Fanzine for Lush and Sing-Sing.

No spam please, spammers WILL BE BANNED.

One fateful day back in the spring of 1996, I took a shopping trip into London. I went into this touristy gift shop in Oxford Street, near HMV and The Plaza. The song being played was ‘Ciao!’ and the band was Lush.

I vaguely knew who Lush were, as I’d already heard ‘Ladykillers’ on the radio and I’d read somewhere that Jarvis Cocker of Pulp, would be dueting with Miki. Although I’d never heard ‘Ciao!’ before, I new that the song being played, had to be the one I’d read about in the press. I stood there mesmerized and listened to the rest of the album. 

Then last year, Lush got back together and made a wonderful new EP "Blind Spot" and played a series of gigs, their first gigs in 20 years. Although their reunion was short lived and they have since split up again, the shows they played gave many of us the chance to see them play live once again. I never got to see them the first time around, so their reunion finally made that possible, they were quite simply amazing.

Thank you to all those people who've helped me out over the years, there are too many of you to name. Your support is greatly appreciated and I couldn’t have set up, run and maintained this group without you. And of course, thank you to Lush for the music. Yes, I know this group should be called PURPLE VIEWS AND SCENIC GREENS, I got
the name wrong due to a typo which had been posted on numerious Lush lyric websites, sorry about that! Apologies in particular to Emma, for getting her lyric wrong when naming this group, I guess I should have gone with my second choice (for a name) Blackout.

One more thing, this group is moderated for new members. This means, if you're a new member and try to post a message, I or my co-moderator will need to approve it before it becomes visible. We will try and do this, as soon as possible. Hope you enjoy the group.
