 and was produced by Grammy Award-winning record producer John Congleton. Although the album itself was recorded in 2014, the two bands have been recording with each other since the mid-2000s.

Taking only 15 days to record, Franz Ferdinand’s deep humour is brought to the fore with tracks like The Man Without A Tan and Johnny Delusional, while Sparks' pop prowess shines through on Call Girl and Police Encounters. The album did very well on the charts, registering in 11 separate countries.

Album · 2015 · 16 Songs. For all the arch humor, a measure of pathos means FFS never sound too pleased with themselves–not even on the operatic, titled-with-a-wink Collaborations Don’t Work. 1. Johnny Delusional.

Written by Fergal Kinney11 June, 2015. FFS – FFS (Domino Recordings). A collaboration ten years in the works, Franz Ferdinand and Sparks join forces as FFS. Fergal Kinney finds out if the album is big enough for the both of them. IT was in 2004 that Franz Ferdinand, in the midst of the whirlwind success of their debut album, were first caught by the Mael gaze. In the angular, wry art-pop of ‘Take Me Out’, Sparks quite rightly felt they had found kindred spirits.

On FFS, they spend 45 minutes trying every way they can. Johnny Delusional and Call Girl sound like Franz Ferdinand songs slightly retooled to accommodate Russell Mael’s voice, Ron Mael’s keyboards and something of Sparks’ arch lyrical presence ( I gave up blow and Adderrall for you, complains the latter). On Save Me from Myself they appear to have exhausted themselves and are reconciled to playing a supporting role, providing a walloping backbeat and guitars on a Sparks song.

The result, FFS, is not a meeting of equals: It's a marquee-name band throwing their weight behind a cult act that clearly inspired them, and the cult act showing who's really in charge. Franz Ferdinand and cult band Sparks have toyed with making a collaborative album for years. The result, FFS, is not a meeting of equals: It's a marquee-name band throwing their weight behind a cult act that clearly inspired them, and the cult act showing who's really in charge. Franz Ferdinand and Sparks initially floated the idea of working together in 2004, following the release of the former band's first album, which went platinum, and the latter band's 19th, which didn't chart.

Any hype sticker on this one (different from the heavyweight virgin vinyl)?

Detenta
I would take an educated guess that only 500 of these were pressed based on the fact that FNAC are doing another exclusive for New Order's upcoming album which is limited to 500 transparent vinyls. Also, I don't think it was as many as 1000+ - it seemed to sell out very quickly.
