Christmas Message From KATE BUSH

25 December 2021

With nearly two years of Covid, are any of us the same people
we were before? It’s left everyone confused and uncertain of the future.

It’s been a terrible time of loss for so many. I want to say a big thank you to all the people on the front line and in the NHS. I have such huge respect for all the nurses and doctors who’ve already been working flat out for nearly two years. These caring people are showing such extraordinary acts of kindness to others. Let’s hope they get the pay rises they rightly deserve.

I’d like to mention something that happened a few weeks ago on a walk; stopping to look
at the view, I noticed something moving in a tree right beside me. It was a Goldcrest – the smallest bird in Europe, even smaller than a wren. I stood still, hoping not to frighten it away.

Its colouring is beautiful – a peacock’s eye on each wing and a striking yellow streak on its tiny head. This gorgeous little ball of fluff flew away after ten minutes or so. I’ve only ever seen one once before and very briefly. It made my day. In these strange times, I really hope you can get the chance to stop for a moment and feel nature around you.

Please stay safe. Wishing you a restful Christmas
and hoping 2022 is a happier year for everyone.

With love”

KATE BUSH Released Double Album ‘AERIAL’ 15 Years Ago Today

7 November 2020

Album: AERIAL – 8th LP
Released: 7 November 2005 – 15 years ago

The Guardian: “Aerial sounds like an album made in isolation. On the down side, that means some of it seems dated. You can’t help feeling she might have thought twice about the lumpy funk of Joanni and the preponderance of fretless bass if she got out a bit more. But, on the plus side, it also means Aerial is literally incomparable… Daring to walk the line between the sublime and the demented is the point of Kate Bush’s entire oeuvre. On Aerial she achieves far, far more of the former than the latter.” Full review here. Score: 5/5.

Kate Bush: “Obviously I try to make the best music that I can, but after about two years of making an album, you start to worry: ‘Is it going to come out all right? Is it all going to sound churned out?'”

‘HOUNDS OF LOVE’ LP By KATE BUSH Released 35 Years Ago

17 September 2020

Artist: Kate Bush
Album: Hounds Of Love – her fifth LP

Released: 16 September 1985 – 35 years ago
Score: #1 in the UK and The Netherlands, #30 in the USA

Pitchfork review: “With her self-produced fifth album, Kate Bush became a total auteur, embracing the possibilities of digital sampling synthesizers and creating a perfect marriage of technique and exploration. She became the most musically serious and yet outwardly whimsical star of her time. She held onto her bucolic childhood and sustained her family’s support, feeding the wonder that’s never left her. Her subsequent records couldn’t surpass Hounds of Love’s perfect marriage of technique and exploration, but never has she made a false one.” Full review here. Score: 10/10.

“I wasn’t an easy, happy-go-lucky girl because I used to think about everything so much, and I think I probably still do.”Kate Bush

Singles: Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God / Cloudbusting / Hounds Of Love / The Big Sky
