Our favourite surreal DIY punk duo The Lovely Eggs are following up on the success of recent album This Is Eggland with the release of new single Big Sea, which can be purchased on surf blue 7″ vinyl.

The track dives deep, exploring the mysteries of the universe, and is a rallying anthem to everyone who wants to live life different.

Stream it below. You can order the single here.

Marvellous northern psych-punk duo The Lovely Eggs have shared another cracking (no pun intended) new single from forthcoming long player This Is Eggland.

Wiggy Giggy takes us on a cosmic odyssey where “normal” life and always “striving for more” meet something more magical! Where the grass is not always greener whatever side you look from.

Of the single, guitarist/vocalist Holly Ross said:  “It is inspired by a book we used to read to our son, about a spaceman who went off exploring other planets but every planet he went to, there was something inhospitable or wrong with it and when he landed back on planet Earth he realised that after all his cosmic travels that Earth was the best place for him to live. It was pretty deep and we really identified with it. We feel the same about Lancaster where we live. It might be a shithole, but it’s OUR shithole and we love it. Not much goes on up here and there’s not much to do so it’s kind of like living in space. But we like being cosmonauts!

Give it a spin.

New Single From The Lovely Eggs

Ah, punked-up, irreverent, fuck-you mavericks The Lovely Eggs are back with a new single. And brilliant it is too.

I Shouldn’t Have Said That is two minutes of full-on, vitriolic kraut-punk that will have Lemmy nodding approvingly from upstairs – or probably downstairs.

Anyway, stick it on, turn it up, watch the paint blister.

 

Lovely Eggs

Delighted to have a new single to share from the down-to-earth, but utterly psychotic duo The Lovely Eggs.

Sick of hearing people crowing about how many drugs they’ve done on a night out or at a festival, their retort is a big fuck-you to the pricks with a typically surreal insight into their crazy world.

Appropriately titled Drug Braggin’, it is a brilliant fuzzed up freakout; a mind-melting sludge pot of psych-pop and punked up fury.

Enjoy!

Videos of the Day

An eclectic mix of videos for you this morning – we have the fragile, gossamer folk of Sarah Johns Music Party and their video for Green Bud, and the surreal video made by kids for the anarchic Lovely Eggs track I Collect Snails.

We have the uber cool and trippy video for Bleached’s Dead In Your Head and lastly we have a brilliant amination for the heavy-amped, growling roots rock revival of Lincoln Durham’s Ballad Of A Prodigal Son.
