Housemartin Paul Heaton describes UK as an 'acid country'

Paul Heaton, former lead singer The Housemartins and The Beautiful South, has said the title of his recent album Acid Country was intended to describe "the state of the nation".

The singer also revealed he will be celebrating his 50th birthday next year by repeating a previous cycling tour of the UK, singing in pubs along the way.

Heaton is also due to begin a separate UK tour on Thursday at Concorde 2 in Brighton.
