Looking for a party in the city in the 90s when the pub shuts

The Lovely Eggs are back with a new single - giving a playful nod to the 1990s house party scene in Lancaster.

The daft duo are releasing Goofin’ Around (in Lancashire) on the same day as a celebration to mark Lancaster Music Co-Op’s 30th birthday.

The single launch party will be held at The Yorkshire House on Friday November 13.

Holly, from the band she shares with husband David, said: “The song – taken from our new album This is Our Nowhere – is about the house party scene in Lancaster in the 1990s when you would get kicked out of pubs at last orders and go on the hunt round the streets for a party.

“The single will be released on limited edition hand packaged ‘fried egg 7”’ vinyl and the launch party is part of an eight day tour of the UK, which also takes in Manchester, London and Glasgow.

“One hundred per cent of ticket and door sales on the night will go to Lancaster Music Co-op.”

The Lovely Eggs have recorded all of their albums at Lancaster Music Co-op and said they have a lot of love for the place.

This Is Our Nowhere is the Lovely Eggs’ fourth album, following If You Were Fruit, Cob Dominos and Wildlife.

The duo make irregular live appearances on Marc Riley’s weekday evening shows on BBC6 Music.

Holly added: “It was borne out of a love for music and it’s that love that’s kept it going all these years.

“Musicians have become very loyal to the Co-op and as a band we are really proud of the place.

“It’s so great that people in Lancaster have this sort of resource on their doorstep. That’s why there’s so many bands taking part in benefits for the Co-op this year, which is their 30th anniversary.

“It’s why we wanted to do a benefit gig, to show the love we have for the place.”

The Lovely Eggs’ last gig in Lancaster sold out pretty sharpish so it’s recommended you get your tickets soon. They are available via www.wegottickets.com/event/324925.
