I knew a young lady who worked where I do, who got married before I divorced who had eyes that looked a lot like Kate's. Cute young lady, except she thought makeup should be applied like spackling.

Interesting body of work, her album The Dreaming is generally considered to be her best album. Hounds of Love, her most accessable.
her first two albums, The Kick inside & Lionheart, were created when she was still a teenager, and showed a talent beyond her years.
By her third album Never for Ever, she took control of her own production, image, and business, and was able to go her own way, which is not easily done in the music business.

Fascinating person.

...Don't think I've seen that one!

For those of you unfamiliar, take a gander at these lyrics from the song 'The Sensual World':

"Mmh, yes,

Then I'd taken the kiss of seedcake back from his mouth
Going deep South, go down, mmh, yes,
Took six big wheels and rolled our bodies
Off of Howth Head and into the flesh, mmh, yes,

He said I was a flower of the mountain, yes,
But now I've powers o'er a woman's body, yes.

Stepping out of the page into the sensual world.
Stepping out...

To where the water and the earth caress
And the down of a peach says mmh, yes,
Do I look for those millionaires
Like a Machiavellian girl would
When I could wear a sunset? mmh, yes,

And how we'd wished to live in the sensual world
You don't need words--just one kiss, then another.

Stepping out of the page into the sensual world
Stepping out, off the page, into the sensual world.

And then our arrows of desire rewrite the speech, mmh, yes,
And then he whispered would I, mmh, yes,
Be safe, mmh, yes, from mountain flowers?
And at first with the charm around him, mmh, yes,
He loosened it so if it slipped between my breasts
He'd rescue it, mmh, yes,
And his spark took life in my hand and, mmh, yes,
I said, mmh, yes,
But not yet, mmh, yes,
Mmh, yes."


Drink La Fee (or whatever else that gives you the 'warm' secondaries) and listen to this song...

The Brit. version of Penthouse ran some photos, back when Kate first launched, they tried to say the were her, but ended up having to retract that.
Back in the 80's there was a bootleg record that put the photos on the cover.
They are not really that great, and the record was poor quality.

Did you ever buy the Hammersmith video that had the CD with it?

I got the Cloudbusting CD back in 1987, it's a very hard to find item since so few were pressed.

I have a few marble wax Hounds of Love Lp's, including one promo version.
I also have The Single File Laser Disc (Japanese pressing)

All of her Cd's are to be remastered, and the non album B sides are to be added to each new CD. Hounds of Love had been redone, but I haven't seen the others yet.

I have the box set, just about everything that came out from Red Shoes... the original US CD's of her albums, some UK imports, 2 or 3 books and 3 or 4 videos.

I also have a picture disk 45 set... and some other things I can't think of at the moment.

I've had one too many drinks of Felix tonight so I can't be more precise... sorry.

I sure like the pictures, though!

The Marble casette is quite rare too.
I'd say it's rarer than the wax, since casettes don't survive well.

Fascinating person.

"The Dreaming" is my favourite KB album too, it is
quite a surprise to hear that it is generally considered
to be her best work.

I would not say "Hounds of Love" is her most accessible
work, I´d rather vote for "Never for Ever".
Do I remember correctly that "Running up that Hill" was
#1 in the charts? Would be impossible today. Sad times!

I do like "Lionheart" very much. Still a good kept secret.
Nobody I know knows this album.

If you listen to the music that if performed by 16-18 years
old girls today, you are not able to believe that an album
like "The kick inside" is reality. Sad, sad times!
The only breathtaking CD performed by a less than 20 years old
girl within the last 10 years was Fiona Apple´s "Tidal" imho.

Interestingly enough I´ve never cared about the fact that
Kate is a beautiful woman.
It was always her musical talent I admired.

Even more amazing her Tour of life in '79.
the whole show was amazing!, all the dance and production was her idea.
It's a shame the performance wasn't released in it's two hour form.
Also, later performers owe her a debt from her launching the wirless mike.

The Kick Inside & Lionheart are astonishing in light of her age (the songs go back even further) .

