Lush are to release a limited LP box set, Origami, to coincide with their first live shows in almost 20 years. It collects the band’s five 4AD albums released between 1990 and 1996.
The box contains the group’s three albums Spooky (1992), Split (1994) and Lovelife (1996) and the singles compilations Gala (1990) and Topolino (1996). All have been out of print since the 1990s except Topolino, which has never before been available on vinyl.
All five LPs are being pressed on a different colour of vinyl and will come housed in a laminated box as designed by long-time associate and former v23 collaborator Chris Bigg.
Origami is exclusive to Record Store Day and will be available in participating independent record stores only from April 16th. Lush’s new EP Blind Spot is being released a day earlier on the 15th. Also due to demand, the CD boxset of Chorus which was released late last year – and sold out immediately – has been remanufactured and can be bought once again from the 4AD store.
