Lancaster, England duo The Lovely Eggs has unleashed a video for "Don't Look At Me (I Don't Like It)" from their full-length that dropped this week, Cob Domino.


I first found The Lovely Eggs music in a stack of 1300 songs that I heard before heading to SXSW 2010. When I got to Austin, I scoured the schedule for one of their shows. It was the most fun I had seeing a band in Austin, though The Lovely Eggs are an acquired taste for sure.

For this video and new song, director Darren Andrews leads a campy journey spanning pebbly beaches and grimy beauty parlors. Lead singer Holly Ross bounds around the sugar rushed grunge number, jerking her thumb at all sorts of rapscallions.

Among the wonderful freaks featured, comedian Graham Fellows makes a guest appearance portraying his infamous character John Shuttleworth as "the man with the sausage roll thumb" — do you follow?
