Come Forth, o little Black Eggs
and move from the shallows and venture fourth into the deep . . .
Skillet-beatin', crust-raisin', Egg-fryin' ROCK AND ROLL. What better words to describe these little Black Eggs. No pretensions, no cheap gimmicks, just bone-shaking, shell-breaking in-your-face rock and roll. Their lyrics provoke you and stimulate long-forgotten memories of Waffle Houses and getting beat to a pulp by school bullies. We are hatched. It is time to stand up and be counted.
The Black Eggs are more than just a band. They are a philosophy. Just as
early religions were man's first intellectual stabs at seeking eternal
truths, the Black Eggs respresent a newfound consciousness of the mind, a
consciousness of things and senses and shapes. The Black Eggs recognize
that having a good time boils down to looking sharp, shaggin' the birds,
and ROCK AND ROLL. We invite you to come and be a part of the immediate
gratification, the blood rush, the all-enveloping hot friction and
sizzling passion of the Black Eggs.
The Eggs are not just a "Gainesville band." This is their philosophy...the Black Eggs are lovers, not fighters, but will hold their ground if challenged. Rock over London, rock on Chicago.
-Tom Walls, one of the four spokesmen of the Black Eggs
Out of the frying pan and into the fi-yah! The Black Eggs were hatched in the Fall of 1998. The name is derived from the song "Little Black Egg," a hit for Daytona Beach's Nightcrawlers that was popular with garage bands of the day. The members of the Black Eggs draw upon experience in other Gainesville bands, like the Jeffersons, the Vibe Merchants, Hey! Sasquatch, the Claude Pepper Blues Explosion and the Dedicated Followers of Fashion.
We done played Mike and Bob's house on 5th Ave & 17th in the Student Ghetto May 22 with some other clowns. Check back for future show details!
Friday, June 25 Erin & Karma's house party - 2513 NW 6th St. across from IBEW, where you can park. It's Karma's 23rd! So bring a present! BYOB!
The band practices at a secret trailer on the southeastern outskirts of Gainesville. Entry is gained by a road lined by a dilapidated fence similar to the one leading to the Batcave! We don't get many complaints, except for the occasional load of No. 10 birdshot that peppers the outside of the trailer. Well, Scott's stereo doesn't record externally. The boom box didn't work either. Sir Ted recently brought an ancient elementary school reel to reel player to practice with some 25 year old tape reels. It didn't work, but it did play the old Roy Orbison reel. I attempted resurrecting a crusty boom box from the trunk of my car, only to record a few fleeting seconds of us trying to figure out the Pandoras' "In and Out." After our little hiatus in February and March we finally got some practice tapes for anyone that wants to hear us; we should prob'ly edit out the between-song banter, gossip and putdowns first.
