Another inimitable Lovely Eggs handmade release. This time a picture disc special! 1000 copies only.Designed by Casey Raymond. Following on from their 2018 RSD release of "This is Eggland" on giant fried egg vinyl which sold out instantly, The Lovely Eggs return with another unique creation for RSD 2020! Cooking up another special release with collaborator Casey Raymond the band will release a very special edition of their new album "I am Moron" on special collectible picture disc."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 The Lovely Eggs are lonely pioneers and self confessed kings of idiocy.Working in an industry whose currency is money, success and nepotism, The Lovely Eggs 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. While the band were writing the album 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.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 The Lovely Eggs 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.The Lovely Eggs 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.Don't miss out on the most collectible record of the year! Tracks: 1.Long Stem Carnations 2.You Can Go Now 3.This Decision 4.You've Got The Ball 5.Bear Pit 6.I Wanna 7.24 Eyes 8.The Mothership 9.Insect Repellent 10.The Digital Hair 11.Still Second Rate 12.New Dawn
