Hounds

There's a ton of bands called hounds but this one in particular was from SATX and was just some punkish guys playing slowish stuff on the fly with no point or purpose other than to waste some time. There is also a UK based band called Hounds from Essex, they are recently formed and play a mixture of rock with dance like beats and big hooks. The band can usually be distinguished from other bands of the same name on last.fm by the addition of 'UK' after track names etc. Hounds is also a hardcore band from Grand Rapids, Michigan.
