About this event
Please note: Schnauser replace the previously advertised The Thyme Machine, who have unfortunately cancelled.
This show will be followed by a late gig after 11pm by Mac DeMarco, hosted by No Need To Shout
Lancaster duo David and Holly are the Lovely Eggs. They make short, sharp punk-pop songs with sweet and sour lyrics. The strange song topics range from bikes and snails to digital accordians and watermelons. Holly was previously the lead singer for late-90's girl band Angelica, loved by Steve Lamacq, while The Lovely Eggs have found fans with 6 Music's Marc Riley, Radio 1's Huw Stephens and Art Brut's Eddie Argos. Their 'Don't Look At Me' video became a YouTube sensation thanks to a guest appearance by cult comic character John Shuttleworth, while the single 'Allergies' was produced by Gruff Rhys of the Super Furry Animals, who also made a cameo in the video. 2012 sees the release of their third album; 'Wildlife'.
The Lovely Eggs tour dates
Schnauser play melodic pop-rock awash with unexpected chord changes, harmonies, black humour and odd time signatures. Amongst the normal guitar/bass/drums, their sound palette utilises leslie speakers, 12 string guitar, retro keyboard sounds, fuzz bass, occasional trumpets and strings and melodica.
'Schnauser smear flip pop-cultural analysis over Beach Boys harmonies and the sort of baroque inflections favoured by Todd Rundgren and The Raspberries' - Stewart Lee, The Sunday Times.
