A SONG SORT OF APPLICABLE TO MY LINE OF WORK

Given the title of this song and the fact its about the banality of life in the American civil service, it seems sort of appropriate that Eggs hailed from Washington DC.

mp3 : Eggs – Government Administrator

The four-piece released two albums and five singles between 1992 and 1994. I only know of them from this song being included on a Rough Trade compilation CD a few years back. I’ve managed to track down it’s b-side:-

mp3 : Eggs – Sugar Babe

Two decent enough without being truly outstanding songs.  They’ve not to be confused at all with yesterday’s featured band.

  1. Amazing. Was in John Peels Festive 50 in 93. Great tune. Seek out ‘I Suck’ by New Bad Things from the same Festive 50, if you haven’t done so already.

  2. Heard that tune on Peel/BFBS and was so blown away by it that I wrote to John in order to get the band’s adress. He duly replied, I wrote to the band and they sent me the 7″ as I was unable to get hold of it here in Germany. Mind you, this was 1992 and thus I’m talking about REAL LETTERS, not e-mails! As an exchange I sent them a bottle of local herb liquor, most disgraceful hardcore stuff when you’re not used to it. Nevertheless they enjoyed it, at least so they wrote back to me. Then, some 16 years later, I stumbled over Andrew Beaujon’s mailadress on the internet and wrote to him, y’know, just asking where’s he’s up to these days. and believe it or not: he still remembered that bottle well!
