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.

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 jaw-dropping 6th album through Golden Robot Records!
