Fronted by original vocalist Paul French, Leaf Hound are a rock band from south-west London.

And the rockers, whose 1971 album Growers of Mushroom achieved cult status on the scene, perform at the Eel Pie Club in Twickenham next month.

French’s reputation as a lead singer led him to stints as frontman for Atomic Rooster and Carmine Appice’s US band, Cactus.

In the 1970s he served as frontman for popular German act Randy Pie, before recording his acclaimed solo album Ducks in Flight which featured Brian Robertson, Micky Moody and Kenney Jones. He reformed Leaf Hound in 2004 and looks set to give the Twickenham punters a night to remember.
