Lovely EggsThe Lovely Eggs announce ‘This Is Our Nowhere’ LP, and ‘Magic Onion’ 7″ – watch the promo here…

The Sonny & Cher of oddball punk; The Lovely Eggs have confirmed the title and release date of their fourth self recorded, and self-produced album ‘This Is Our Nowhere’

Released on the band’s own label Egg Records on May 4th (with a special black and white coloured vinyl limited edition release for Record Store Day on April 18th) ‘This Is Our Nowhere’ brings an essential addition to an already impressive discography.

‘This Is Our Nowhere’ (recorded at a disused factory in their home town of Lancaster) cements their reputation as one of the most exciting, innovative and genuine bands on the Great British Underground scene.

Prior to the album they have confirmed the release of the single ‘Magic Onion’ – Released on the Cardiff-based D.I.Y. Flower of Phong label (27th April 2015), in collaboration with artist and video director Casey Raymond (who they met in a dentist’s waiting room), the band made limited edition (500 copies) 7” release on green onion splatter vinyl which is accompanied by a Riso printed handmade book by Casey of psychedelic/ nightmarish proportions that’s guaranteed to peel back yer mind and bring tears to your eyes. B-side to the single sees the Eggs pair up with Sweet Baboo, who accompanies them in an acoustic duet of the song which shows a softer side, but one which is still decidedly pickled!

 

The band will head out on a 10 date UK tour on March 19th before embarking on another set of UK dates at the start of May. You can also listen to the Lovely Eggs in session on Marc Riley’s BBC6 Music show on Tuesday 21st April.

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.
