The Fallen Leaves, The Mynd Set & The Beatpack at The 12 Bar Club - Exclusive Paul Slattery Photographs

Tomorrow, January 07th, will sadly see the end of my regular visits to the 12 Bar Club, a place I have grown to love dearly over the past few years. I have seen so many great bands and made some great friends there too but due to the scandalous redevelopment of Denmark Street, the owners have to leave the premises by mid-January. This means that tomorrow will be the end of The Fallen Leaves' legendary Minimum R'n'B Club nights at the current location. It's such a shame, especially as December's show was one of the best ever with The Fallen Leaves supported by The Mynd Set and The Beatpack, all three bands were great and the place was packed out. As a little tribute to the 12 Bar we have an exclusive unreleased new song "Motorcycle Girl" from The Fallen Leaves in Episode 17 of Retrosonic Podcast, which also features a track from The Mynd Set's debut album. We previously featured The Beatpack in Episode 16 which is still available to download for free at the iTunes store or at our Soundcloud page. Anyway, here are some exclusive Paul Slattery photos of the show...Thanks to Barnet Mark and the staff at the 12 Bar and good luck with the new premises and also lets hope The Fallen Leaves can sort out a venue for their excellent Club nights. The band have put on these regular nights, offering support slots to a variety of great groups, and often there are four bands for only £6.00, or £5.00 for a flyer. It is really sad to think that another venue will be no more and a chance for bands to play live will be soon gone, so please come along to the 12 Bar in Denmark Street tomorrow and send The Leaves off in the style that they deserve.
