Lush played at Lollapalooza in 1992, and released two more albums in the following years, ''Split'', which featured a more stripped-down sound than ''Spooky'' but otherwise continued with the trippy shoegazing, and the upbeat ''Lovelife'', which surfed on the mid-1990s {{Britpop}} craze to great success in the UK. However the attempted breakthrough on the American rock scene proved unsuccessful, and the band broke with their management after the cancellation of tours in the UK and Japan. In 1996 Acland committed suicide and Lush went into hiatus, eventually disbanding in 1998.

Lush was a British AlternativeRock band active from 1989 to 1996. It was, along with Music/MyBloodyValentine, {{Ride}} and {{Slowdive}}, one of the main examples of {{Shoegazing}}, a genre from the early 1990s thus named because of its druggy PsychedelicRock music and the relatively static live performances.

Lush further raised its profile with additional [=EPs=] extensive touring during the years 1990-91 (when it acquired the "shoegazing" label), performing among other places at the Glastonbury festival and going to Japan and the USA. In 1992 it released its first full-length album, ''Spooky'', produced by Robin Guthrie of the CocteauTwins, resulting in a sound fairly similar to that of the latter band--namely walls of sound, ethereal vocals and plenty of guitar effects. Just before the release of the album Rippon left the band and was replaced by Phil King.
