Lovely Eggs tour dates

The Lovely Eggs reschedule UK dates for the 7th time!

Lancaster’s finest and Louder Than War favourites The Lovely Eggs do not give up. Ever.

The fiercely independent husband and wife duo of Holly and David have now, since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, rescheduled their tour originally intended to promote the release of the LTW 2020 Album of The Year ‘I Am Moron’ (LTW Review), a staggering seven times. And yet again, with the delays in the lifting of restrictions this week, The Lovely Eggs have once had to reschedule the gigs they had set to start in early July – after a supreme effort they have successfully pushed the dates back by a couple of weeks to meet the new restrictions (fingers crossed!)

It’s part of the DIY culture” explains singer/guitarist Holly Ross. “You just don’t give up. So as soon as we found out that re-opening had been pushed back, we set about heaving all our tour dates back into late July/August. We didn’t want to wait till next year. And within 24 hours we’d re-booked our UK tour for the seventh time! We are all just ready for the party now. Everyone has been looking forward to these shows for over a year and we can’t wait to bring it to em!

In addition, on the 9th July the band will also be bringing “to em” new single I, Moron which features guest vocals from none other than Iggy Pop! Holly described the collaboration with Iggy as “Being in The Lovely Eggs we’re kind of used to surreal experiences but collaborating with Iggy Pop takes the biscuit,” exclaims Holly. “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.”

In a further homage to Iggy, the B-side features The Lovely Eggs own take on Dum Dum Boys from Iggy’s defining 1977 album The Idiot.

For the B side it made real sense to us to cover one of Iggy’s songs off “The Idiot”, says drummer David Blackwell. “There seemed to be a real synchronicity to it. I had this album on cassette, and it was one of the first albums that I got really into. Dum Dum Boys struck a chord with us, kind of missing the old days and the old gang we used to hang out with.”

The single has sold out via the bands homepage, however it is available via the likes of Rough Trade, Resident Records, Norman Records etc.

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.
