Original Uk release on the 'Parliment' label from 2008.
THE FALLEN LEAVES formed in 2004 by Rob Green (Club Left/Vic Godard’s Subway Sect), and Rob Symmons (founding member original Subway Sect; 1976-78). Rob Symmons’ distinctive discordant, stinging guitar sound was a defining feature of the original Subway Sect, which he formed with best mate Vic Godard. Memorably Subway Sect’s debut gig was at the historic “100 Club Punk Rock Special” in September 1976, where they kicked off the first night, followed by their inspirations the Sex Pistols, and The Clash. Subway Sect was one of the most innovative groups to emerge from the festival. Their first single “Nobody’s Scared” was released in March 1978, but by the time their second single “Ambition” came out (December 1978), Bernie Rhodes (manager for Subway Sect/The Clash) had persuaded the ambitious Godard to sack the rest of the group, despite them playing on such an acclaimed record. “Ambition” went straight to the top of the indie charts, selling 20,000 copies in a week, and staying there for nine weeks. The now-mythical Subway Sect LP recorded in 1978 was never released, the tapes presumably lost forever. The essence of that original Subway Sect sound can still be heard in Symmons’ guitar playing with The Fallen Leaves.