The Kathy Demos give an interesting glimpse in her early writing.
Apparently all her early home demos, got out several years ago, and have been widely bootlegged, if you haven't had a chance to listen to them, try hunting them down, as they are well worth hearing.

Babooooooooshka!

There is a funny Brit TV performance of Babooshka,( this was pre-Never for Ever) where Kate is on a TV talk show, and the old Dr. Hook band was there.
After her number, Kate sat down for the interview, and Dr, Hook kept hitting on her. After a few tries, he finally said "Not a chance I guess" Her look at him was priceless. :wink:

Commercial video:

Kate Bush Live at the Hammersith 1979 (approx one hour of the Tour of Life show)

Kate Bush The Whole Story (selected videos up to 1986)

The Sensual World (video & interviews for the album)

The Line The Cross and The Curve (an adaptation of The Red Shoes, story)

***The Single File Videos***** (not released in the USA, I have the Japanese Lase)

***The Hair of The Hound*** (Hounds of Love videos), released on The Whole Story in the USA.

Love Hounds Video Collection (Bootlegs of TV and misc performances and interviews), try a large record show or eBay, nice set of stuff.

As far as I know nothing on DVD, they were released on Laser Disc and video tape, back then (94 was the last release)........Check Movies Unlimited, or eBay, and a good video shop might have some old tapes around.

If I ever get around to getting a DVD burner, I need to transfer all my laser Discs to DVD. (more damn stuff to get)

Now if they could just get her out of the studio, it's almost 10 years.............. :wink:

As far as I know nothing on DVD, ....

Now, that is what I expected.

A lot of people are waiting for new material.
We all know, there is no new material.

This would be the time to sell old and rare material
on the new mediums (DVD, SACD).

Actually, I don´t need the SACD.
I don´t need the multichannel option.
But some DVD´s of concerts / clips would be
really worth spending some money.

I think there will be no remastered CD editions,
when SACD´s with a remastered CD-layer can be
sold for a 50-100% higher price.

I have no Kate Porn but I can post a review I wrote for Amazon:

Hounds of Love ~ Kate Bush List Price: $11.98
Buy new: $10.99
You Save: $0.99 (8%)

Availability: Usually Ships in 1 to 2 business days



4 of 5 people found the following review helpful:
Amazing use of technology... July 5, 2000
When Kate Bush's "Hounds of Love" was released in the US in 1985, there really had never been anything like it before. Altho techno-pop (Thompson Twins, Depeche Mode, Thomas Dolby et al) was popular, these bands all were using synthesizers with only a few oscillators so that the sound was rather thin. On "Hounds of Love" Bush was one of the first pop artists to tackle the Fairlight synthesizer which was one of the first "sampling" synths, not to mention the first truly polyphonic. It was was also a humongous monster, each was custom made, & they cost an arm & a leg!

Here we are 15 years later, sampling & digital technology has rendered the Fairlight a dinosaur, so how does "Hounds of Love" hold up? WONDERFULLY! The songs are excellent, the use of rhythms on "Big Sky" incredible & Dave Gilmour (Pink Floyd) contributes some burning guitar. This is an album that repays repeat listening; there is always something new to hear in the multi-textural instrumentations. Personally, I have never been without a copy of this album since it first came out, & I recommend you follow my example!

I have many more Amazon reviews, if you're interested.

....Fairlight synthesizer which was one of the first "sampling" synths, not to mention the first truly polyphonic.

Sorry, that´s bullshit, an old Moog modular synth (with patch cord)
and even the monophone Minimoog had a by far fuller sound
than the Fairlight, which was an 8-bit(!!!) unit, sounding
like an old telephone. ARP, Roland, EMS, Oberheim,
Korg, Sequential Circuits, everything available at that time
sounded better.
Not to mention the (also digitally working) PPG´s, the
Crumar GDS (that was used on Klaus Schulze´s "Dig It",
and the Synclavier.

The Fairlight was, as far as I know, first used by the Austrian
composers Bognermayr & Zuschrader for their
"Erdenklang - Sinfonie" in 1979-1980, one year later
Jean Michel Jarre used in on "Magnetic Field".

