Dictionary Pudding Presents:
THE LOVELY EGGS
*Please note this show has been rescheduled from 16th April. All existing tickets for the original date remain valid and our customers have been contacted via email.*
For the last two years The Lovely Eggs have sat back and watched England and the rest of the planet slowly eat itself. Their new album “I am Moron” is the result of their observations, a relentless analysis of a modern culture that is bringing the world to its knees.
Throughout their 13 year career, The Lovely Eggs have embraced isolation. Both metaphorically and geographically the married couple have chosen to shun the social conventions of normal life and dedicated their band and their life to the pursuit of what feels right.
Operating out of their hometown of Lancaster The Lovely Eggs are lonely pioneers and self confessed kings of idiocy. Working in an industry whose currency is money, success and nepotism, The Lovely Eggs want none of it. They call out everything fake and plastic about the music industry and demand you to re-evaluate on their terms. They’re undoubtedly the most real band in Britain, operating in a world when true authenticity is hard to find. They have also spent more time on hold to the Working Tax credit hotline than any other band on the planet.
“I Am Moron” was self recorded by the band in Lancaster (“The Twin Peaks of Northern England”) between Lancaster Musicians Co-op and their home. During the recording, Lancaster Musicians Co-op was threatened with closure so the band put their album on hold to fight the eviction.
While the band were writing the album they became fascinated by the Mars One program- a global project which aims to establish a permanent human settlement on Mars. Applicants are offered a one way ticket- never to see earth again. This fascinated Holly and David who drew parallels between this mission and their own isolation as a band.
