I lost contact with him for a few years, but when we were thinking about making a new record, our manager was coming up with ideas for producers. We wanted someone who understood something about the band. I got in touch with Danny via Facebook and asked him if he knew who might be good to produce Lush. He immediately put himself forward. Jim Abbiss, who had produced the Ladytron album Witching Hour is friends with Danny and they had always had an idea that they would work on something together one day. It was probably a drunken chat. So, Jim got involved, which was exciting.

"I have had to keep this quiet for over a year but now the secret is out. It is an honour and a pleasure to produce the first new music in 20 years from one of the most important bands of my youth. X".
20 years after Lush's last studio recording and live show, one of the most greatly missed British bands of the Nineties have decided that 2016 is the time to put an end to the constant requests and are to play a series of shows in the spring, visiting America, the UK and mainland Europe. The tour will be preceded with a brand new EP, so it's a new beginning in more ways than one.
While there are plans further down the road to record an album, for now the new EP (as yet untitled, but it will be self-released) will feature four tracks, jointly written by the band's co-founders Emma Anderson and Miki Berenyi. Production is being shared between Jim Abbiss and Daniel Hunt of Ladytron.

"While the Liverpool-bred group just barely missed the U.K. Top 40 with this stylish tune from 2005's Witching Hour, Ladytron's magnetic electro-pop became a cult favorite here thanks to its sensational soundscape of robotic beats, bewitching vocals, and icy synths. Remarkably just as fresh a decade on". – MacKenzie Wilson

"Witching Hour" featured on NME's "50 Still-Awesome Albums That Made 2005 a Dynamite Year For Music" list
"Somehow, against the odds, Liverpool's Ladytron managed to pick their way through the wreckage of Fischerspooner's dreams and escape the electroclash scene. Third album Witching Hour is no less-indebted to 80s synth-pop and new wave but found a new dream-pop shimmer too, taking them into shoegazing territory. They'd finally made it to the cusp of the 90s".

Ladytron at The Forum (2011)
Mira Aroyo's distinctive Bulgarian over the mechanical buzz of "True Mathematics", a fabulously frantic cover of Death in June's "Little Black Angel" and old favourite "Discotraxx" with its repeated claptrap fill were key show highlights.
And to finish, there was the magnificent "Destroy Everything You Touch". Totally glorious and sensational, the mind blowing synchronised laser display and strobes totally complimented what has always sounded like the backing to a "cold war" rave.
