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 observations, a relentless analysis of a modern culture that is bringing the world to its knees. I am Moron is the follow up to their critically acclaimed 2017 album 'This is Eggland'. It is their second album co-produced and mixed by Dave Fridmann (The Flaming Lips, MGMT, Tame Impala) and continues their journey through Eggland into the unknown. 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. Operating out of their hometown of Lancaster they are lonely pioneers and self confessed kings of idiocy. Working in an industry whose currency is money, success and nepotism, TLE want none of it. They call out everything fake and plastic about the music industry and demand you to re-evaluate on their terms. They’re undoubtedly the most real band in Britain, operating in a world when true authenticity is hard to find. They have also spent more time on hold to the Working Tax credit hotline than any other band on the planet.

I Am Moron was self recorded by the band in Lancaster (“The Twin Peaks of Northern England”) between Lancaster Musicians Co-op and their home. During the recording, Lancaster Musicians Co-op was threatened with closure so the band put their album on hold to fight the eviction. Continuing the heaviness of 'This is Eggland',  I am Moron brings more depth to their sound bringing with it a mix of heavy psych, pop and strangeness. Some songs flicker between an earthly realism and the otherworldly loneliness of a one way space mission. While in contrast, 'Insect Repellent' launches a gonzo-style attack against the middle classes and 'Bearpit' questions the essence of working class freedom. With no booking agent, manager, record label or publisher TLE are truly independent, and support for them is snowballing. They are selling out bigger and bigger venues and more eggheads are joining them in their crusade against bullshit. TLE say it how it is. They’ve never been afraid to swim against the current and now they’ve got an army of fans behind them.
