I'm a huge LUSH fan. Without a doubt they are my all time favorite
band. They are from the 90's labled shoegazzer/Britpop. LUSH. Their music makes me think of all
things British-- I've never been there but it evokes images of what I
think the country is like.
There's no other band I can listen to over and over like them , I call
it modern pyschadelia. It was unique to have two girls fronting the
band on guitars and vocals and they did the songwriting with two guys
on bass and drums all good musicians. Miki Berenyi, Emma Anderson,
Chris Acland, Steve Rippon were the original members Rippon was
replaced after the first cd by Phillip King. Miki the lead singer is
Japanese/hungarian and has the british accent sounds like Kiera
Knightly. Got the asian/brit thing going on-- she's amazing to watch
\:D/--I need a time machine :'( They were together from 1988-1996 and
released 4 cds I love all of it. Their sound is at times aggressive
other times light and spacy driven by guitars drenched in echo and fx
but the bass and drumming was great too.
Two from the debut cd "GALA" which could be argued
was the best. One from the 2nd "Spooky" but the 3rd "Split"
and 4th "Lovelife" are just as good some of their
Sweetness and light
-- This song is sooooooo British sounding to me. This vid has Chris the
drummer and Miki the singer off the top. In 1996 Chris
committed suicide ending the band. This is off the debut Cd
from the debut. This would be the signature song the first one I heard
and it was from college radio in Boston I loved it but took forever to
find out who the band was because they played it sparingly. Love the
chorus, the bass moving in opposition to the guitars on the G to A
chords he goes G to F#.
this is from the 2nd cd Spooky mock live video.