A good example (almost everybody knows) for the
"Fairlight-sound" is also Jan Hammer´s "Miami Vice theme",
thin, dirty, hissing, pale.

Btw., nobody uses a Fairlight today, but modular, patch wired,
filling a whole room, systems are still being made.
And still offer the ultimate creativity in sound design.

Sorry to have spoiled this thread with my rant!

One of my all-time favorite tunes is "All We Ever Look For." If I recall correctly, she writes (or wrote) a great deal of her material. Does anyone know, off hand, whether she wrote this one? I'm just curious.

Kate writes all of her material, there are a few covers she has done over ther years, but they appear as singles.
Kate did write All We Ever Look for.

Interesting News Item:

28 November 2003

Outkast hip-hop star Big Boi has a surprising musical hero - eccentric British
singer Kate Bush. The ‘Miss Jackson’ rapper - real name Antwan Patton -
credits his teenage musical development to Bush, and he's still so infatuated
with the reclusive star he wants to track her down and get her to produce songs
for his duo's next album. He says, "My uncle introduced me to Kate Bush's music
when I was about 14 years old, and that s*** opened my mind up. The first one I
got was ‘The Kick Inside’, then I bought ‘The Hounds Of Love’, then the
‘The Sensual World’. "She was so bugged out man! But I felt what she was
talking about in the songs. ‘Mother Stands For Comfort’, ‘Running Up That
Hill’. My uncle would explain what the songs stood for. Like ‘The Man With
The Child In His Eyes’ and all that s***. "I thought, 'Wow! She's so f***ing
deep! I was infatuated with her, still am. I gotta track her down! I just found
out that she was producing all that s*** herself! She's so f***ing dope and so
underrated and off the radar. So hopefully on the next record you're going hear
Outkast and Kate Bush do at least two or three songs." (WENN)

Interesting item,
Kate has worked with several people over the years, some of her guest appearances on other albums are as interesting as her own material.

But I'd rather see her finish her own album, before seeing her work with some else.

Time for some porn. :vale:

In the warm room
Her perfume reaches you.
Eventually you'll fall for her.
Down you'll go
To where the mellow wallows.
In the warm room
She'll touch you with your Mamma's hand.
You'll long to kiss those red lips,
But when you do
It'll feel like kicking a habit.
She'll tell you that she'll stay,
So you'd better barricade the way out.
She'll tell you she's true.
She'll tell you she loves you.
She's waiting in that warm room.
In the warm room
She prepares to go to bed.
She'll let you watch her undress,
Go places where
Your fingers long to linger.
In the warm room
You'll fall into her like a pillow.
Her thighs are soft as marshmallows.
Say hello
To the soft musk of her hollows.
She'll tell you that she'll stay,
So you'd better barricade the way out.
She'll tell you she's true.
She'll tell you she loves you.
She's waiting in that warm room.
In the warm room.
She's waiting in that warm room.

Love that song.

Michael Kamen wrote the string arrangements which will appear on Kate Bush's forthcoming album. LMO recorded the two tracks at Abbey Road Studio 2 on Saturday 11th October.


Michael Kamen has collaborated with Kate Bush on numerous occasions, including writing string arrangements for her last album which LMO performed. They worked together in the mid 80s on the soundtrack for the Terry Gilliam film "Brazil" and a version of the title track appears on Michael's album "Michael Kamen's Opus".


Michael Kamen conducted the 16-piece string section and the engineer was Simon Rhodes. Keep watching the site for news of a release date and a "buy" link on the recordings page.

"Hello Everyone, Many thanks for all your great letters of support and encouragement - they mean such a lot. The album is nearly finished now and will be out next year - we'll let you know when. It features some beautiful orchestral movements by Michael Kamen - we had a wonderful day together at Abbey Road Studios last winter. I'm so pleased with everyone's work on this record. There are some lovely performances and I hope you will all feel it's been worth the wait. Bertie keeps me very busy, he is so much fun and we are all really looking forward to Christmas. Wishing you a Merry Christmas and I hope next year is a really happy one for you. Lots of love, Kate x "

Well, lets wait and see what happens....

