Franz Ferdinand

While the veteran Glaswegian post - pop-rockists did their bit to reaffirm the glories of British guitar music, their output in recent times has shown an inclination to move beyond all that - and then to come back to it. Their brand of post-punk revivalism, often dissed for being a tad "chameleonic," has long infused myriad influences, from the Merseyside bands of the '60s and grungy bar-band noise to rap-rock and electronic dance, the latter pulling them a little astray on their electro-tinged 2009 album, Tonight. Happily, their powerhouse live spectacle features several tracks from their latest album, Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action, a satisfyingly straightforward batch of poppy janglers that stand tall next to Franz Ferdinand's prized hits from the early days.
