Pocketbook of Lightning

The purpose of a glove is to have a hand inside, but it can also be used to hold peanuts. Peanuts need to be held in something. A glove can hold peanuts. But a glove and peanuts were not made for each other.
This is, more or less, how Jonathan Safran Foer explains the title of his book "The Unabridged Pocketbook of Lightning", then saying that the content of the book has nothing to do with its title. More, he says, even before his book, this was the title of a poem of one of his friends.
"Pocketbook of Lightning", the duo of Nuno Rebelo + Marco franco, has nothing to do with this, except for the fact that's where they picked the name for their duo. Nevertheless, in this case, there's something about this name that reflects somehow the music of the duo. It fits them like a glove.
Nuno Rebelo - electric guitar + amplified objects
Marco Franco - drums + analog electronics
