A lot of people are going to be very, very excited to hear that The Egg are back. The last regular broadcasts from their strange, funky and very lovely corner of the universe were towards the end of the last century, concluding with a tip top performance at Glastonbury 2000. And then nish, nada, full stop. If ever there was a cult band, it’s The Egg, and those of us who followed their antics, their limb-wrigglingly blissful concerts, and their ridiculously contagious ‘Albumen’ and ‘Travelator’ albums were gutted and bemused by the silence…

„James Dean a Elvis Presley were standing in front of me at the the supermarket cash register line. James had a bottle of Sunshine Lemonade in his shopping basket. He turns around and tells me that one day I will be as famous as him.“ That is the answer the Sunshine singer and guitarist Kay managed to slip into the czechcore.cz interview, pretending it is his dream from childhood. It was back in 2001, when the hardcore trio from Tábor with sweet name Sunshine has been on the scene for seven years. By that time the band released three albums, toured America twice and Europe once, was friends with At The Drive-In or ...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead, but still remained on the Indie level.
