|Artist Profile||Scrambled Eggs came together as a musical entity in Beirut in 1998, in a city still reeling from the damages of its civil war(s). The band went through different combinations of musicians before settling on its present line-up. In 2002 the group went into the studio for the first time, and delivered its first album in a span of two intensely creative days. 'Human Friendly Noises' is characterized by a spacious, ambient rock mood, and showcases a band still debating its influences, from British alternative and progressive rock to more aggressive strands of American rock and pop. Although this first album had a great influence among the Lebanese rock scene, the group was not entirely satisfied, and went back to the studio to record what eventually became 'No Special Date, Nor A Deity To Venerate'. This second album finds the Eggs hard at work establishing their own, particular musical identity; although some of their influences can still be discerned, the boys have embraced a whole new palette of sounds and created their own distinctive sound on this album, a fine mesh of guitars and noises, pushing to the extreme the search for harmony in chaos. The end of 2004 was characterized by the creation of the band’s own record label, "Those Kids Must Choke", and the release of the Eggs’ third studio album, 'Nevermind Where, Just Drive'. This was by far the band’s most experimental effort yet, seamlessly blending elements of noise and free improvisation. In 2005, Scrambled Eggs went back into the studio, this time to work on the soundtrack of 'A Perfect Day', directed by Lebanese filmmakers Joanna Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige. The finished album included 4 compositions by the band, and received the Best Soundtrack Award at the Festival des Trois Continents in Nantes (France). The group released its fourth album in 2006 as an abrasive reaction to the brutal "July War" that shook Lebanon that year.|
