Sound Bites: Eating on Tour with Franz Ferdinand is a book written by Alex Kapranos from the band Franz Ferdinand. It was published on 2 November 2006.

Sound Bites: Eating on Tour with Franz Ferdinand is a book written by Alex Kapranos from the band Franz Ferdinand. In September 2005, whilst touring the world with Franz Ferdinand, Alex Kapranos had begun writing about what he ate in the various countries he had visited. The book concentrates heavily on where he eats and the people he eats with and the unusual flavours he tastes on the road. Much of the book is compiled from the column he had for The Guardian.

Transferred from a culinary column Kapranos used to write for Guardian UK while on tour with the band, the book was breaking the rules of 'going to a foreign place, taste their food, write about it'. Instead, Kapranos wrote about other aspects around the food, what his other senses feel while eating a certain food. But, honestly, the man can really write.

In September 2005, Alex Kapranos began writing about what he ate while touring the world with the rock band Franz Ferdinand. The writing is as much about where he eats and the people he eats with as the unusual flavours he tastes on the road. Whether it's munching donuts with cops in Brooklyn, swallowing bull's balls with the band in Buenos Aires or queuing for a saveloy in South Shields, these are surprising and vivid snapshots of life on the road.

Alex Kapranos' Sound Bites is a great collection of food essays Kapranos penned while on tour (mostly) with Franz Ferdinand. so the guy from franz ferdinand tours the world and writes about what he eats. These little essays are tasty little tidbits with a twist. Kapranos' approach is unexpected and maybe a little twisted. The essays are delightful and this collection, while slim, will provide you with a lovely afternoon or two of reading. but it's more than that, it's not just the food, it's the atmosphere, it's the thoughts and feelings the food and atmosphere conjure up. it's all there. each "chapter" is no more than two pages, a quick sampling, but in those two pages

Whether it’s munching donuts with cops in Brooklyn, swallowing bull’s balls with the band in Buenos Aires or queuing for a saveloy in South Shields, these are surprising and vivid snapshots of life on the road. Funny, poignant, sickening or sexual depending on the situation, the material, both new and previously published in the Guardian, is fascinating and entertaining.
  • JUST DO IT
What an enjoyable read! Alex Kapranos, lead singer of Franz Ferdinand, has a delightfully descriptive and entertaining way of bringing you with him as he travels with his band mates and indulges his taste buds with both the exotic and the ordinary. It's a very open, often hilarious, account of his reaction to some very unique dishes from around the world. He even lists the names and locations of each restaurant he's dined at. Thank you Alex for taking us with you on your journey.

I loved this book, but I wish there was an audiobook available. I first found out about it on an episode of (I think) Fresh Air on NPR when it first came out and Alex read an excerpt from it. Reading it myself was good, but it's so much more enjoyable hearing it in the writer's voice. I would love to see Alex on a food/travel show.

Even if you aren't a fan of Franz Ferdinand you can enjoy this book. Filled with quirky and original takes on eating around the world. Alex Kappranos does a great job with narration and description of his food adventures while touring. A great read for the casual reader looking for something that's not to serious. This book will put a smile on your face and might even inspire you to try new foods.

This collection is great for people who are into food, but not "foodies". I.e., people who would be just as happy finding the best banh mi in town as eating in a 3 star restaurant. MFK Fisher he's not, but if you like trying new food as part of a life-long adventure, you'll enjoy these stories.

I had anticipated reading this book for a few years...I am extremely satisfied with the work the lovely Mr.Alex Kapranos has done. He is not a foodie or food critic, but yet he makes food sound so intruiging. Especially the cakes...I got hungry more than once reading this book and the illustrations were very good and entertaining, big thumbs up to Mr.Andy Knowles.
This is the first book I have ever read under this category, and I'm "hungry" for more. Maybe under my circumstances, you should enjoy it as much as I did.
  • Malojurus
You would never expect a rockstar to write like this. Not saying we should hold celebrities at lower standards, but this book is above and beyond works of many professional food critics.
It's an eloquently written series of edible snapshots that captures the writer's culinary history and his more recent dining discoveries, both delicious AND disgusting.
Because each 'chapter' is an independent piece, you can bookmark it and come back without feeling lost at sea.
