..... has anyone else read the new issue of Mojo with the massive Kate Bush feature and cover story?
What's everyone's favourite KB moment? Single or album?
And when the f*ck do we think the new album's due? It's now 10 years since the last (pretty dire IMO) 'Red Shoes'.
Personally, I think she's one of the few artists the word 'genius' belongs to.
And how much do we hate Tori frigging Amos? Dreadful derivative sixth-form poetry nonsense, I reckon.

i did a piece on hounds of love for the Church of Me abt a year ago. go to http://cookham.blogspot.com/2002_01_27_cookham_archive.html and scroll down past the so solid crew section.

Marcello Carlin, Wednesday, 22 January 2003 12:06 (nineteen years ago) link

Great link, DJ Martian. Didn't know about that site.

As for the Kate Bush album, if it's ready by then great, but I wouldn't count on it.

Favourite album has to be 'Hounds of Love'.

James Ball (James Ball), Wednesday, 22 January 2003 12:16 (nineteen years ago) link

Marcello - absolutely stunning. Well observed and fasntastically written. Damn impressed. It never ceases to amaze me that people don't own Hounds of Love - if there ever was an 'essential album' in your collection, there is no other one, really.

DJ Martian - interesting site....I think it'd be a colossal mistake to not release her album this year. What she must remember is that the age bracket who religiously bought her music has now grown up..... and rarely purchase CDs as such any more.... and she's not endeared herself to a new audience at all. Since her break, copyists like Amos, Harvey etc have appeared and cornered that end of the market. I've a feeling EMI will be very worried about this new album's release...


...great to see The Beloved still around, though.

russ t, Wednesday, 22 January 2003 15:43 (nineteen years ago) link

Yeah I'm looking forward to the new Kate Bush album, and from the list on that link, Lou Reeds new album (the Raven) looks pretty cool: (David Bowie, Laurie Anderson, Ornette Coleman, etc as guests) The new Massive Attack (100th Window) should be good too.

A Nairn (moretap), Wednesday, 22 January 2003 17:09 (nineteen years ago) link

Hounds of Love is hard to beat for melody, majesty and the whole 9th Wave operetta. But The Dreaming is still my favorite, because it's her darkest, weirdest, most charmingly unhinged record. I mean, "Sat In Your Lap" is some seriously odd music, but it's also catchy as hell. And "Leave It Open," and the donkey braying at the end of "Get Out of My House," and the scary-sexy-demon way she spells "dreamtime" on the title track. I think that album is where she put it all together; Hounds of Love (which is great, don't get me wrong) is where she buffed and polished it.

Jesse Fox (Jesse Fox), Wednesday, 22 January 2003 18:44 (nineteen years ago) link

My favorite is "The Kick Inside"... but then again I love Laura Nyro.

Sean (Sean), Wednesday, 22 January 2003 19:06 (nineteen years ago) link

I think her finest moment was the 'This Woman's Work' single which, IMO, is the finest song ever written - it's just perfect, lyrically and musically.

Even her b-sides are incredible - Under The Ivy, b-side to Running up that hill is another fine song.

Didn't like the Red Shoes album much at all (Eric Clapton?!),apart from Song of Solomon and Big stripey lie.

The Dreaming is a brave, dark record....hard to believe it's 20 years old.

Next month, it's 25 years since Wuthering heights hit number one, too!? Where did that go?

But my favourite album is Hounds of Love - Mother stands for comfort is like a warm blanket, and 9th Wave is breathtaking.

Kate Bush never ceases to amaze and fascinate me, though, and the new album, in this sterile music scene, will be so welcome.

Nick Southall (Nick Southall), Thursday, 23 January 2003 12:24 (nineteen years ago) link

Kate Bush: I loved everything up to and ending with Hounds. I love in particular, Lionheart with its weird tinkly piano and the idea of a young witch-in-the-making with her glass-shattering voice in a crooked little house swaying in the windy dark. I love the sheer musicality of Never For Ever. I love the majesty of Hounds.

I once had a dream with her "All the Love" as a soundtrack, I woke up completely creeped out and wondering where the words "I needed you - to love me too. I wait for your move" came from.

However her videos are unremitting pap. They are a complete embarrassment and I wonder why she doesn't hire e.g. Madonna's directors. I know it might all turn out horribly wrong and commercial and her delicate imagery and ideas wither but ANYTHING ANYTHING would be better than (god help me) "Army Dreaming" etc.

Tom (Groke), Friday, 24 January 2003 18:44 (nineteen years ago) link

Favorite Kate Bush moment? Wish I had a link to verify it, but in some interview a number of years ago, someone asked her when the last time she cried was, and her answer:

"When I heard Killing Joke broke up!"

**FACT**

Kate was a huge fan of the Joke. Youth even played bass for her on the HOUNDS OF LOVE album. Thus, KATE BUSH HONORS THE FIRE!!!

" Kate was a huge fan of the Joke."
- besides allegedly 'onouring the Joke (+breathing fire since birth),
the young pre-fame La Bush most certainly was pulled by the Incedible String,
purple hearting them fan clubbingly

Alex in NYC -- what's your fave Jaz'ed-up orchestra'vaganza then?

