Spindly art-school types with nutty accents bouncing through quirky-jerky 80s dance-punk jams - no, it's not Franz Ferdinand, but you can see why they'd want the Futureheads to open shows on their current tour. Decent Days And Nights confirms all suspicions that the Sunderland smart-arses have indeed been into their moms' Gang of Four records, as indicated by the Andy Gill production credit. Some might argue that's taking 80s revisionism a bit too far, but if they insist on copping Gill's sound, they might as well have him in the studio to get it right. On the upside, at least they're not ripping off T'Pau. The Futureheads join Franz Ferdinand at the Docks Friday (October 1).
