If you ever wondered what Watching You Without Me would sound like coming from the bottom of a lift shaft slowed down a little then this would be for you
(it's rather good)

Music/photos/interviews/videos/whatever.

My favourite https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XR4KnfcgLm0

Also the song Mrs Bartolozzi.

The Hammer Horror video is the sexiest thing in music ever.

Image-wise nowt beats Kate Bush in a suit:



She's just lovely, isn't she? *Alan Partridge sigh*

I'm not sure what the general consensus on 'The Line, the Cross and the Curve' is but it was the first Kate Bush thing I was obsessed with, I just think it's wonderful.

Just a quick heads-up that BBC 4 are showing the 1979 Christmas Special tonight at 1:15-2am - should also be available on iplayer for a while.

I remember a number from that called Them Heavy People, where the two male dancers backing Kate wore long overcoats and big hats.  I reckon that must have inspired the Miller Lite 'it ain't heavy' adverts of the late-80s.

There's a Record Collector Kate Bush special mag that's just come out a few days ago.

Simon Price tweeted that he's written the article on Hounds Of Love that's in it.

Special K

£8.50 for a magazine! Is that the going price these days?

daf

That's not bad actually - similar 'special issues' tend to be priced at around £9.99.

My two favourite KB things are two songs Running up that Hill and Hounds of Love.

It's probably this picture, within which you can just about see her bush.

This documentary. Or rather a bit of it that made me think "WOW!' I was in my very early teens at the time and frankly don't think that sort of thing should be screened at a time when adolescents could be watching.

(PS, it's not this particular bit. I just can't get it to copy from the start.

Just remove the '&t=1274s' bit from the url : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_OLJFzNPBNg

Cheers DAF. I did watch it a while back and must have stopped at that bit or scrolled it back for some reason I can't remember.

PS, I wasn't into her music at that time simply because a girl in my year who I thought was a bit of a snob was talking about how much she liked her between lessons one day. I was wrong on both counts. Kate is very good (musically, not just lookswise) and ****** was a really nice lass. I'm Facebook friends with her nowadays. ****** that is, not Kate.

I remember at school with the boys there was sort of Beatles/ Stones type rivalry. Who did you swear allegiance to? Kate Bush or Debbie Harry. Or really who did you most fancy? We can thank their respective management promotion teams and Scandecor poster company for that.

Never really had that at my place. Which is just as well as I liked both.

Even though the standard version of the 'Wuthering Heights' video evokes nostalgia with it's hazy of-it's-time-ness, the alternative version is preferable for it's beautiful location and Bush acting all vampish in a red dress. Ah, halcyon, hopeful days.

My favourite Kate Bush thing is searching 'Wuthering Heights Day' on YouTube:

De Efteling special - 12 May 1978

QuoteOn 12 May 1978, the Dutch broadcaster TROS broadcast a 20 minute Kate Bush television special, recorded at the Dutch amusement park Efteling. On 10 May 1978, Efteling was ready to open the Haunted Castle, the most expensive attraction it had ever constructed, and they wanted to promote it as much as they could. Ton van der Ven, who designed the castle, appeared in a popular talk show and in April a documentary featuring the Haunted Castle was made by filmmaker Rien van Wijk, who was eager to shoot in the latest attraction before it officially opened. Kate, who just had a big hit with Wuthering Heights, was approached for a television special that would promote both Efteling and her songs. The special was filmed in April, a month before the official opening of the castle.

   

• "Moving" was filmed in the square in front of the Haunted Castle
• "Wuthering heights"; Kate can be seen inside the Haunted Castle. Among other things, a smoke machine was used.
• "Them heavy people" was filmed at 3 locations; in the attic of the castle, at the entrance with the oriental spirit and outside in front of the entrance of the well that is part of the attraction 'The Indian water lilies'.
• "The man with the child in his eyes" was filmed by the lake with gondolettes and swans
• "Strange Phenomena" has the double shot with the mirror image and was filmed in the castle's catacombs.
• "The Kick Inside". Kate has gray hair in this shot and is lying in a boat surrounded by flowers on the lake and sailing away. This scene conjures up images of Elaine and The Lady of Shalott, classic poetic figures from the Arthurian legend.

[Lighting designer] Bert Klos : "They were very heady days. There were so many different locations and I wanted to support the actions of Bush as well as possible with light. She was a short woman with a thin voice, but very professional. That woman couldn't be stopped, she just kept on going. When we wanted to sit down for a while, she already stood up and said: 'come on guys!'. I can even recall a soundman tripping across his own feet from sleep at 1am!"

Hadn't seen this before - Babooska in Venice (1980)



Quote from: Kate Bush"Babooshka, again, was to be performed abroad, this time in Venice. Venice is an extremely beautiful place, and if you ever get the chance to see it, please do, it really is magical. Water is the way of everything there--even lampposts are on water. I took lots of photos, and we've included one of a canal. The hotel that we were staying at was beautiful, with an incredible view of the ocean out of my window. For this TV show Gary [Hurst] and I had rehearsed a duet which we had made up the night before. Often this has strangely good results; maybe it is due to adrenalin. Gary had hired a suit from Moss Bros. the day before, and I'd pulled out an old dress which I used to wear when I was in the KT Bush Band and we performed in pubs. This TV show was live, and as the studio was only across the road (the other side of the hotel backed onto one of the few pieces of dry land in Venice), every performer dressed and made up at the hotel and walked to the TV studio fully equipped . Our turn came, and as we hit the street we saw silver-suited spacemen; red-, blue-, green-haired people; electric guitars; pantomime horses; one yellow submarine and two dancing bears spilling in and out of the TV centre. We squeezed past the various brightly coloured suits and smiles, did our bit and squeezed past them again on the way back to the hotel. In many ways it reminded me of Noah's Ark: two of every kind in a place on the water. Just as we entered the hotel we met Peter Gabriel, plus band, who were also on the same show and were on their way out. We exchanged very English greetings on foreign land: "Break a leg, old chap!"; and Peter headed on his way to the bizarre circus. Meanwhile, we had heard that there was a TV room upstairs, so we rushed up to a mini-circus where all the artists that had already performed were sprayed around the floor, glued to the television, expressing kind words of comradeship in the relevant language to whomever was on the screen at that point in time; an unusual live, friendly feeling. Peter's performance was powerful and stood out amongst all the others, and the viewing-room certainly seemed to agree."

*sighs* Yes she is.

Babooshka is my fave Bush song (and how many people envy that double bass?) Honourable mention to The Dreaming as well.

Crikey, I'm well swooning over Kate in that suit too.

This Delius I like for it's escapist romantic nature:

Been up in terrible quality for years but someone, no idea who, put it up in some sort of HD. As much as I like those sexy pictures I admire her too much to go into that area a lot.

The most satanic thing was of course this.

Could she have known this was helping EVIL or a cry for help??