Sandie Shaw
Monday 28th March 2005

I turned around and there was Da Kween in a bright turquoise suit smiling at me, holding out her hand to be shaken (no gloves). By Sandie Shaw

''Keep still and stop fidgeting," muttered Grace through a mouthful of pins. Perched precariously on a chair, I stood as still as I could while my daughter sewed the hem on my pink Armani suit. Outside, Eric Nicoli, the chairman of EMI, stood in the rain with his chauffeur, George, waiting for me to emerge.

In the car we checked our ID - passports, driving licences, birth certificates, bank statements and personal invitations from the Queen to visit her at Buckingham Palace. We were on our way to a royal knees-up - a "do" to celebrate "the contribution of the music industry to the culture and economy of the United Kingdom". Like everyone else, I was invited to come alone, which filled me with great panic. I have never gone to public occasions on my own. I felt like a child on her first day at school. In desperation I rang Eric, who luckily also had an invite and offered to be my escort/minder for the evening. Eric has the dubious notoriety of being called "Big Boy" by Davina McCall on TV at a Brit Awards ceremony, so I felt I was in good hands.

Outside on the palace steps were a few straggly old-guard paparazzi, struggling to focus their cameras. Inside, I suddenly felt like Cinderella at the ball and had the wild urge to kick my shoes off and dance barefoot in the light of the sparkly chandeliers. Ushered through the echoing halls, we passed lines of waiters polishing glasses and pouring wine. I quickly went over to grab one (a drink, that is) for Dutch courage, and committed my first faux pas of the evening. "We'll bring the drinks to you in reception," advised the head waiter, bowing so deeply I thought he would split his trousers. I took an orange juice and mingled. I then committed my second faux pas. While being introduced to the Duke of Gloucester, I suddenly broke into a coughing fit. Hordes of equerries ran amok trying to furnish me with a serviette to mop up. Actually it wasn't such a bad mistake. Apparently most people had tried not to fall asleep while talking to him - or, having previously met him, completely avoided being reintroduced. He seemed a perfectly nice chap but somewhat lacking in the charisma department.

The three questions I knew my friends would ask the next day were: "Who was there?" "Did you meet the Queen?" and "What did she say?" Here goes . . .

The guests included the leader of the band of the Coldstream Guards, the head of music collections at the British Library, the conductor of the Windsor and Eton Choral Society, the director of the Specialist Schools Trust and (of course) the Master of the Queen's Music. Add to this a smattering of jazz musicians, sopranos, triple harpists, a large pinch of indie record company founders, a slice of fat-cat rock managers, movers and shakers, all mixed with a twist of current and former pop icons, and you had a rather heady royal cocktail.

I particularly enjoyed meeting up again with some of the old guard: Cilla Black, Roger Daltrey of the Who, Robin Gibb (still stayin' alive) and Ray Davies of the Kinks (accompanied by a rather attractive Swedish nurse, no doubt to take care of his recent mugging injuries - not). I really enjoyed meeting some of my Eighties musical heroes for the first time, like Peter Gabriel, Joan Armatrading and Kate Bush. Peter admitted to having me as a bedroom pin-up as a boy; Joan informed me she was now chair of Women in Music; and Kate took us on a grand tour of the Queen's art collection, which adorned the walls. She was ecstatic.

"Can you believe it? That's a real Rubens up there. Fancy having that in your front room," Kate bubbled. I felt a light tap on my shoulder. I turned around and there was Da Kween in a bright turquoise suit smiling at me, holding out her hand to be shaken (no gloves). She chatted away amiably and even managed to look interested as I explained my latest foray into European copyright law. All the while, Kate was rummaging in her handbag. Suddenly, she produced a pen and some paper. "Would you mind awfully signing this for my son?" she asked sweetly. The Queen looked lost for words. "I think that's a pop-star thing, Kate," I mumbled. The Queen seemed pleased to be let off the hook. "Quite right," she answered as an equerry quickly hustled her away.

