Damaged Bug – “Eggs At Night”

Tom Breihan | January 7, 2014 - 12:58 pm

Bay Area garage-psych greats Thee Oh Sees aren’t breaking up, but they did recently announce a hiatus. Frontman John Dwyer, however, has spent the past decade-plus cranking out music at a furious pace, and he isn’t going to let that hiatus stop him. Dwyer has a new solo project that he’s calling Damaged Bug, and he’ll release an album called Hubba Bubba under that name in just a few weeks. First single “Eggs At Night” sounds absolutely nothing like any incarnation of Thee Oh Sees or even the pre-Oh Sees band the Coachwhips. Instead, it’s amateurish, lo-fi, vaguely gothy synthpop. Listen to the song and check out the album’s tracklist below.
