HER MAJESTY'S REQUEST: Perhaps the most interesting thing in the diary filed by Domino records boss Laurence Bell for The Daily Telegraph (besides it being in The Daily Telegraph) was this little bit:

I took the Eurostar to Paris to see Franz Ferdinand play their biggest ever headline show, in front of a crowd of 6,500. They'd received invitations to the Queen's Christmas ball at Buckingham Palace so I hand-delivered them. They were dumbfounded! After the gig they were presented with a gold disc designed by Hedi Slimane from Christian Dior, who is also one of their tailors.

But then, who needs indie credibility anyway?
