Interview With Lancaster
POUND SHOPS, HIP-HOPS AND THE LOVELY EGGS
Northern psych-punks The Lovely Eggs live in Lancaster, Lancashire. You may recognise them. We’ve had them in before. Their new single (Food) is out in May and encapsulates everything that is exciting about punk rock, douses it in psychedelic freak-out petrol and tosses a raging rag on it. An ode to masticating together, chowing down and gorging ourselves in the most disgraceful manner it’s exactly the sort of lunacy that makes them so compelling, fun and essential.
Lancaster is in Lancashire and The Lovely Eggs live there. A cursory glance at a map tells me that the River Lune runs through Lancaster (which may be where the duo get their lunacy from). I don’t really know anything else about it. There might be a castle. There may be some army stuff. I’m sure it’s probably either compelling, fun or essential in it’s own special way too.
The Lovely Eggs take the mundane and twist it on its head, finding something to shout about in the ordinary. Listen to this free download of Don’t Look At Me (I Don’t Like It) – and check out the video below. I’m sure we’ll both agree, that’s some crazy shit right there. For this reason they seemed the perfect choice to put together a photographic review of the town they live in for us and help fill our Northern knowledge gaps with some edutaining pixelage. Be sure to click on the quotes for further elaboration. Do look at them (they do like it really).
