The (Lady)Killers: Lush Black Sessions


I adore Lush, with their shoegazing tendencies, sassy dual vocals and general ability to rock out. Robin Guthrie produced the album Spooky, and while it doesn't quite reach the emotional heights of the Cocteaus, it's still splendid stuff. Despite this connection, I was actually introduced to Lush in The Big Takeover's interview with Stars, in which the vocalists were compared. (The Delgados were another reference.) While it might not be particularly meaningful lyrically, it sure is pretty!

This Black Session was recorded at Studio 105 in Paris on June 28th, 1994.

Enjoy:

1. Blackout
2. Lit Up
3. For Love
4. The Childcatcher
5. Kiss Chase
6. Lovelife
7. Desire Lines
8. De-luxe
9. Sweetness and Light
10. Hypocrite
11. Sunday Girl
12. Starlust
13. Baby Talk

B(oot)log has some excellent stuff; definitely take a look.

It's been a rough week for bloggers, with rbally's finale and now Aurgasm's legal troubles. If you're inclined, please do leave a comment in either and show some support.

It seems that the World Series that no one's watching is almost over. However, I do look forward to actually seeing the Rangers game tomorrow, at least on television.

Sure thing, all the weird symbols are gone, and things should work out now. Thanks for bringing that to my attention.

I realize it was some months ago that you posted Lush's Black Sessions, but would it be possible for you repost? Or else, let us know where you got these mp3's? As of today (1-7-07), they don't download.

I love your blog. Is there any chance you will repost the Lush Black Sessions. I have been looking all over for a copy and your the only site I could find that has ever offered it.

Thanks,
Larry

Hey, thanks for the kind words, both of you. Unfortunately, I still don't have access to my external hard drive, but I'll find out its status over the weekend. Either way I'll try to get the set again and upload it. Sorry about the inconvenience.
