Lush releasing 8-song live session as part of new issue of ‘Thoughtforms’ fanzine
Lush will release a CD of their eight-song KCRW live session — recorded back in September for Morning Becomes Eclectic — as part of Issue #2 of their official fanzine, Thoughtforms. It’s limited to 1000 numbered copies and is available to pre-order now.
The cover art was made by 4AD/23 Envelope designer Chris Bigg and Marin Masai Anderson, and the issue features exclusive interviews with Emma Anderson, Miki Berenyi, Robin Guthrie (Cocteau Twins), Vaughan Oliver (23 Envelope), Steve Rippon, Jim Friedman and Audrey Riley. There are also previously unseen promotional band photographs; unseen photography for Lush’s record sleeve designs by Jim Friedman; unseen cover designs for Lush’s Blind Spot EP by Chris Bigg and Martin Masai Anderson; and unseen photographs of the band in the studio at KCRW for their live session recorded for Morning Becomes Eclectic.
The band, who reformed last year, had to cancel a few dates when bassist Phil King parted ways with the group. Check out the artwork from Thoughtforms Issue #2, as well as live video from that KCRW session, below.
