Much thanks to Garry (GSD)

1992-Jan  Select  Peace Talks Collapse: Fall, Lush and Farm in 1991 Debate Deadlock

Miki on Twitter, Jan 26, 2018:

"Select magazine feature. The premise: 3 gobshites, free booze, let the fireworks commence. The event: Mark E and Peter Hooton trading increasingly heated insults to the exclusion of all other conversation. The end: blind drunk at the Sherlock Holmes hotel."

1993-Nov  We Love Lush Fan Club Mailing

A surprise mailing sent by the band (Lush Information Service) while they were recording Split. This stapled booklet includes a letter to fans full of great info AND an amazing "Lush family tree" of the band's lineage (done by Phil King) AND hand-written lyrics for all their songs to date (with some errors).

The mailing also contained a flexi-disk with "Rupert the Bear" and a demo version of "Lit Up" AND a holiday postcard.

All this was sent to fans for free.

Electronic version of the
above hand-written letter
