Any love for Lush on here The news that they are reforming and playing live next year is old hat, but just announced today:

Yep Im going to the first night @ The Roundhouse. Only saw them once back in the day. Really good band in my opinion, very unfairly lumped in with britpop (although third album does dance very close to this genre) First two albums are sublime

I see they've decided to call it a day - not surprising after the bass player quit last month, I guess. I thought the Blind Spot EP was great and was looking forward to hear a new long player. Shame. Last gig is the Manchester one next week.

Interesting interview with Miki from Lush (and now Piroshka) about why Lush initially split up and then why they split up again. I didn't release they were going to call it a day before Chris Acland comitted suicide (well, Emma annouced she was quitting). Bit of a bitter sweet read really:

I know exactly why they split, haven't read the article yet, so will dive in now, if its come from Miki then it will be a watered down version with lots missed out.
Incidentally I caught Piroshka in Manchester a little while back, musically excellent but the songs were a bit bland and I got a bit bored if I'm honest

Well in fairness having read that she touches upon why they split up the 2nd time, there is bit more to it than whats on paper but its true what she says.
That said that really is an excellent piece, superbly crafted and a good read, I always enjoyed her lyrics, she does write well.
Maybe I give the Piroshka album a listen properly and see what I make of it

re: Piroshka album. I agree with you. I've probably listened to it twice all the way through, thought it was was a bit bland, and any other attempts to listen as lead me to fast forward, skip tracks and eventually putting something else on. I guess I'm more of an Emma fan - I thought the two Sing Sing albums were great. By the sounds of it Emma wrote all four tracks on the EP they released when they reformed (Out of Control is classic Lush - really good). As well as the money side of things it sounds like Miki had nothing - in terms of writing music - to bring to the table when they were thinking about recording a new album. Ah well, maybe Emma will start a new band one day.....

https://planetradio.co.uk/podcasts/q-ma ... ten/15832/ I think most of it is covered in this podcast interview with Miki, some interesting stuff, not only in this episode but others as well, pretty decent listen I thought

Yes that's pretty much the version I was told by a credible source, I think the lack of disclosing said conviction on the Visa application was the initial problem, hence cancelled gigs etc

Seems like they turned on her after they weren't concerned about disclosing her dui, then suddenly changed their minds when money was involved, sad... So this is why Phil didn't play the last gig. Shame. As much as I love ride and slowdive I think their comeback shows were a little better of the 3
