The Lovely Eggs
are back again with another f**cked up, fuzzed out freak out with their brand new single “Drug
. Released on eye-watering psychedelic swirl vinyl on their own label Egg Records, the limited edition 7” sludge pop mind-melter sees the pair (Holly Ross
and David Blackwell
) take on their latest pet hate: drug
Sick of hearing people crowing about how many
drugs they've done on a night out or at a festival, The Lovely Eggs retort with a big fuck-you to the pricks with a typically surreal insight in to their crazy world.
The B-Side “On the Line” is another new song,
which was recorded with an electronic voice unit with a strange disembodied American accent after Holly was diagnosed with a vocal nodule. This brand new material represents yet another twist and
turn in The Lovely Eggs' musical odyssey, cementing their reputation as one of the most exciting, innovative and genuine bands on the UK underground scene.
In keeping with their other recent releases,
“Drug Braggin’” is accompanied by artwork and video by cult underground artist and baboon keeper Casey Raymond. The artwork has been
created so that it seems never ending as it is joined at every corner in a self repeating pattern, keeping the viewer trapped inside The Lovely Eggs self contained world. It shows Holly and David
having a mental meltdown as a result of too much exposure to drug braggin’.
The Lovely Eggs hit the road again this
October/November for a 13-date tour of the UK calling at; Newcastle, Halifax, Hull, Northampton, Oxford, Reading, London, Southampton, Bristol, Derby, Edinburgh, Glasgow as well as Manchester's
Gorilla – to play their biggest headline gig to date.
Lancaster’s The Lovely Eggs have been selling
out venues across the country without the help of management, booking agent or record label support. This year they celebrated their 10th anniversary as a band by reissuing their first three
albums If You Were Fruit, Cob Dominos and Wildlife on limited edition coloured vinyl. Last year saw them release their critically acclaimed 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. Ironically the record received 8/10 in the NME (who declared that they were; “One of the country's most beloved
underground bands”, and had much support from BBC 6 Music.
Following on from the fuzzed-out psych tones of
the singles “Magic Onion” and “Goofin’ Around (In Lancashire)”, “Drug Braggin’” is yet another raucous punked-up psych trip of nonsensical perfection set in the humdrum of everyday life. For
Holly and David being in a band is a way of life. Laughing in the face of life’s absurdities and revelling in the mundane, 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.
