Having recently sold out their headline show at Village Underground, London collective Franc Moody have confirmed a show at London’s Heaven for 17th April.
Like so many things, it all started with one great night out. Franc Moody see themselves as a collective, and have countless members once you include the musicians, guest vocalists, producers and animators that all play a part. But at the core of the band are the two ringleaders and songwriters, Ned and Jon. While Jon was born into a family of classical musicians, Ned was musically educated by the stereo in his parents' car, blasting old soul, 50s/60s New Orleans music. The pair first met when they were part of a group of bands and musicians who took over an abandoned warehouse in North London, which soon became a staple of the local area thanks to the raucous live shows they put on which lasted well into the night: the kind of parties where there’s no bouncer, one portaloo, and hundreds of party-goers crammed in like sardines as sweat dripped from the ceiling. “We learned to love performing music that made people dance,” explains Ned, “in the same way those old funk and soul artists used to. In fact, what we were doing at the warehouse was sort of in a similar tradition to the Zydeco sessions and crawfish boils around South Louisiana, purely focused around dancing. It was quite simple really.”
