miki berenyi–exited the music world returning only occasionally as a guest vocalist for a handful of acts. Read under the radar’s interview (from november of this year) in which she reveals how the events of 10 years ago affected her and why she’s never returned to start another band or to pursue solo work. she next appears on tracks from eric matthew’s collaboration with christopher seink-seinking ships–LP due out in early 2008. take a listen to the EP (released oct of this year) here.
and philip king has toured with the jesus and mary chain as their bass player.
here’s to hoping we continue to hear more from the remaining 3 members of the former lush, though it’s apparent there will be no reunion forthcoming. (…or ever.)
