WATCH VIDEO: ‘Goofin’ Around (in Lancashire)’ (Feel Free To Share!)
Directed by Casey Raymond (Sleaford Mods/Leftfield, Cate Le Bon, Charlotte Church, John Grant)
Following the release of their critically acclaimed album This is Our Nowhere last year and their sold-out tour in November, Champions of the UK underground scene The Lovely Eggs hit the road again in April for another round of sensational punk rock gigging. This time they alight in Leeds, Newcastle, Sheffield and Cardiff as well as playing in Cambridge, Chelmsford, Hastings, Brighton, Bath and Leicester, with a very special surprise London venue to be announced soon.
This Is Our Nowhere garnered a 8/10 review in NME and much support from BBC 6 Music, including two sessions for Marc Riley in 2015 alone, who made their most recent single ‘Goofin’ Around (in Lancashire)’ one of his top tracks for 2015. The 7″ was released on limited edition and mega-collectible “fried-egg vinyl” on their own label Egg Records. The song joins the oddball punk rock pair (Holly Ross and David Blackwell) on their screeching, psych-soaked quest to find a house party through the streets of their home town of Lancaster. The single is accompanied by artwork and a video by cult underground artist and baboon keeper Casey Raymond (who recently won a music video award for the Sleaford Mods/Leftfield video for “Head and Shoulders” and has worked with Cate Le Bon, Charlotte Church and John Grant to name a few).
The Lovely Eggs continue to cement their reputation as one of the most exciting, innovative and genuine bands of the Great British Underground scene and have been selling out venues across the country without the help of management, booking agent or record label support.
With songs firmly set in the hum drum of everyday life, The Lovely Eggs turn normality on its head, squeezing it through their peculiar surreal mincing machine and blending it with fuzzed out guitar and crashing drums. For Holly and David being in a band is a way of life. And they approach it in a unique way laughing in the face of life’s absurdities. They are a rallying point for anyone that sees life for what it is. A mess. A wonderful, car crash of experiences, greeting each new chance with a cheeky grin, a sneer and a big fuck you to the pricks.
