2017-Feb-16   Under the Radar   2016 Artist Survey: Miki Berenyi of Lush

Eash year, the magazine sends out the same set of wide-ranging questions to many artists. In typical Miki fashion, her answers are funny, intelligent and honest. Some of her answers talk about the reunion, and in answering one of the more unusual questions Miki reveals something about the reunion that has not appeared anywhere else.

Back in 2007, Under the Radar was the first magazine to interview Miki after 10 years of silence.

This page only includes interviews that address the reunion.
Other interviews published during that time can be found in the Feature Articles 2016-Now section.
