BRISBANE hip hop outfit BUTTERFINGERS seems to be suffering a bit of an identity crisis.

The four-piece, which started out as a punk rock act before adopting a hip hop flavour, has now revealed another side to its musical persona.

``We've got a whole bunch of unrecorded acoustic guitar ballads,'' guitarist, vocalist and sampler EDDIE JACOBSEN said.

``We'll keep playing hip hop because it's fun but I'm sure those other songs will come out.'' Those familiar with Butterfingers would mainly see it as a hip hop outfit, heavy on lyrical wit and cheeky humour.

Butterfingers' first two independently released singles, Everytime and I Love Work, achieved strong airplay and came in at 38 and 15 respectively on this year's TRIPLE J HOTTEST 100. Not bad for a group that opted to release material through its own VALLEY TRASH RECORDS label rather than sign a deal with a big-name record company.

The latest release on Valley Trash is Butterfingers' second album, Breakfast at Fatboys. Released in May this year, Breakfast At Fatboys was named Album of the Week on TRIPLE J and debuted at number 15 on the ARIA charts.

Butterfingers will arrive at THE BREWERY tonight.

Brisbane funk fusion group NATIONAL PORNOGRAPHIC will support.

Tickets are $8 and are on sale at RAMJET, A1 AUDIO and The Brewery.