Sandie Shaw's greatest hits album, The Very Best of Sandie Shaw, is available now on EMI Records

Kate Bush breaking 12-year album drought

Wed Aug 31, 2005 1:18 PM ET

By Jonathan Cohen and That guy who says lots of stupid shit, then says-"Bro" after to make it ok. Brandle

NEW YORK/LONDON (Billboard) - Pianist/songwriter Kate Bush will break a
12-year album drought this fall with the double-disc set "Aerial."

The album will arrive November 7 in EuroFuckyLand via EMI and a day later in North
America via Columbia. First single "King of the Mountain" will be available
September 27 at a host of digital download sites.

The artist, now 47, exploded onto the international charts with her debut
1978 hit "Wuthering Heights," which held the top spot in the U.K. for four
weeks. She went on to have a string of hits with "Babooshka," "Running Up
That Hill" and "Don't Give Up," a duet with Peter Gabriel.

But she disappeared from the spotlight following her 1993 album "The Red
Shoes," which debuted at No. 2 in the United Kingdom and No. 28 in the
United States. Since then, the next phase of Bush's recording career has
been the focus of routine speculation, while her influence was clearly heard
in the music of Tori Amos, PJ Harvey and Bjork.

In October 2001, Bush whet the appetite of her devoted fanbase during a
presentation at the annual Q Awards in London. While delivering her
acceptance speech after winning the publication's accolade in the classic
songwriter category, she told the audience, "I am actually making an album,
(but) it's just taking longer than I thought," she said.

Three of Bush's albums -- "Never For Ever," "Hounds Of Love" and "The Whole
Story" -- have reached No. 1 in the U.K.

Here you go 1888.

If you want to hear a preview BBC radio 2:

Wed. Sept. 21st, King of Mountain on R2, 9.30-10.30am (Brit time)

http://www.bbc.co.uk...o2/shows/bruce/

They have online streaming. (and show archives)

Sept . 27th the single King of the Mountain released in the USA, via Itunes, and other download sites.

From Music Week:
"This rhythmic gem grows and grows from an almost electronic-sounding start to suggest that the wait has been well worth it."



The full release of Aerial is two discs, with one disc an extended piece that runs like the Ninth Wave side of Hounds of Love, and the other disc being a normal (for Kate) song line up.

Got it on disc!

Very Hypnotic track, (Should be played very loud) sounds like Kate saw Citizen Kane, and used a bit in it's imagery, fascinating song about fame.


King of the Mountain

Could you see the aisles of women?
Could you see them screaming and weeping?
Could you see the storm rising?
Could you see the guy who was driving?
Could you climb higher and higher?
Could you climb right over the top?
Why does a multi-millionaire
Fill up his home with priceless junk?

The wind is whistling
The wind is whistling
Through the house

Elvis are you out there somewhere
Looking like a happy man?
In the snow with Rosebud
And king of the mountain

Another Hollywood waitress
Is thelling us she´s having your baby
And there´s a rumour that you´re on ice
And you will rise again someday
And that there´s a photograph
Where you´re dancing on your grave

The wind is whistling
The wind is whistling
Through the house

Elvis are you out there somewhere
Looking like a happy man?
In the snow with Rosebud
And king of the mountain

The wind it blows
The wind it blows the door closed

www.livejournal.com/community/gaffa/

I have been genuinely touched by the sense of anticipation I've felt from people," says Bush. "I feel really privileged that people have been waiting."...
Disc One, entitled 'A Sea Of Honey', comprises seven songs, ranging from the evocative lead-off single 'King Of The Mountain' through to the emotive reading of a lengthy section of the infinite series of numbers in 'Pi', to the playful, spell-like 'How To Be Invisible' and the moving, impressionistic conclusion 'A Coral Room'.

Disc Two, 'A Sky Of Honey', is a conceptual piece in nine parts, built around recurring motifs of light and birdsong, following a day from afternoon through dusk and night and on to sunrise.

