Top, the band is currently on a three-month U.S. tour. It is also the first English country group to land in the American Top 10 Country charts.

The band's big-label debut, "Scars From Falling Down," features angst, turmoil and high-energy madness.
- SACRAMENTO'S DEFTONES have won a following in the skate/hardcore crowd over the past four years. Their latest album "Adrenaline" is scheduled for release in October.
So in lieu of the album's unleashing, the four-man band will play one night at the Cinema Bar, Sunday, Aug. 27. Doors open at 7 p.m.
- ANGRY SOUTHERN GENTLEMAN TERRELL will appear at the Zephyr Club, 301 S. West Temple, Tuesday, Aug. 29. Doors open at 7 p.m.
Terrell - though based in Los Angeles - combines his wry humor, mild southwind drawl and sultry groove to create a sound not unlike Pete Droge leaning toward Dixie. Terrell's debut album is called "Angry Southern Gentleman."
