the lovely eggs

Ah, is it really ten years ago, I remember the days when we used to get sent egg sandwiches and hand-drawn Christmas cards through the post whilst joyously pouring and bopping with unbridled affection to whatever latest sonic delight they’d cared to commit to tape via the acutely cool imprints Filthy Little Angels and Cherryade (both now long since sadly gone). Impish schizoid pop pups the lovely eggs this year celebrate a decade of adoring the nations turntables with acutely chaotic n’ crooked often comedic punk psyched bubble groove with a short tour later this month and a selection of specially cobbled together vinyl appearances that’ll see them not only appearing on a specially curated compilation for record store day being cooked up by too pure entitled ‘pay no attention’ but the limited issue of their first three albums ‘if you were fruit’, ‘cob dominos’ and ‘wildlife’ all on makes your eyes wonky coloured vinyl. For those among you who can’t make the raucously surreal hijinks happenings of their select party appearances can don paper hats aplenty and toast said events at leisure whilst swinging your pants to this crooked do it yourself lovely eggs disco…..

Parental guidance warning – features loud sounds, sweary bits, anarchic humour, men in dresses, singing eggs, dandy tunes and in some cases John Shuttleworth.
