Franz Ferdinand is a Scottish rock band formed in Glasgow in 2002. The name of the band was originally inspired by a racehorse called Archduke Ferdinand. After seeing the horse win the Northumberland Plate in 2001, the band began to discuss Archduke Franz Ferdinand and thought it would be a good band name because of the alliteration of the name and the implications of the Archduke's death (his assassination was a significant factor in the lead-up to World War I).

Unkle is a British musical outfit founded in 1992 by James Lavelle. Originally categorized as trip-hop, the group once included producer DJ Shadow and have employed a variety of guest artists and producers.

Rhye is an R&B musical project of Canadian singer Mike Milosh. It originally consisted of him and Danish instrumentalist Robin Hannibal.
