Formed in London in 1988 by childhood friends Emma Anderson and Miki Berenyi, Lush also included Chris Acland on drums and Phil King on bass (originally Steve Rippon who left in 1990), and were widely acknowledged as one of the pioneers of a sound that was to be christened “shoegaze.” The band signed to 4AD in 1989, and went on to release three full-length albums, an early mini-album, and a number of EP’s and singles.
4AD are releasing a vinyl reissue of Lush’s “Best Of,” Ciao! worldwide in November, followed by a limited edition box set titled Chorus, which now has an American release date of January 22nd, 2016.
The box is a five-disc set, comprising the early compilation Gala (1990), the three studio albums Spooky (1992), Split (1994) and Lovelife (1996), and the B-sides collection Topolino (the Canadian version, also 1996), plus all manner of rarities (B-sides, radio sessions, remixes and demos, some previously unreleased). The artwork for the boxset is by Chris Bigg, who, alongside design chief Vaughan Oliver, was responsible for the iconic 4AD covers in the Nineties.
Justin Welch, formerly of Elastica, will be playing drums for the live performances.
