The Lovely Eggs new single I, Moron ft Iggy Pop

The Lovely Eggs today release their new single ‘I, Moron’ which features none other than Iggy Pop providing guest vocals!

The husband and wife duo could not believe it when Iggy Pop agreed to collaborate with them. Recording the single ‘I Moron’ with him is right at the top of their weird experiences list. Being the consummate professional, Iggy Just understood what they wanted and nailed it.

Holly said of the experience “It’s actually unbelievable. For him just to say nothing but “moron” over and over again fitted in with the sentiment of the song perfectly. He just got it. We are all morons. In a world of moronic things. In a world of moronic ideas. You are moron. I am moron. We are moron.”

To promote the release the band employed the talents of Sean McAnulty; “We’ve made a couple of claymation videos ourselves before,” continues Holly. “But this time we roped in the amazing Sean McAnulty whose work we’ve admired for ages. He takes you on a weird journey into the moronic underworld, populated by monsters, robots, us and Iggy Pop.

The single is backed with their version of Iggy Pop’s ‘Dum Dum Boys’ and is pressed on yellow vinyl, housed in an eye-popping sleeve designed by regular collaborator Casey Raymond. Despite increasing the pressing run all physical copies sold out on advance order.

The single follows on from the band’s number one independent selling album “I am Moron” released in 2020. ‘I am Moron’ was declared “Album of The Day” by BBC6 Music and received critical acclaim from the national press. The Sunday Times called it “a triumph”, ★★★★ “I am Moron is much cleverer than it would have you believe” – The Telegraph, ★★★★, whilst Louder Than War declared it Album of The Year 2020 (2020 List) following on from an enthusiastic review (LTW Review)

Phil Newall is 47, from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.
