1990s shoegaze legends Lush recently reformed and released a great new EP, Blind Spot, in April. This year the band have also been playing their first U.S. shows in 20 years. This past Wednesday the band performed at the 9:30 Club in Washington DC and Under the Radar co-publisher and longtime Lush fan Wendy Lynch Redfern was there to shoot the show. The band performed 21 songs from across their career, including two tracks from Blind Spot.

Read out recent interview with Lush on their reunion and Blind Spot. Also read our review of the Blind Spot EP. Below is the video for "Out of Control," the single from Blind Spot.

Lush (singer/guitarist Miki Berenyi, singer/guitarist Emma Anderson, and bassist Philip King) were one of the originators and main icons of the shoegazing genre, along with Slowdive, Ride, My Bloody Valentine, and Swervedriver (who have all reformed in recent years). Lush released three albums in the '90s, but split up after the 1996 suicide of drummer Chris Acland. Their final show was in Tokyo, Japan in September 1996. Justin Welch of Britpop icons Elastica have been playing drums at their reunion shows.

Last year Lush also released Chorus, a box set collecting all their albums, as well as various B-sides, demos, radio sessions, remixes, and unreleased tracks. Read our review of Chorus here.

Also read our two 2015 interviews with Berenyi and Anderson on their albums Split and Lovelife, in which they discussed the challenges of reforming. Also read our 2007 interview with Berenyi, which at the time was her first interview in a decade, since Lush's breakup.
