'Butterfingers' is all about my knack for pulling disaster out of success. Doing things the hard way is my specialty...



Things keep falling through my hands
Diamonds become grains of sand
Butterfingers, butterfingers
I keep waking in-between
From a dream within a dream
Butterfingers, butterfingers

Things keep falling through my hands
But I keep wrecking all my plans

And I keep falling into you
The way that star-crossed lovers do
And you may head towards the light
But I keep fading into night
Butterfingers, butterfingers

Falling through my hands...
It's falling through my hands

Lightning Dept. Brighton, UK

Lightning Dept. was all started by the misreading of a shop sign. Written over a 3 week period and recorded in just 3 days, 'things KEEP blowing UP' is a fresh, icy blast of pop magic. The bands love of Weezer, Lemonheads and Guided By Voices shines through on this 15 track album which is all over in 32 minutes of clipped majestic indie rock.
Look out for the CD and digital release in March 2012.
