THE LOVELY EGGS

A coup to have The Lovely Eggs on GLS! Both band and label fiercely independent, staunchly creative and, of course, based right here in North West Great Britania! First outing for Hannibal Rex, which I hypothesize is one of the in-house Golden Lion loons on guest cameo. Either that or just a friend of band or label.

Our Lancastrian mavericks contribute a rotating behemoth of spiraling krautpunk that Mark Smith himself would be envious of. Like a rockabilly spinning out of control listening to Can; this 7" rocket blast should have bar stools swinging and tables flailing by the end of its rotation.

The mysterious Hannibal Rex gets totally Todmorden and mixed knackered drum machines, eastern ragas, western guitar and a cloudless state of mind conjuring up from the mighty a hills as technicoloured storm of conspiracy theories and chaos. An unguarded at one the senses that'll make compete sense after foraging around the fields of the record label's basecamp.

An unmissable edition to the GLS catalogue and one that's certain to be feverishly collected by The Lovely Eggs' cult fanbase! Speed is off the essence heathens!

Matt says: Can't get enough of that Lovely Eggs track. I have indeed, got it on repeat! Proper Can / Fall-esque growling repetition that really gets inside your melon. Ace!

    The Lovely Eggs Featuring Iggy Pop

    I Moron - Repress

      The Lovely Eggs will release their brand new single “I, Moron” featuring Iggy Pop on Friday July 9 on Egg Records. The collaboration will be released on ltd edition yellow 7” vinyl with eye watering art-work by illustrator Casey Raymond. Backed by a B Side cover of Iggy Pop’s “Dum Dum Boys” from his 1977 album ‘The Idiot’ and limited to 1200 copies this is one not to be missed!

      “Being in The Lovely Eggs we’re kind of used to surreal experiences but collaborating with Iggy Pop takes the biscuit,” exclaims singer/guitarist Holly Ross. “It’s actually unbelievable. For him just to say nothing but “moron” over and over again fitted in with the sentiment of the song perfectly. He just GOT it. We are all morons. In a world of moronic things. In a world of moronic ideas. You are moron. I am Moron. We are Moron.”

        The Lovely Eggs

        I Am Moron

          It’s a very busy time in Eggland right now. Since the release of their last album ‘This Is Eggland’ in 2017, The Lovely Eggs have sat back and watched the world mutate and slowly eat itself. However, rather than remaining frozen in despair, they have used their relentless analysis of a modern culture that is bringing the world to its knees and poured every bit of inspired anger, contempt and hysterical laughter into new album ‘I am Moron’.

          We got to hear the first results of their observations as 2020 lurched into life from its seasonal slumber, in the seething two-minute-and-fifty-seconds of rage in ‘This Decision’ and its accompanying mind-scrambling video, signaling the return of the Lancaster psych-punk duo. The single reached number #1 in both the physical and vinyl charts and was hammered by DJs at BBC 6 Music including Iggy Pop, Marc Riley, Steve Lamacq, Chris Hawkins, Gideon Coe, Tom Robinson and John Kennedy at Radio X. Not a bad start to their year, at all.

          ‘I am Moron’ is their second album to be co-produced and mixed by Dave Fridmann (The Flaming Lips, MGMT, Tame Impala) and continues their journey through Eggland into the unknown, with artwork by genius artist and video director Casey Raymond, who has the unbridled talent to perfectly visualize The Lovely Eggs sound, spewing Eggland out in a swirling whirlpool of dayglo colours, melting faces and symbols.

          Throughout their 13-year career, The Lovely Eggs have embraced isolation. Both metaphorically and geographically the married couple have chosen to shun the social conventions of normal life and dedicated their band and their life to the pursuit of what feels right.

          Operating out of their hometown of Lancaster, The Lovely Eggs are lonely pioneers and self-confessed kings of idiocy. Working in an industry whose currency is money, success and nepotism, The Lovely Eggs want none of it. They call out everything fake and plastic about the music industry and demand you to re-evaluate on their terms.

          ‘I Am Moron’ was self recorded by the band in Lancaster (“The Twin Peaks of Northern England”) between Lancaster Musicians Co-op and their home. During the recording, Lancaster Musicians Co-op was threatened with closure, so the band put their album on hold to fight the eviction.

          While the band were writing the album, they became fascinated by the Mars One program- a global project which aims to establish a permanent human settlement on Mars. Applicants are offered a one-way ticket- never to see earth again. This fascinated Holly and David who drew parallels between this mission and their own isolation as a band.

          Continuing the heaviness of ‘This is Eggland’. ‘I am Moron’ brings more depth to their sound bringing with it a mix of heavy psych, pop and strangeness. Some songs flicker between an earthly realism and the otherworldly loneliness of a one-way space mission. While in contrast, ‘Insect Repellent’ launches a gonzo-style attack against the middle classes and Bearpit questions the essence of working-class freedom.

          With no booking agent, manager, record label or publisher The Lovely Eggs are truly independent. And this isn’t due to economics. This is by design. From day one. And support for them is snowballing. They are selling out bigger and bigger venues and more eggheads are joining them in their crusade against bullshit.

          Welcome to their world. This Is Eggland!

          STAFF COMMENTS

          Barry says: Even a global pandemic can't stop the infectious punk drive and soaring snarling groove of Lancaster's The Lovely Eggs from taking your worries and smashing them into a thousand pieces, as 'I Am Moron' deftly illustrates. Rawkous, wry politicism, chanting punk-rock ethics and HUGE sounds, defying all the odds with only two people in the band.

          The Lovely Eggs

          Still Second Rate

            “Still Second Rate” is the second single from The Lovely Eggs forthcoming album “I am Moron.” Released on limited edition 7” snot green vinyl and accompanied by mind melting artwork designed by Casey Raymond “Still Second Rate” is the latest instalment in the Lovely Eggs current catalogue of contempt for a modern culture that is bringing the world to its knees. “Still Second Rate” forces you to question the difference between value and worth. It also includes a pretty impressive re-creation by the band of the Working Tax Credit Hotline hold music! It follows on from their single “This Decision” released earlier this year which reached number #1 in both the physical and vinyl charts and was hammered by DJs at BBC 6 Music including Iggy Pop, Marc Riley, Steve Lamacq, Chris Hawkins, Gideon Coe, Tom Robinson and John Kennedy at Radio X.

            For the last two years The Lovely Eggs have sat back and watched England and the rest of the planet slowly eat itself. Their new album “I am Moron” is the result of their observations. Following up from their critically acclaimed 2017 album “This is Eggland”. It is their second album co-produced and mixed by Dave Fridmann (The Flaming Lips, MGMT, Tame Impala) and continues their journey through Eggland into the unknown. Continuing the heaviness of “ This is Eggland” “I am Moron” brings more depth to their sound bringing with it a mix of heavy psych, pop and strangeness.

They are selling out bigger and bigger venues and more eggheads are joining them in their crusade against bullshit. Still Second Rate is a powerful harsh hit at reality. The Lovely Eggs say it how it is. They’ve never been afraid to swim against the current and now they’ve got an army of fans behind them.

            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!
