Arguably the hardest working band in indie, surreal DIY punk rockers The Lovely Eggs are taking to the road again, after a headline show at Indietracks and a packed Far Out Stage at Green Man.
They are set to appear at The Brudenell on 19 October.
Their supports are Leeds art-rockers Mush as well as Manchester feminist post-punks ILL; together with poet and comedian Rob Auton, fresh from a successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe.
This is Eggland , the Eggs latest album, has received great reviews from The Independent’s 4* and The Guardian. Iggy Pop has played a variety of tracks over recent months, saying “I like everything I hear about The Lovely Eggs.
Self released on their own label Egg Records, This is Eggland exceeded expectations. The album CD had to be repressed twice and the vinyl once in the first week alone. All this was achieved without the help of management, booking agent or record label support.
The Lovely Eggs are Holly Ross, guitar and vocals; and David Blackwell on drums, impressively delivering a surreal sense of humour and what has been called an explosive blend of motoric krautrock, 60s psychedelia and punk rock attitude.
This is Eggland achieved “Album of the Day” from BBC Radio 6 Music who also added their single “Wiggy Giggy” to the BBC 6 Music playlist. Steve Lamacq stated, “I can’t get enough of this record at the moment,”
