Lush Discography 1989-2001

This website is an archive of the history of Lush up to the September 2015 reunion announcement. For information on the 4AD re-issues and the new EP released by the band as part of the 2016 reunion, see the Reunion page.
This Discography is a good overview of the Lush catalog, grouped/organized in several different ways, for those new to the band. Only official releases are included -- original Lush records released by 4AD and affiliates, for sale to the general public in various countries. It combines information from many sources (see the credits below) such as recording and release dates, catalog numbers, run-out groves, track times, full liner notes, credits and cover art.

In the years since this website was launched, the Lush page on Discogs (a community-built database) has grown into a much more comprehensive listing of Lush-related releases than what is found here, especially for compilations and remixes. Still, no one place includes all of the information assembled here.


An Overview of the Lush Catalogue


1990 Gala is considered their first album, but it is technically a compilation of every track from the mini-LP and 2 EPs that preceded it (Scar, Mad Love and Sweetness & Light) plus 2 new tracks. It was done for the US market (where the EPs were only available on import), followed by a limited edition release in the UK.
1992 Spooky was preceded by 2 EPs (UK-Black Spring, US-Nothing Natural and For Love) and followed by 1 EP (Superblast!, in Japan only).
After Gala, all EPs are “singles” featuring one track from the associated LP plus several “B-side” tracks that do not appear on the LP. The B-Sides include additional new Lush songs, remixes, alternate versions, and covers. Lush's B-Sides are considered by many fans to be at least as good as the songs on the actual LPs.
1994 Split was preceded by 2 EPs (Hypocrite and Desire Lines).
1996 Lovelife was preceded by 2 EPs (Single Girl and Ladykillers) and followed by 1 EP (500). Each Lovelife EP was released in 3 different versions (2 versions on both CD and 12' vinyl, and 1 version on 7" vinyl) all with the same featured “single” but each with different B-sides.


1994 Cookie is a mini-LP with all 6 of the B-sides from the 2 Split EPs. (Japan only).
1996 Topolino is an LP of B-sides from the 3 Lovelife EPs. (9 tracks in Japan, 12 or 13 in Canada).
2001 Ciao! is a “best-of” LP containing 17 tracks from the four albums and one B-side track, released several years after Lush disbanded.

According to the Eyesore database, there were two versions of the Canadian Topolino CD, with very different track listings (both are shown here) but with the same catalog number. However I suspect that only one Canadian version really exists (shown as "version 2" here), for the following reasons:


1) Eyesore incorrectly claims that the version of Dear Me on the Canadian Topolino "version 1" is a different recording, but Miki Berenyi has confirmed that the only version of Dear Me in existence is her portastudio home demo, which originally appeared on the Ladykillers single.

2) I don't know of anyone who has ever seen a copy of Version 1 of the Canadian Topolino

This discography does not yet include releases from the following categories:

  • Commercial compilations

  • Record company promos for radio stations, the press, etc.

  • Unauthorized commercial bootlegs, usually of live performances (I consider these reprehensible but will include them for completeness)

  • Guest appearances on other artist's albums

  • Film Soundtracks and soundtrack CDs, TV ads, etc.

Most (but not all) of the Lush songs found on such releases are identical to the songs on the official Lush albums and singles. I hope to add all the releases from the above categories to this discography in the distant future, but its a huge task. For now, here are some releases containing unique tracks not found on any of the official Lush albums/singles. The following releases include:

  • Original Lush songs
  • Covers
  • Alternate versions (i.e. acoustic)
  • Demos (i.e. home recordings)
  • Remixes (done by various DJs)
  • Alternate edits (i.e. shorter)

Discography Notes:

  • Each of the four albums is grouped here with its related EP and mini-LP releases using the same background color. The first chronological appearance of tracks that are not on any of the four main albums is marked in color: original Lush songs in red, covers and re-mixes in purple. So, to acquire every officially released Lush song you would need to get the four albums plus all the tracks marked in color. A good way to acquire many of those tracks is to get the Japanese Cookie and Canadian Topolino CDs.
  • All releases are on 4AD (UK) unless otherwise specified. Reprise (Warner Bros. Records) was the US label, PolyGram in Canada. For other labels, the country is indicted.
  • All songs written by Emma Anderson and/or Miki Berenyi (two amazing songwriters in one band) unless otherwise indicated. See the Lyrics page for details on authorship.
