Lush “For Love”
I remember the first time I heard this song, and subsequently fell in love with Lush. It was 1992 or 1993, my buddy Lance was leaving to ride his bike across the country, so he gave me his Sega Genesis w/ Sega CD system to use while he was gone. Amongst the games he gave me was a music CD sampler. I believe it was a 2 CD set, but I could be mistaken. Anyways, Lush “For Love” was on this sampler, and I remember it being one of the only decent songs included (I think They Might Be Giants were on it too, but again, I could be mistaken). I played this song over and over - at the time, I had never really heard a band like this and I was blown away.
I immediately went out and bought the Spooky cassette, and I’ve been a Lush fan ever since.
I know their drummer died, but I wonder if they’ll ever reunite. So glad I got to see them once. Unfortunately, it was at Lollapalooza, and they played at noon, and I’m pretty sure Green Day played after them, so the whole thing was a hot mess.