"What is quite nice for me doing the two discs," 'Aerial's creator explains, "is it allows me to play with the semi-classical style which I like - space and acoustic music - but also the band-based stuff with lots of drums."
Bush has spent her twelve years out of the public gaze dividing her time between preparing the songs for 'Aerial' and looking after her son, Bertie, born in 1998. "I was having to work in really short little bursts," she says of her prolonged absence, "and I'd never done that before. The way I'd always worked was to just stay in the studio for fourteen hours a day. I didn't have that luxury to use the time in the same way. So there were lots of periods where really nothing much was happening. But in some ways I'd say it was very good for me to have had those kinds of restrictions. It was continually forcing me into a situation where I had to stand back from it."
...
The musicians credit list for Bush's eighth album reveals new collaborations with drummers Steve Sanger and Peter Erskine and percussionist Bosco D'Oliveira, along with more familiar names such as Gary Brooker (founder of Procol Harum, providing Hammond organ), guitarist Dan McIntosh, drummer Stuart Elliott (who has appeared on every one of her albums), bassists Eberhard Weber and John Giblin and recording engineer/bassist Del Palmer. As such, over the years, Bush has gathered around her something resembling a close-knit musical family.

"There was a sense of being at play as well as at work," Bush notes of the sessions for 'Aerial'. "I think that's very important because it is so hard and so frustrating sometimes trying to get an idea to materialise. It's not an easy process. I really like working with people who are old friends, it's lovely."

Poignantly, 'Aerial' also features some of the last work of orchestral arranger Michael Kamen, who had scored for every Bush album since 'Hounds Of Love' and who passed away only weeks after his contributions to the album were completed at Abbey Road studios in October 2003. "What was great about Michael was his stuff was very visual," says Bush. "He did such a fantastic job. It's very hard to believe he's not around any more."
Now, in November 2005, with the release of 'Aerial', Kate Bush is following in the grand tradition of groundbreaking double albums. "I used to really like the double albums I bought of artists that I loved," she states. "It wasn't in a way so directly connected with you spending money on an object. It was somehow more of an artistic statement. It said, 'Here's my music'."

Interesting article on how Kate works in the studio.


http://www.guardian....1589379,00.html


Kate Bush rules, OK?

Pop musicians are far more demanding in the studio than classical ones are. Michael Berkeley explains why



As a composition student I played rock music on the side, an experience that taught me a lot about direct communication and enabled me later in life to enjoy some brief but rewarding forays into film and commercial music. So when the conductor Richard Hickox rang me one day in 1984 to ask if I could help with a rather unusual job for which he and his choir had been engaged, I was intrigued. Kate Bush, it transpired, was working on her new album, Hounds of Love, and for one track, Hello Earth, she wanted a chorus to recreate the orthodox singing/chanting that made such a contribution to the film Nosferatu. The only problem, Hickox explained, was that there was no sheet music available and that anyway it would need to be notated and completely re-written to fit the Hello Earth track. Slightly bemused, I think - this was a far cry from his more customary Gluck or Vaughan Williams - he asked if he could put Bush in touch with me.

I had always considered Kate Bush truly original both as a performer and as a songwriter with an unusually fresh sense of harmony. If her new album next month is awaited with some excitement after a long fallow period, then in 1985 it was assumed that Hounds of Love would be something of a final fling at the conclusion of a waning career. I soon realised how wrong this assumption was when Kate sent me a cassette: it was zany, ambitious and yet utterly Kate Bush, but with gaps where I was to do her bidding. Having chatted at length, she sent me a long letter with the words of the song and precise instructions on how it should unfold. Her writing hand was curiously like her voice - quirky and touchingly childish; large, separated letters and with the dots over each "i" individually circled. There was, however, nothing child-like about the seriousness and certainty of its contents.
Structure was carefully delineated, verses and choruses written out fully and marked up in colour, and she talked of the sound quality in the most graphic terms. Still not having been able to identify the music of the title sequence of Nosferatu or even the language it was sung in, she suggested that, if necessary, I write something similar but added that while the key of this chorus would need to relate, it could arrive as something foreign, harmonically a surprise, as though from another world. In other words, while it had to fit, Kate wanted it to sound "collaged". This superimposition of foreign sources is a technique pioneered by visionary composers like Ives and Stockhausen. I soon realised that Bush was pretty exacting on the precise fit of the "non-fit". Indeed, she was thrilled when I suggested we create our own new language for this chorus of the spheres.

