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.
Hysterical Injury are a sister / brother bass n drums duo coming on like Blondie with Jimmy Chamberlain or Karen O with John Stainer (Battles).
'It's extraordinary how two people can kick up a noise that big and that good with nothing but a bass guitar and a drum kit is beyond me' - Tom Robinson, BBC 6Music.
What Drone Soul bring to the table is sheer bleak nihilism delivered with the drive and intensity of early 1980s post punk, screaming elements of old Bristol bands like Pop Group and the punkier edge of Blurt.
