Hot on the heels of the haunted soundtrack they’ve created for the
Joreige/Hadjithomas film ‘Je Veux Voir’, Lebanese punk icons Scrambled
Eggs end their busy year with this “modest” 2-song release, which does
however hold a host of surprises.
The year 2008 saw the Eggs part ways with their lead guitarist, Marc
Codsi, a founding member of the band and active contributor to its
sound. The trauma resulting from this breakup, as well as the wealth of
experience gathered from working with various musicians throughout the
year, infiltrate the tracks featured here, and lend them a primal, DIY
quality. The sophistication of the ‘Je Veux Voir’ soundtrack is
eschewed in favor of a raw, abrasive sound, harking back to the punk
aesthetic of the ‘Happy Together Filthy Forever’ EP, released in 2006.
The single was recorded with little budget, in lo-fi conditions that
seep through the music and lyrics. The band, reduced to the core trio
of Haber on guitar and vocals, Elieh on bass, and Rizkallah on drums,
displays a frantic desire to land back on its feet after a period of
artistic self-doubt, and succeeds in doing so admirably. Of the six or
seven songs that the Eggs wrote and tested on the road in September
2008, 2 were selected for this single release, and a third, a furious
cover of Abba’s ‘Lay All Your Love On Me’, is hidden at the far end of
the CD. Also hidden away at the far reaches of this release are a
selection of musical snippets and oddities, selected by band-leader
Charbel Haber with able help from Tunefork Studio’s maestro Fadi
This basic, back-to-the-roots package is a masterful way to end a
difficult year, and an able return to form from one of the most revered
band on Beirut’s alternative music scene.
Scrambled Eggs Live at B018 SCRAMBLED EGGS are back to the stage, and will be performing LIVE at
B018, on DECEMBER 28, to celebrate the release of the band's new
single, DEDICATED TO FOES CELEBRATING FRIENDS.
This is a Special
Edition Single, including two brand new, furious songs by the Eggs, as
well as a generous dose of Bonus Musical Snippets (40 of them!), which
will surely bewilder their audience, and leave them yearning for more...
Warm up Set: Ziad NAWFAL, aka DJ PANIC, playing Indie Pop & Electro-Rock
Opening Live Act: Infamous Lebanese band THE INCOMPETENTS, performing a set of psych-pop lullabies and rowdy anthems...
