The Glasgow band formed in 1992 and disbanded in 1999. The line-up also included Franz Ferdinand drummer Paul Thomson.
Speaking about how the band got together McKeown said: “Alex booked the acts at the Kazoo Club and 99p Club at the old 13th Note on Glassford Street in Glasgow.
Asked if fame has changed Kapranos, McKeown said: “He’s the same when we support him as he is when we don’t…courteous and gentlemanly.”
McKeown also revealed his friendship with CSS’s Lovefoxxx. He told Something For The Weekend: “(She) is a proper friend. Met her in Sao Paulo and have got drunk with her on so, so many occasions I barely know what she’s like sober.”
