"New York’s New Brit Sound Causing a Stir; London Egg"

The group is London Egg. New York dandies with serious attitude come a blazing with their new breed of Brit punk mod rock. A variety of a scene bound to get you on your feet and start dancing, drinking, or fighting. Maybe you’d better hear them first before you read much more. There is something cool happening here. It’s new. It’s old. Call it revisited if you like, but its here with a lot of power and movement. This ain’t your daddy’s square emo music, so forget being sad.

London Egg are Robes “The Lad” London and an energetic guitarist known only as “Egg” giving them their indelible, as well as unforgettable name. And along with Scott, The Kid on drums, they’ve managed to make quite an impression on New York’s mod scene, and maybe soon, the rest of you.

Think Beatles, Byrds, Yardbirds, sometimes Dylan-like with the madchester loudness of ? Fill in the blank. At times I here the Beatles production and energy. And positive, fun, and head banging punch. The vocals are strong with great harmonies. But the real kick is that damn cool drive of the drums, pushing ahead the loud guitars. That drummer is driving all the way to town, with the attitude and power of The Who’s Keith Moon.

London Egg’s songs are strong and quite contagious. Maybe infectious. The standout song is “Turn On The Scene” with its anthemic march through a Dresden bombing raid like mission to get you up on your feet. I’d say the answer that comes back from other scenesters will be very positive. “In The Garden” is very “yellow, orange, and near” –a Byrdsism I’ve borrowed from a back cover.

But however you try to label them, they are fun to hear. Even empowering. Their new CD full length album “In The Beginning…” is well worth the price of flying on your own cloud of cool, away from heathens who won’t get it. Many of us DO get it, though. It was the singer of The Ivy Lines that flat out demanded that I “write a feature article on those cool bastards straight away!” And, “If you knew what was good for you, or knew anything about cool, you’d do it for the sake of promoting something outside the hip-hop crybaby garbage strewn across our airwaves!” Yeah, Patrick, I got it. I was listening anyway like many of us ready for something different. Something cool.

Feeling a bit camera shy


After being hatched in their native NYC, the two brothers spent their early years playing in various rock bands individually and being influenced predominantly by 60's and 70's Classic British Rock (Beatles, The Who, The Stones, Kinks, Bowie amongst others). In 2004, they started writing songs together and found a unique sound emerging that contained musical elements both old and new. This is how they came to create their Mod Rocking, "Brit-York Sound".
