Northern England’s psych-punk duo The Lovely Eggs has shared a video for their single, Wiggy Giggy – leading up to next week’s release of their new, Dave Fridmann (Flaming Lips/Mercury Rev/Tame Impala) produced album, ‘This Is Eggland’. Wiggy Giggy has been a regular on the British airwaves this month receiving a tremendous response from the BBC while Uncut called the album, “exhilarating and trashy,” while Q praised the tracks I’m With You as “sounding like bolshier Breeders,” and Big Sea, “like Hole with sharper teeth.” Take a listen to Wiggy Giggy via YouTube below.
The Lovely Eggs are currently in the midst of a sold-out UK tour and have announced more spring time dates starting April 29 in Manchester and their biggest London show to day, October 28 at the Scala (see below).
The Lovely Eggs are one of the most unique, innovative and genuine bands on the British Underground music scene. Heavier and more in-your-face than anything they’ve done previously, married couple Ross and David Blackwell (drums) bring together a fierce DIY ethos, surreal sense of humour and kitchen-sink realism. Working with a producer for the first time, Fridmann lends his magic dust to bring out the best of The Lovely Eggs’ explosive blend of motoric krautrock, 60s psychedelia and punk rock attitude, all flipped over and egged up.
