Emma Anderson of Lush used to work for Ladytron’s management

I used to work for Ladytron's management, so I met Danny back then and we became friends. I never forget the first time I worked in the office and we all went to the pub, and he sat next to me and asked, "Are you Emma Anderson from Lush?" It turns out he was a massive Lush fan when he was about 15. He told me that he had posters of me on his wall and that Ladytron "only existed because of Lush".

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.

Daniel Hunt and Jim Abbiss produced the forthcoming EP by Lush

According to Daniel Hunt:

"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".

More details here:

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.

"Destroy Everything You Touch" makes number 30 in a BBC America Top 100

The outstanding "Destroy Everything You Touch" makes number 30 in BBC America's Top 100 Greatest British Songs of the 21st Century (So Far).

"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" was released 10 years ago today

The incredible Witching Hour was released 10 years ago on 3 October. This album is generally considered Ladytron's best and signified a pretty radical change of their style from the electropop of 604 and Light & Magic to a rockier/heavier sound. Witching Hour didn't age a bit and it still sounds fresh.

Ladytron featured on NME's The Famous Songs That Gifted These 23 Massive Bands Their Names list

"It's remarkable to think Liverpool's Ladytron formed as long ago as 1999, though the song they named themselves after was an ambient glam classic by Roxy Music from the early seventies. When Bryan and Brian performed on The Old Grey Whistle Test in 1972, they famously upset host 'Whispering' Bob Harris by sounding too much like the future".

"Witching Hour" featured on NME's "50 Still-Awesome Albums That Made 2005 a Dynamite Year For Music" list

The fantastic 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".

Reuben Wu - How to Avoid a Pirate Attack

Reuben published on his Soundcloud account a new track, "How to Avoid a Pirate Attack". Because it ends too soon, I think he did also a longer version of this cool techno track.

Ladytron featured on TEC's 30 Favourite Gigs 2010-2014 list

Ladytron at The Forum (2011)


Korg is a four letter word… but then so is love. Ladytron pulled off that rare feat of being an electronic based act that appealed to rockers, emos, indie kids and synthpopsters alike. Their only UK gig of 2011 was drawn from all of their albums.

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.
