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 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. While writing I Am Moron 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.
Note: the LP is available on neon yellow vinyl.
