  • Was he mad he had to sit at a different table? Reunited shoegazers Lush have canceled their remaining tour dates as bassist Phil King has left the band. So, you won’t get to see them at Iceland Airwaves or Rolling Stone Weekender after all. King replaced original bassist Steve Rippon before the release of 1992’s Spooky. Founding members Miki Berenyi and Emma Anderson released the following statement:

    We are very sad to announce the departure of Phil King from the band. As a result, we will no longer be able to appear at the Iceland Airwaves and Rolling Stone Weekender festivals – massive apologies to everyone who was looking forward to seeing us play there. We are in the process of acquiring another bass player and look forward to our final show at Manchester Academy on November 25th.


  • Split Single — side project of Bob Mould bassist Jason Narducy — shares another new track from the forthcoming full-length, Metal Frames. Stream the single “Blank Ribbon” below. On the upcoming release, Narducy is supported by fellow Mould band member drummer Jon Wurster and Wilco bassist John Stirratt. Find it in stores November 18th via Inside Outside Records.

  • With reissues on the way from Soundgarden and Temple of the Dog, it was only a matter of time before fellow grungesters Mother Love Bone announced a release. Mother Love Bone: On Earth As It Is compiles the band’s 1989 Shine EP, their only studio album Apple, and two bonus discs of rarities, demos, unreleased songs, and a new DVD, titled Love Bone Earth Affair, featuring rare performance footage. This comprehensive collection will be out November 4th via UMC/Stardog. [Pitchfork]
  • And while we’re on the topic of Seattle ’90s nostalgia, Seattle sweetheart Lisa Prank rolls out a clip inspired by the dating video in the 1992 Cameron Crowe film, Singles. Watch “Luv Is Dumb” below, directed by Marcy Stone-Francois and featuring guest cameos by locals Chastity Belt, Tacocat, Dogbreth, and more. [Stereogum]