Although she had piano and violin lessons at school, Bush is essentially self-taught). I have always been fascinated by the difference of dynamics at work between popular artists and conventionally trained classical musicians, and had a similar experience with the Edge, of U2, when we worked together on the score of a film called Captive.

In fact, gifted "pop" musicians like Bush and U2 are far more demanding of themselves in the studio than classical musicians can afford to be, and will spend days working on a tiny fragment. On the other hand, they envy the technique that allows classically trained composers to write something down that can be realised by good sight readers almost instantly. The Edge was amazed that the London Sinfonietta under Oliver Knussen recorded my part of the score (some 30 to 40 minutes) in a couple of three-hour sessions while he laboured for weeks to get his sounds just as he wanted them.

The fact that Kate Bush needed my contribution to realise a specific moment of her original concept (as the Beatles used George Martin in a much wider context) was a marrying of two disciplines without diluting either. In terms of sculptural soundscape, this is the kind of midwifery role that Brian Eno fulfils for groups like U2.

Come the recording day, a group of male choristers, more accustomed to singing church services than backing vocals, descended on Bush's home, which was equipped with its own studio. Doubtless they were imagining that they were about to meet a wild-eyed rock babe, but Kate, quiet and unassuming - the kind of sympathetic, slightly shy girl who greets you from behind the counter at the local chemist - introduced us to her friend the bass player Del Palmer, who engineered the session. None of the singers or Richard had ever gone over and over four or five phrases so exactingly. No measure of Bach or Mozart had, in their experience, been subjected to such surgical scrutiny, and I began to worry that their voices might begin to tire. But Bush knew and got what she wanted and Hello Earth is, I think, a remarkable track on the album that finally broke the American market and established her as an iconic and hugely influential figure. I can't wait to hear what she has been up to now.

· Kate Bush's album Aerial is out on October 24 on EMI.

Fake Bush in Brighton!

24th Nov: RETURN OF THE BUSH

What better way to celebrate Thanksgiving day than by giving thanks to the recently, and triumphantly, returned High Priestess of Pop - KATE BUSH! Paying tribute to her hero, and re-creating the elusive Bushy magic, FAKE BUSH will sing her way through some Kate classics (and some lesser known ones, for you esoteric Bush-ites!). With costume changes a go-go, and a troop of prancing, bright green elves to weave their whimsy and weirdness into proceedings, there will also be opportunities to have your photo taken in your favourite Kate pose and outfit.
Hallelujah! Praise be to the Bushy one! And give thanks, for the return of the Bush.

Never touring again is a given ( Last one was 1979),...... but two albums next year?
She must have rolled up a couple before the interview.

Kate Bush will never tour again

02/11/2005 - 11:14:05

British singer Kate Bush has vowed she will never tour again, despite
telling her fans to expect two new albums next year.

The 'Wuthering Heights' hitmaker is set to release 'Aerial' - her first LP
in 12 years - next week, but she openly lacks the confidence to perform a
gruelling series of concerts.

She says of her recording schedule: "I thought I'd do two next year. Two in
one year. That would really surprise them wouldn't it?

Of touring she adds: "It's something that if I could do more then I would
have the confidence in my ability to do it. But I don't.

"I'm in a different space now. There's no way I'd tour again. You don't do
that unless you want to."


(Then again maybe not)

And I thought she gave up smoking.....................those little cigarettes.

"I never consciously gave up touring," she explains. "I only did just one, in 1979 and 1980, and I think other people gave up on me. I remember it as a fantastic experience, like being on the road with a circus. We're working on some ideas about doing some shows to promote this album, but it's early days."

