The Lovely Eggs

Big Sea

    With the country in the grip of Egg Mania surreal DIY punk rockers The Lovely Eggs return with their latest single “Big Sea” released on 7” mind-surfing blue-wave vinyl and will take to the road in May for another bout of UK tour dates. Taken from their newly released and critically acclaimed album This is Eggland ,“Big Sea” explores the mysteries of the universe and is a rallying anthem to everyone who wants to live life different. “It's a pretty deep song really,” said Holly, “It questions the ridiculousness of human ritualistic behaviour and tries to look at what life is all about, the universe and stuff, and the mystery that weaves its way through everything.” 

    STAFF COMMENTS

    Barry says: With their newest LP causing quite the stir both before and during record store day, it's no exaggeration to say that this one will fly out the door. A brilliantly dynamic and essential addition to any collection.

    The Lovely Eggs

    Wildlife

      Their third album 'WILDLIFE. The Eggs returned with an album that encapsulates the isolation of extensive touring and brief time back in their home town Lancaster. The two piece raucous noise pop duo combine their gritty British northern surreal lyrics with thunderous guitars and crashing drums on this their third self-recorded gem. Working alongside Gruff Rhys who produced Allergies and Cornershop's Tjinder Singh who has remixed Food for a special digital download, Wildlife is yet another wonderful and unique album from a band who continue to cement their reputation as one of the most genuinely exciting and essential bands around today. Already lead track Allergies, the first single taken from Wildlife, released on the Too Pure Singles Club, has won the BBC 6 Music Rebel Playlist - with 82% of the public vote and declared winner of Steve Lamacq's 6 Music Round Table as well as Artrocker's single of the month. For The Lovely Eggs being in a band is a way of life. True to this, they live the way they play. Fiercely, constantly in search of the good times. With this their third album in three years The Lovely Eggs explore further into their own world and the bizarreness of reality and invite you to come inside to join the party, strange as it is!

      You won't hear another band like this anywhere between now and the the end of the millenium. The Lovely Eggs are just brilliant!” Huw Stephens, Radio One // “They have the off the wall look that is perfect pop and the cutting stripped down dynamic of a cool art crew in love with underground rock n roll” John Robb  //  The Lovely Eggs re-release their critically acclaimed debut album 'If You Were Fruit'. Originally released in 2009 on Cherryade Records, 'If You Were Fruit' includes the hit tracks 'Have You Ever Heard a Digital Accordion?' and 'I Like Birds (But I Like Other Animals Too)'.

      Lovely Eggs

      Wiggy Giggy

        5,4,3,2,1 BLAST OFF!!!! We have launch of “Wiggy Giggy” - the mind-melting new single from Northern psychedelic punks The Lovely Eggs. Taken from their forthcoming album This Is Eggland and working with legendary Flaming Lips producer Dave Fridmann “Wiggy Giggy” takes us on a cosmic odyssey where “normal” life and always “striving for more” meet something more magical! Where the grass is not always greener whatever side you look from. Holly explains more about the song: “It is inspired by a book we used to read to our son.

        The book was about a spaceman who went off exploring other planets but every planet he went to, there was something inhospitable or wrong with it and when he landed back on planet Earth he realised that after all his cosmic travels that earth was the best place for him to live. It was pretty deep and we really identified with it. We feel the same about Lancaster where we live. It might be a shithole, but it's OUR shithole and we love it. Not much goes on up here and there's not much to do so it's kind of like living in space. But you know, we like being cosmonauts!“ 

        Northern psychedelic punks The Lovely Eggs return with a mind-melting new album. The Lovely Eggs are one of the most unique, innovative and genuine bands on the British Underground music scene. Heavier and more in-your-face than anything they’ve done previously, Holly Ross (guitar/vocals) and David Blackwell (drums) bring together a fierce DIY ethos, surreal sense of humour and kitchen-sink realism. Working with a producer for the very first time, Dave Fridmann (Mercury Rev, The Flaming Lips) lends his magic dust to bring out the best of The Lovely Eggs’ explosive blend of motoric krautrock, 60s psychedelia and punk rock attitude.

        They create their own world and invite us to join them in Eggland. The album title is a cheeky nod to Shane Meadows’ series, This Is England. It is a comment on the current state of modern Britain. The album is about being an outsider and doing things differently, eschewing society’s conventions as they have done. Since having their son in 2013, the pair have taken him on tour with them, racing round the UK with 2 fingers up to conventional family life firmly out of the window. They have also remained in their hometown of Lancaster, despite its cultural and geographical isolation. As Holly explains; “On this album we're saying it's OK to live life differently, we're doing it and you can do it too! “Living up here in Lancaster is kind of mad. It's a bit like the Twin Peaks of Great Britain.” The town has a rich history of the witchcraft, notoriously it was where the Pendle witches were hanged”.

        For the first time ever, the pair worked with a producer on the new album, welcoming in legendary Grammy award winning engineer Dave Fridmann to their world. “We received an email from Dave Fridmann. He had got our answerphone message, listened to our stuff and wanted to work with us. It was just totally bizarre!” The album was self-recorded at Lancaster Musician's Co-op and the Eggs’ own house. Dave Fridmann then produced it remotely. They then went out to Dave's Studio in New York State, for mixing. The result is a gratifyingly rich sounding record, which still retains the raw energy of the band’s sound but harnesses a real power and dynamism. It’s much heavier than anything they’ve done before. As Holly says: “It's pretty relentless. It kind of sounds like a chip shop on fire. We still write about everyday life and the stuff that goes on in our world, it's just the new album is more fierce”. The Lovely Eggs have been nudging towards a heavier sound with their previous album This Is Our Nowhere, which was praised by the NME, who called them; “One of the country's most beloved underground bands.” Having formed in Paris in 2006, they named themselves after a pigeon laid two eggs on an abandoned nest on the windowsill.

        STAFF COMMENTS

        Barry says: Arguably eggs, but undeniably lovely. It's no secret that I really like the Lovely Eggs, but have found my inner appreciation of perfect production has (ridiculously) hampered my enjoyment of this impeccable duo. I can stop being ludicrous now anyway, because 'This Is Eggland' sounds amazing, and every bit as real as their entire, superb canon.
