Biography

London, United Kingdom (1970 – present)

Members of Eggs Over Easy included Austin deLone, Brien Hopkins and Jack O’Hara, who played regularly in 1970 & 71 at the Tally Ho pub in London’s Kentish Town.

US born Harvard dropout DeLone had moved to the U.K in the late 1960’s and Elvis Costello credits Eggs Over Easy as being one of the forerunners of the U.K’s scene of the early 1970’s. Said Costello to a US newspaper reporter of Delone “He would be too modest to say it, but if it hadn’t been for what he did, I don’t think the audience would have been there for what I did,” Costello said. “If that scene hadn’t started, there would probably be no Elvis Costello.”

After leaving the U.K for Northern California they were briefly signed to A&M Records, but failed to break through commercially. According to Brinsley Schwarz’s bandmember Nick Lowe, the band had over 100 songs at their fingertips. Just one-tenth of that catalog appeared on their sole album Good’n’Cheap. Austin Delone continues to play gigs in San Francisco and occasionally with Elvis Costello.
