September 28, 2015, 8:00 am:

We’ve been away for ages and ages, but we’re really excited to announce that we’re finally ready to reform as Lush. For all the fans who have been pestering us to do this: thanks so much for your patience and support! We wish it could have been sooner but, for many years, it was just too painful to contemplate without Chris, and then all kinds of life-changing commitments made it impossible. Now, at last, the three of us are in the right place at the right time to play music together again.

To celebrate our return, 4AD will be putting out a vinyl edition of our ‘best of’ compilation Ciao! (limited copies will be coloured red) and a box set of (very nearly) everything we ever released along with a selection of rarities, sessions and demos. We'll be playing the Roundhouse in London on 6 May 2016 – tickets will go on sale at 9am on 30 September – so you've got plenty of time to regrow your shoey fringe. Chris's old friend from back in the day, Justin Welch (Elastica), will be on drums. There’s more information to come, so please keep in touch…

Lots of love, Miki, Emma and Phil

These photos come from all over the web, so the image quality and resolution ranges from almost useless to super high quality. I merged the photos from many sources and attempted to identify/categorize everything, but there are certain to be some photos that are incorrectly labeled/named, in the wrong category, and/or duplicated. I have not attempted to clean up all the file names, which could be anything from meaningless numbers to detailed descriptions.
The photobook "Lush - The North London Poly Years"
also contains lots of fantastic photos.

Technical Notes:
  • Internet Explorer 6, 7 & 8 automatically shrink large images to fit the page. Click here for help using or disabling the image shrink feature.
  • Internet Explorer 7 & 8 also have a handy "page zoom" feature which makes it easy to enlarge small images to fill the page. IE 6 and Firefox do not have this feature.

I've lost track of where most these photos came from, however the following people deserve special mention:
  • Phil King, who sent me many of his personal behind-the-scenes snapshots.

  • Jason D in Virginia, who allowed me to include high-resolution scans of his many high-quality original Lush photos which he collected over the years.

  • Jen G in England, who's Purple Veins Scenic Greens Lush group on Yahoo includes many Lush photos. More than 100 of the photos here come from her Yahoo group.

  • The Credits page includes many more people who have contributed to this site.


 This website is dedicated to the memory of Chris Acland
