Lush – Ciao! Best Of Lush (Released 11th December)

£20.99 – x2 Gatefold limited Indies red LP

• Formed in London in 1988 and cantered around childhood friends Emma Anderson and Miki

Berenyi, Lush expertly fused melody and guitars; a sound that was christened ‘shoegaze’ well after they released their first records, a scene they outlived by sharpening their pop sound as they went.

• Coinciding with news of the band’s upcoming reformation, ‘Ciao! Best Of Lush’ is finally being pressed on vinyl, previously having only been released as a CD back in 2001.

• Unusually for a greatest hits compilation it runs in reverse order, starting with four tracks that appeared on their third album, ‘Lovelife’ (1996), five (six if you include a B-side) from their second ‘Split’ (1994), then four from their debut ‘Spooky’ (1992) before finishing with four early works which includes two from their first ever release, 1989’s mini-album ‘Scar’.

• ‘Ciao! Best Of Lush’ is pressed on red double vinyl. The record’s artwork has been reformatted to now become a gatefold LP and includes the original sleeve notes as written by Dominic Wills.
