Happy birthday to Alexander Kapranos, lead singer and guitarist of Scottish indie band Franz Ferdinand. Who I last saw at Benicassim 2009 in Spain. The band were key to the revival of British indie music in the early 2000s.
This summer will see Franz Ferdinand take to the stage at Victoria Park in London for Field Day alongside Insightful Waffle favourites Sleigh Bells and Metronomy. The band will then be playing at festivals across Europe, in Japan and Russia.
