Sadly, more and more of these sites are
disapearing over time, so many of these links are
broken. I am keeping them here only as a
reminder of what has come and gone. A few
of these links are still up and have lasted many years!
I obtained material from many of the above fan sites
- anything from a single show date to
press articles, fan quotes, lyrics, photos, or an entire
gig list. In fact, the goal of this site was to combine all
the Lush material from all the above sites (which
have a lot of cross-duplication) into one central location. I've tried to credit my sources on the individual
pages throughout this site, unfortunately I sometimes lost
track of what came from where. See the
disclaimer page for details.
Tip: For fan sites that are no longer up, try copying its address
Internet Archive Wayback Machine, an archiving
service which periodically saves copies of
websites. The archive does not include images, and only
includes pages a few levels down the site, but you
still get a sense of what the original site was like.
For a more visual view try
however those are static images of the home page only,
and are not clickable.
For many years--long before this website--these
Yahoo groups were the main (only?) place for long-time
Lush fans to meet and exchange information, and they are
a wonderful archive of past discussions. During the 2016
reunion most of the activity moved to social media, fortunately these groups are becoming active again
after the reunion ended.

The Other Way: The story of 4AD.
