Matt says: Transmusicales in Rennes was a big breakthrough for The Forest Hill Billies in France, which led to many more tours in the 80s. A Year later we played Printemps de Bourges, replacing James Brown who couldn’t make it, so we were lucky enough to play between The Pogues and Johnny Clegg. We had a coachload of fans from London in the audience, which also included Serge Gainsburgh and Shane McGowan. I think everyone was more than happy!”
