Gala by Lush

I once blagged my way into a Lush gig at the Town & Country Club, Kentish Town. I had been promised a guest list place by someone at 4AD, but when we arrived it was such a huge, unmanageable guest list, the doorman had almost given up on it.

There were two great early singles by Lush: De-Luxe and Sweetness And Light and both feature on this compilation which I stopped listening to long ago.

I saw four people who resembled the group in Ladbroke Grove the day after the concert and laughed to myself "Lush!", only to find on getting closer to them that it was actually the band.

Sweetness And Light probably deserves the occasional spin.
