and beginning again.
On this date ten years ago, the Lush compilation album Ciao! Best of Lush was released, bringing to a neat and tidy close the last of the official releases.
It's also the end of our 10-year anniversaries. It doesn't seem possible, to quote an oft used phrase, that a decade has passed. The music still sounds as fresh and vibrant to me today as it always ever has.
But Ciao! isn't supposed to be viewed or rather listened to as a final summing-up anyway. With the tracklist opening with Ladykillers and ending with Etheriel it's really more of a rewind, bringing us back at the beginning to replay over and over again.
