The Lovely Eggs are happily expressing their homeland of Lancashire through the medium of messy punk rock blare. Goofin’ Around (In Lancashire) is another pair of pub-surrealist party numbers. And get this: in keeping with a deep love of eggs, the band have pressed the single to fried-egg imitating 7” vinyl! Beautiful. Out on their own Egg Records.

In terms of the sounds involved, well, our pottymouthed duo go to an offy, buy an eight pack of Strongbow then go trawling the streets (In Lancashire) looking for a paaaarty. They find one, have a cracking time and write a rip-roaring punk-a-long pop winner to accompany the scenes. This is what they do and do best, and it wins them another 9 stars. This adds up to a highly deserved 16 stars. Yup, I know that's far more than this sites rating parameters allow, but do you really think I give a fu...
