Led by original vocalist, Peter French (also of Atomic Rooster fame), Leaf Hound was a product of the SW London rock scene of the late '60s which spawned the likes of Free and other blues-rock acts, and their 1971 Growers of Mushroom album has achieved massive cult status and has exchanged hands for a massive £11,000! It was voted the 'Number One most collectible album in Q Magazine. After Leaf Hound re-formed in 2004 the band re-issued the Growers of Mushroom album and recorded a new album, Unleashed. Leaf Hound's Live in Japan CD/DVD and Vinyl was released 6 years ago. Repertoire Records will shortly be releasing a double CD of Growers of Mushroom and Unleashed, followed by vinyls of both.
Peter's reputation as a potent lead vocalist also led him to a stint with Carmine Arpice's US band, Cactus. Later in the '70s he served as frontman for the popular German act, Randy Pie before recording his acclaimed solo album, Ducks in Flight which featured Brian Robertson, Micky Moody and Kenney Jones. This album has recently been re-released by Repertoire.
Peter French's vocals on Leaf Hound's song Freelance Fiend was the soundtrack to the Casio G-Shock Watches advert on cinemas worldwide, and his song, Too Many Rock n Roll Times, is featured in the Hollywood movie, Adolescence. Peter's voice was also featured on the theme song from TV's Life on Mars. £13 (£11 Members). Doors 7:45pm. Music from 8:30pm
