Our influences come from the new wave and postpunk of the early eighties. Think of bands like Joy Division, New Order, The Cure. But Leslie Grows is not one of these fashionable post-post-punk bands. We added some influences form postrock, jazz, latin to it. The lead guitar plays the role of a second singer and the singer uses his voice as a third guitar. The lyrics are often improvised.

Our story. Frank and Bart guys from a litlle village in Holland called Harmelen start to make music because there is nothing else to do. They meet Gertjan at high school and start a band. There is something chemical between them. Because there background is so similar they intuitively react to each others ideas. Before they know there are songs.
After distributing demo's in hometowns Utrecht and Amsterdam they are invited at almost all venues there. Now they want to cross borders.
