LEADFINGER have been a mainstay on the underground rock scene since 2006, releasing five previous albums through labels like Citadel Records in Australia and Bang! Records out of Spain. LEADFINGER returned to playing live in 2021 as part of the Golden Robot Records roster. 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 its 5th album, 'Friday Night Heroes' in July 2016 and toured Europe in October 2017.
