The oddball D.I.Y punk rock pair have been selling out venues across the country without the help of management, booking agent or record label support. And true to form they return with their ninth self-produced and self-recorded 7" single 'Magic Onion', a raucous punked up psyche trip of nonsensical perfection. Released on the Cardiff-based D.I.Y. Flower of Phong label, in collaboration with artist and video director Casey Raymond (who they met in a dentist's waiting room), the hand made limited edition 7" release on green onion splatter vinyl 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. Magic Onion is the lead single from the Eggs' forthcoming album 'This is Our Nowhere': a title which sums up their celebration and love of a scene which doesn't exist in the eyes of the manufactured mainstream. The Lovely Eggs have been relative outsiders to the music industry since 2006 with their unrelenting touring, single and album releases. But their "fuck it" attitude and DIY punk rock spirit has won the hearts of many fans, gaining them an increasingly loyal live following as well as huge support from DJs at BBC 6 Music, Radio One and XFM, where they have recorded sessions for all three stations. 'This Is Our Nowhere' (recorded at a disused factory in their home town of Lancaster) cements their reputation as one of the most exciting and innovative bands on the Great British Underground scene. With songs firmly set in the hum drum of everyday life, The Lovely Eggs turn normality on it's head, squeezing it through their peculiar surreal mincing machine and blending it with fuzzed out guitar and crashing drums. For Holly and David being in a band is a way of life. And they approach it in a unique way laughing in the face of life's absurdities. They are a rallying point for anyone that sees life for what it is. A mess. A wonderful, car crash of experiences, greeting each new chance with a cheeky grin, a sneer and a big fuck you to the pricks. Magic Onion will be released on the Flower of Phong label on April 27th. 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.
