"Welcome to my hangover.."
Miki Berenyi - Bristol, 19/03/96
And with those wise words, you are welcomed to this website. I decided to make it because of the lack of up-to-date info about Lush, and because I had collected a load of stuff and thought I may as well do something useful with it.
Plus, of course, I really like Lush. Really!
You might be wondering who I am (hey, probably not, admittedly, but it's nice to see who and why sometimes). Well, my name is Philip Stewart-Jones, I'm 22, and I am a student in my final (finally!) year at the University of Derby, in the East Midlands of the UK. This accounts for the irregularity of updates - towards the end of last year I was flat out working, and I wouldn't be surprised if that happens again. I am also the co-founder of Curve Communications, a Web Publishing firm.
I've been a Lush fan for a few years, but only buying lots of their music for a couple of years. I've currently got lots of vinyl and CD stuff, and I finally got the 'Black Spring' EP, so my collection is (very close to) complete. Having missed the Split tour by a couple of months, I saw them play live for the first time on the 19th March 1996 in Bristol, for the second time on the 20th in Birmingham, and for the third time on the 17th April in Los Angeles. My fourth Lush experience was the 3rd September, at Pomona. My wish for five gigs before the end of the year never came true.
The 'suck 'em and see' links have moved to their own page. Lucky them!
About copyright: I know that a lot of the stuff on these pages is 'stolen'. However, it's all attributed, and must surely encourage any British visitors to go and buy the mag in question, or watch the TV show in question. The vast majority of visitors to this site are from foreign countries, I'm sure, and therefore have much more trouble getting hold of the interviews or whatever.
That's the way I see it, anyway; if anyone who owns material that is displayed on these pages is unhappy with it, please mail me and I will take your work off the site straight away.
