Neon Leaves biography
NEON LEAVES are a four-piece band comprising Trevor BARRAS (drums, percussion, backing vocals), John BOWES (piano, keyboards, guitars, flute, backing vocals), Graham JONES (bass, bass pedals, guitars), and Alan Le PATOUREL (lead vocals, guitars, samples), based in the North East of England. The members were drawn from North East bands "Penny & the Rims" and "Pagan Ritual" both of whom had enjoyed considerable success and rave reviews in local and National Music press in the late 70s and early 80s. After studying music at local colleges however the members wanted to extend themselves musically and formed a new band together.

The band first formed under the name ISHMAEL in the mid 1980's when the original musical ideas for their debut album "Cinéma Vérité" were written. At that time the band played the album live around the North East of England and there were two other members, Peter COLEBY and the late and much lamented Angela FOX.

The bands influences and musical tastes are too numerous to list in full and include many different artistes and genres. From GENESIS, KING CRIMSON and YES, to the STRANGLERS and PERE UBU with (almost) everything in between. The band reformed in 2011 to record the debut album "Cinéma Vérité" (Cat Number SHARPD13062) in their own studio in Crook, County Durham, England. Recording, engineering, mixing and mastering is all carried out in this self-built facility by the band themselves. Finally in 2013 NEON LEAVES were signed to Flicknife Records who will release the current album on all major download sites and via their own online store on 16th Sept 2013.
