Heavy Leef (aka David Noel) is a songwriter/musician best known as front man of the psych space rock group, Plastic Overlords, and the now defunct electro group, I Almost Saw GOD in the Metro. An early DIY basement taper, Noel wrote and recorded his first single at 19, quickly amassing hundreds of songs and albums that largely remained unreleased. Noel is known for his unique blending of space rock, British glam, art rock and new wave.
In the early 1980s, a teenage David Noel saw an ad claiming that if the Beatles could create Sgt. Pepper on a simple 4-track recorder, anybody could. Believing this hook, line, and sinker, Noel purchased a Fostex 4-track tape recorder and started producing his own primitive recordings.
