- Girl On A Bus Leadfinger 3:43
Leadfinger has today released their new single titled ‘Girl On A Bus’ via Golden Robot Records. Harking back to those good old days of twin guitar rock in the likes of The Rolling Stones and even a bit of The Black Crows, Leadfinger finds that personal niche of creativity and originality with a song that is just plain fun to listen to. ‘Girl On A Bus’ meld and mold genres and riffs into their own in a way that changes the song as it progresses. This will make your day. And it will make it good.
The name Leadfinger was originally a nome de plume for the band’s songwriter/guitarist/hero of the oppressed etc, Stewart ‘Leadfinger’ Cunningham.
After first plying his guitar-slinger trade in the late 80’s with Wollongong’s seminal pre-grunge Proton Energy Pills, Cunningham headed to Sydney to play in underground guitar bands – Brother Brick, Asteroid B-612 and Challenger-7 – as well as a stint in Melbourne with The Yes-Men.
After forming Leadfinger in 2006 as a solo project, it morphed into a twin guitar rock n’ roll band that released it’s 5th album, ‘Friday Night Heroes’ in July 2016 and toured Europe in October 2017.
Leadfinger mine the deep seam of rock’n’roll, back through the 70’s rock and punk era’s to the classic Stones and Dylan records of the 60’s and beyond. Their timeless songwriting and heart on sleeve delivery has won them many fans! They have had no hits, won no awards and aren’t on Instagram but they will release their 6th album through Golden Robot Records.
