The Lovely Eggs’ debut album If You Were Fruit was nominated by XFM for ‘Debut Album of the Year’, while sophomore album Cob Dominos includes the hit single “Don’t Look at Me (I Don’t Like It)”, whose video stars a cameo from cult comedian John Shuttleworth and has become a Youtube smash hit with more than 150,000 views. Their third album Wildlife saw the pair work alongside Gruff Rhys who produced “Allergies” (released on the Too Pure Singles Club and appearing in their Record Store Day 2016 compilation Pay No Attention) and Cornershop‘s Tjinder Singh who remixed “Food” for a special digital download. “Allergies” (the first single taken from Wildlife) won the BBC 6 Music Rebel Playlist – with 82% of the public vote and was declared winner of Steve Lamacq’s 6 Music Round Table as well as Artrocker’s single of the month.
These re-issues are wonderful and unique albums from a band who continue to cement their reputation as one of the most genuinely exciting and essential bands around today.
Their most recent album This is Our Nowhere was released in 2015 and features the singles “Magic Onion” and “Goofin’ Around in Lancashire” with videos directed by award winning filmmaker Casey Raymond.
