Franz Ferdinand Frontman Shot By Gavrilo Princip Bassist
March 17, 2006 | Issue 42•12

GLASGOW, SCOTLAND—Lead singer and guitarist for pop band Franz Ferdinand, Alexander Kapranos, is in critical condition today after being shot by a man identified as the bassist for rock group Gavrilo Princip. “We ask fans to cooperate with Interpol to find the assailant, and call upon British Sea Power, Snow Patrol, and The Postal Service for help,” drummer Paul Thompson told music magazine NME Monday. “The suspect had links to The Decemberists and The Libertines, and we are following up on all leads.” It is unclear whether the shooting was linked to The Polyphonic Spree’s invasion of Belgium earlier this week.

    I got most of this joke, except for Gavrilo Princip, which I did not recognise.

    O, you know Gavrilo Princip. You know, Gavrilo Princip! You simply don’t forget someone like Gavrilo Princip (not to be confused with Victoria Principal).

    Also interesting, in the same entry: ‘Scottish rock band Franz Ferdinand, in fact named after the archduke, wrote a song about the shooting of their namesake titled “All For You, Sophia”. The lyrics include the following lines: “Bang, bang Gavrilo Princip/Bang, bang shoot me Gavrilo/Bang, bang, the first six are for you/Bang, bang, the seventh is for me”.’
