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

Technical Notes:
  • Most pages are JPG images that range in size from 500k to 1.5 Meg, so they will take a long time to download unless you have a broadband connection.  The image quality and resolution of these pages varies greatly, from super-high resolution to barely-readable, depending on the source.
  • Individual pages will open in a new window.
  • Internet Explorer 6, 7 & 8 automatically shrink large images to fit the page, often making the text in scanned clippings difficult to read. Click here for directions to turn off the image shrink feature.
  • Internet Explorer 7 & 8 also have a handy "page zoom" feature which makes it easy to adjust the text size in images. IE 6 and Firefox do not have this feature.

This website includes the scanned articles/ads from the following  sources. I owe a debt of gratitude to these people, all of them true Lush fans:
  • Jen G, who's Lush group at Yahoo Groups. (PurpleVeinsScenicGreens, highly recommended for all Lush fans!) includes a very large article collection. (approx. 45% of this site)
  • Jason D, who generously allowed me to scan his entire very large Lush article collection, which he assembled over the years. (approx. 40% of this site)
  • Jen D, who runs the Stratosphere Fanzine on Yahoo Groups, also highly recommended for all Lush fans.
  • Chris S, who actually donated his entire collection to this website.
  • The online-only articles come from various websites, and are credited individually.
  • (Your name could be here!)