Agreed! This is her most fully realized work, An "Irish Wolf Hound's of Love". (Her words)

Although she could have shown a bit more rack in the booklet. :DG:

Hopefully the rumors of some more non album (B-side singles) material are true.

Disc two is an amazing piece of work, with some of Kate's best lyric's that she has written, I think a blind person could visualize this disc.

Nocturne & Aerial wrecked my inexpensive computer speakers, I'll have to replace them next. (This is the best mastering job of all her recordings.)
I'd like to see if I can put The Ninth Wave and A Sky of Honey on one disc sometime.

I'm very curious what is lurking in her studio, KOTM from disc one is ten years old, and How to Be Invisible was written and recorded for the Disney Movie Dinosaur from what I understand.

It could be Kate wasn't joking when she said there may be another CD or so waitng in the wings, hopefully it won't be another twelve years.

Kate has put together quite a package with Aerial, in some ways Aerial reminds me of what she has said she had wanted to do twenty years ago, with Hounds of Love. (Burn a disc with The Ninth Wave & A Sky of Honey)

It could be fun being up on the roof with her, under A Sky of Honey.

She has said that she like to put "her little surprise's" for people to find on the records.

If you look on most of her vinyl releases, she always left a message on the runout grooves. :drink:

Looks like you spent more time combining old threads that hadn't been used, than just ignoring it in the first place Doughboy.

...Don't think I've seen that one!

For those of you unfamiliar, take a gander at these lyrics from the song 'The Sensual World':

"Mmh, yes,

Then I'd taken the kiss of seedcake back from his mouth
Going deep South, go down, mmh, yes,
Took six big wheels and rolled our bodies
Off of Howth Head and into the flesh, mmh, yes,

He said I was a flower of the mountain, yes,
But now I've powers o'er a woman's body, yes.

Stepping out of the page into the sensual world.
Stepping out...

To where the water and the earth caress
And the down of a peach says mmh, yes,
Do I look for those millionaires
Like a Machiavellian girl would
When I could wear a sunset? mmh, yes,

And how we'd wished to live in the sensual world
You don't need words--just one kiss, then another.

Stepping out of the page into the sensual world
Stepping out, off the page, into the sensual world.

And then our arrows of desire rewrite the speech, mmh, yes,
And then he whispered would I, mmh, yes,
Be safe, mmh, yes, from mountain flowers?
And at first with the charm around him, mmh, yes,
He loosened it so if it slipped between my breasts
He'd rescue it, mmh, yes,
And his spark took life in my hand and, mmh, yes,
I said, mmh, yes,
But not yet, mmh, yes,
Mmh, yes."


Drink La Fee (or whatever else that gives you the 'warm' secondaries) and listen to this song...

I know them well who was the first person in the universe before there was
anybody that made it all who ah that they dont know neither do I so there
you are they might as well try to stop the sun from rising tomorrow the sun
shines for you he said the day we were lying among the rhododendrons on
Howth head in the grey tweed suit and his straw hat the day I got him to
propose to me yes first I gave him the bit of seedcake out of my mouth and
it was leapyear like now yes 16 years ago my God after that long kiss I near
lost my breath yes he said I was a flower of the mountain yes so we are
flowers all a womans body yes that was one true thing he said in his life and
the sun shines for you today yes that was why I liked him because I saw he
understood or felt what a woman is and I knew I could always get round
him and I gave him all the pleasure I could leading him on till he asked me
to say yes and I wouldnt answer first only looked out over the sea and the
sky......... and the rosegardens and the jessamine and geraniums and cactuses andGibraltar as a girl where I was a Flower of the mountain yes when I put the
rose in my hair like the Andalusian girls used or shall I wear a red yes and
how he kissed me under the Moorish wall and I thought well as well him as
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
another and then I asked him with my eyes to ask again yes and then he
asked me would I yes to say yes my mountain flower and first I put my
arms around him yes and drew him down to me so he could feel my breasts
all perfume yes and his heart was going like mad and yes I said yes I will
Yes.
