Franz Ferdinand continue to make the rounds on the late-night talk show circuit. Just a week after they commandeered New York's iconic Ed Sullivan Theater for a Live on Letterman webcast, the dapper Scots dropped in on Conan last night (July 29) to display "Right Action," the pseudo-title track off their upcoming fourth album, Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action. Packing crunchy hooks and a disco-indebted strut, the revitalized foursome turned in a crisp performance worthy of their current left-field comeback.
