We’re delighted to be bringing The Lovely Eggs back to Gorilla – with guest Mark Wynn!

Following the release of their critically acclaimed album This is Our Nowhere last year and their sold-out tour last year, champions of the UK underground scene The Lovely Eggs return to Manchester in October for their biggest headline show to date.

This Is Our Nowhere garnered a 8/10 review in NME and much support from BBC 6 Music, including two sessions for Marc Riley in 2015 alone, who made their most recent single Goofin Around (in Lancashire) one of his top tracks for 2015. The 7-inch was released on limited edition and mega-collectible ‘fried-egg vinyl’ on their own label Egg Records. The song joins the oddball punk rock pair (Holly Ross and David Blackwell) on their screeching, psych-soaked quest to find a house party through the streets of their home town of Lancaster. The single is accompanied by artwork and a video by cult underground artist and baboon keeper Casey Raymond.

The Lovely Eggs continue to cement their reputation as one of the most exciting, innovative and genuine bands of the Great British underground scene and have been selling out venues across the country without the help of management, booking agent or record label support.

With songs firmly set in the hum drum of everyday life, The Lovely Eggs turn normality on its 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.

Tour support comes from York’s Mark Wynn.

This is a 14+ show. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.
