One of the most talked about and sought after albums of the Seventies ‘Growers Of Mushroom’ has been hailed by many critics as a heavy rock classic. Leaf Hound evolved out of blues band Black Cat Bones. The London based group was put together by vocalist Peter French and guitarist Mick Halls and renamed Leaf Hound at the dawn of the progressive rock era. Halls and French produced a mature sound, based on their previous experience with Black Cat Bones. ‘Growers Of Mushroom’ was recorded in a London studio in an eleven hour session. The band’s name and song titles are taken from an anthology of horror stories. Also included amongst the bonus tracks in our re-release is a new track from the current band, ‘Too Many Rock’n’Roll Times’, a taster from the forthcoming album.
Fans have compared ‘Mushroom’ to the early works of Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath.
