“SONG FOR EWE”
with HOLLY ROSS & DAVID BLACKWELL of
THE LOVELY EGGS

“SONG FOR EWE” is the feature where artists & music people beloved by VELVET SHEEP choose an obscure song they’ve been listening to that day. Today’s guests are Holly Ross & David Blackwell a.k.a The Lovely Eggs.

They’ve been on these pages before, last year for a fantastic Lucky 7…but since they have a new and super ace track called “Drug Braggin'”, I didn’t need much more excuse to get Lancashire’s answer to The Moldy Peaches crossed with The Wedding Present and the Buzzcocks back on these pages…

here’s that Lucky 7 lest you forgot.

THE LOVELY EGGS – Lucky 7

Here’s “Drug Braggin'” out now (about people who take drugs and think that makes them great)…with some ace artwork from Casey Raymond…

and if that hasn’t taken your breath away, without further ado, it’s over to Holly & David for (the first time a duo has chosen a “song for ewe” btw) for their choice…impeccable taste as always.

“Well we chose this track called “Clowns and Ballerinas” by Negativland. They’re a band we’ve loved for ages and the album this is from (A Big 10-8 Place) is absolute genius. It’s pretty experimental and weird which is right up our street. One of the other tracks on there (Theme from A Big 10-8 Place) is also an absolute gem! 1,2 stoopid! 3, 4 dumb! We LOVE it!”

CHEERS AGAIN TO THE LOVELY EGGS, AND TO LUCY FROM BUT I LIKE YOU PR.
