French critics panned Houndmouth

Houndmouth didn't go down well in France

Houndmouth star Matt Myers has said the band's London shows were great - but they didn't go down quite so well in France.

The country rock band from Louisville, Kentucky and New Albany, Indiana played in the UK earlier this year.

Matt said: "London is the best place to play, apart from our hometown. A lot of people in London hadn't heard of us, but we went on and played and people seemed to love it.

"The shows in France didn't go very well, I don't know what it was. I read one review that said we had a really weird stage presence. You win some, you lose some, I guess."

The band, also consisting of Katie Toupin, Zak Appleby and Shane Cody, released their debut album From The Hills Below The City in June.

:: Houndmouth tour the UK from September 1. For more information, go to www.houndmouth.com.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

It's time to take charge of your finances. You can't relax unless you have some money in the bank. Therefore, you should land a good job that brings a steady income. Don't be afraid to ask for more money than you are initially offered. A show of courage will pave the way for a good working relationship with your boss. You're tired of giving away your precious talent for a pittance. Stand in your own defence. If you don't, nobody else will.More
