The Lovely Eggs live at Actress & Bishop

May 3, 2017 in News

The Lovely Eggs are an underground surreal-psych punk rock duo from northern England. They have a fierce ethos that music should have no rules. For Holly and David 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 8/10 thumbs up from the NME and much support from BBC 6 Music and Radio One the band continues to sell out gigs across the UK without the help of management, booking agent or record label support. With six BBC 6 Music sessions under their belt, as well as sessions for Radio One and XFM, The Lovely Eggs have enjoyed huge support from BBC 6 Music with airplay from DJs Marc RileySteve LamacqLauren LaverneChris HawkinsGideon CoeShaun Keavney and Radcliffe and Maconie.

Their songs have been produced by Gruff Rhys (Super Furry Animals), remixed by Tjinder Singh (Cornershop) and sampled by Zane Lowe for Scroobius Pip. With releases in the UK, Europe, USA and Japan, The Lovely Eggs have played hundreds of gigs around the UK, USA and Europe.

With observational and often surreal lyrics about life The Lovely Eggs have a powerful stripped down sound: one vintage guitar amp, one Big Muff distortion pedal, a guitar and a drum kit. They have produced four albums. The latest This Is Our Nowhere was self-recorded in an abandoned factory in their home town of Lancaster. Its title sums up their celebration and love of a scene which doesn’t exist in the eyes of the manufactured mainstream. The Lovely Eggs are one of the most exciting, innovative and genuine bands on the British underground music scene. Welcome to their world.

March 11, 2015 in News

Oddball D.I.Y punk rock pair The Lovely Eggs have been selling out venues across the country without the help of management, booking agent or record label support. And true to form they return with their fourth self-produced and self-recorded album This is Our Nowhere a title which sums up their celebration and love of a scene which doesn’t exist in the eyes of the manufactured mainstream.

The Lovely Eggs have been relative outsiders to the music industry since 2006 with their unrelenting touring, single and album releases. But their “f**k it” attitude and DIY punk rock spirit has won the hearts of many fans, gaining them an increasingly loyal live following as well as huge support from DJs at BBC 6 Music, Radio 1 and XFM where they have recorded sessions for all three stations.

This Is Our Nowhere (recorded at a disused factory in their home town of Lancaster) cements their reputation as one of the most exciting, innovative and genuine bands on the Great British Underground scene.

Released on the band’s own label Egg Records on May 4th This Is Our Nowhere brings an essential addition to an already impressive discography, with lead single from the album ‘Magic Onion’ providing a raucous punked up psyche trip of nonsensical perfection.
