Neon Leaves, from County Durham, are a band led by former Penny and The Rims’ John Bowes, a band that had a successful single ‘Jump & Jerk’/’Mad Men’ released on Electro-Beat that earned them a few TV spots (second attachment) and ex-Pagan Ritual, Alan Le Patourel. Pagan Ritual gained a good following with good reviews in both the NME and Sounds. Pagan Ritual were often compared to the Southern Death Cult with bollocks! This leads us to today’s Neon Leaves, formerly known as Ishmael, a band compared to Genesis and King Crimson that has earned rave reviews from Prog Magazine and Progression Magazine. Prog Magazine twice featured a track from their first album ‘Cinema Verité’ on their cover mount CD (attachment #1). ‘Room Full Of Strangers’ is their second album and has already received rave support from Prog Magazine and Progression as well as a favourable mention in Kerrang. More will follow. Their first album was only available in CD format from our own store and we sold out the numbered, limited run of 250.
