"Catch you on the first of the new five..."

The band formerly known as Atomic Finger

About us

“What’s in a name?”

The band formerly known as “Atomic Finger” changed their name towards the latter years of their existence to “Five Long Days”. Though locally they will always answer to being “Atomic Finger” it is the new moniker that the band prefer.

“Five Long Days” is a lyric from a Wildhearts song and eludes to the working week seemingly lasting for ages with the sweet release of the weekend.

Where can I hear the music?

“Youth of Today”

The band’s first EP demo CD was professionally produced and duplicated with full colour sleeve and printed image on CD.

We still have a number of these which can be purchased from the merch section of our site.

Demos 2 – 4

The follow up demo CDs by the band were made by the band burning the CDs and printing the sleeves. As a result there are no remaining physical copies of these and no plans to produce more.

However, we do have MP3’s of the songs on SoundCloud.

Bonus Material??

There are a few of the band’s songs that never made it to the studio. If we have enough interest maybe we could take care of some unfinished business.

There is also a digital version of our only London gig which could find its way to being shared…

Liking the new Eddie Vedder solo album at the moment. Reef‘s latest tune sounds like they’re still on great form. And of course Mastodon always nearby.


Just re-discovered Headswim from the 90’s, criminally under-rated band. Liam Gallagher‘s collaboration with Dave Grohl is worth a listen too.
