Melanie Exploded. Or did she?


Melanie Exploded

Melanie exploded
Her broken heart imploded
But now she's fine
Melanie exploded
Bad memories corroded
But now she's fine, fine, fine...

Funny how those years of pain
Disappear and melt away
I only want whats best for you
And now you're with somebody new

Melanie exploded
Her mind was fast eroding
But now she's fine
Melanie supposes
Her bed is full of roses
And now she's fine, fine, fine

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.