Jaz does Doors,
Jaz ups Zep,
Jaz goes Pink F ?

t\'\'t (t\'\'t), Saturday, 25 January 2003 01:24 (nineteen years ago) link

They're all pretty needless and dreadful, honestly. But, if I had to pick one, I'd probably opt for the Zep one. Actually, of Jaz's usually ill-advised orchestral outings, the record he did with Anne Dudley of Art of Noise called SONG FROM THE VICTORIOUS CITY is pretty interesting.

Alex in NYC (vassifer), Saturday, 25 January 2003 14:07 (nineteen years ago) link

'd pretty much agree with you, Alex, on orchestral Jaz (the worst of which must be the Jaz-in-Pink plunder)
'Victorious City', tho', mostly listenable even now, yes --

BTW, there ever been a separate thread on Anne Dudley?

Surmounter, Wednesday, 26 December 2007 20:13 (fourteen years ago) link

I just pulled out _The Whole Story_ the other day and it's still a damn good place to start. Clearly she's due for a new retrospective as _TWS_ only goes through 1986! But it culls choice tracks from her early albums, enough to help you decide if you want to pursue them further.

It was raining and I was alone this week so I put on Hounds of Love and it made me cry.
It's not an album to dip into, it has to be heard from start to finish, then again. For when those

maf you one two (maffew12), Friday, 17 June 2022 14:26 (two weeks ago) link

I'm not sure - I read that they've changed the rules a bit to allow this to happen (I think as a result of realising the rules were flawed to begin with) and I think much as it's good to see RUTH at number one and the rules make more sense, I also think the tinkering with the charts of the past ~15 years has kinda devalued the achievement. I think this specific rule change will make for an even more static and unevolving rundown every week, even if nobody is paying attention the way they were when I was growing up.

boxedjoy, Friday, 17 June 2022 16:09 (two weeks ago) link

probably not, sadly. it's showing remarkable longevity in its streaming strength for the type of hit it is, but the us charts are based also in large part on airplay, and harry styles and jack harlow are far ahead in that department while also being still-strong streamers. lizzo's song is also in the midst of making huge gains in airplay while also streaming well. the fact that kate looked like a strong challenger for the top 3 with #1 not being totally out of the question despite that disadvantage is absolutely astonishing. i guess there is an outsize chance it could see yet another surge after the rest of the stranger things season drops in a few weeks, and i suppose its airplay will be a little better by then (radio in the us is remarkably slow + this is obviously a bit of a left-field choice for pop stations), but who knows

The song posted 5.3 million in all-format radio airplay audience among reporters to Billboard‘s Radio Songs chart for June 9-15 — up 162% over the prior seven days, according to Luminate. On Billboard‘s Alternative Airplay chart — where Bush has had most of her career radio success, including a No. 1 with “Love and Anger” in 1989, and where Meg Myers’ version of “Running Up That Hill” was a 2020 No. 1 — Bush’s “Hill” debuts at No. 26 this week, marking her first hit on the listing since 1994. (When “Hill” originally hit in 1985, the chart was still three years away from its debut.) But the song is also getting increasing airplay on adult and even mainstream top 40 stations, trending to break onto Billboard‘s Adult Pop Songs listing, and perhaps Pop Songs, too, next week.

Melissa Chase, brand manager at Houston’s adult pop station KHMX, says that while the song’s recent surge in popularity is surprising, it’s not unwelcome. “One of our jobs as a pop music station is to be on the pulse of what is resonating with our audience,” Chase says. “When a song from the ‘80s comes back as a major point plot in a massive show [and] jumps back on the charts and tops the downloads and streaming charts, you have to pay attention and realize there is an appetite for this song.”

With the appetite comes the TikToks, viral tweets, and various Kate Bush memes from a younger generation who are devouring the song, some for the first time. “When I sing along to Jerry Garcia, I don’t think of the music only belonging to my parent’s generation,” Chase continues. “In the case of ‘Running Up That Hill,’ an artist’s magical power to connect across generations is a beautiful thing.”

As “Running Up That Hill” connects with a younger audience, it also causes older listeners to re-discover the track. David Corey, director of FM programming for Detroit adult pop station WDVD station says the station has been playing the track for the last two weeks, averaging about five times a day. “It sounds like it fits, even after all these years,” Corey says of the track, which is often sandwiched on the station in between the likes of Ed Sheeran and Shawn Mendes. “I have actually loved this song since the day came it out, and can’t believe it’s turning into a hit again.”

Josh in Chicago, Saturday, 18 June 2022 14:13 (two weeks ago) link

First time I heard “Running Up That Hill” — and Kate Bush — was on Casey Kasem’s American Top 40 in 1985. I think it was the record’s chart debut that week, because he said something like, “She’s gone to number one in the UK, but this is her first top 40 hit here in the US.” The song got pretty substantial airplay as I recall, mostly on a “progressive” FM station (WXRT), but even some on the top 40 stations.

JRN, thinking back on this, I realized this may not have been clear - basically, broadly, in 18th and 19th century classical music, there is a kind of shared language where chords follow a certain syntax where every chord in a key is assigned a particular role (function) in a progression, like words have different grammatical functions, so there are tonic chords like I that connote stability and rest at beginnings and ends of phrases, dominant chords like V that connote tension and anticipation and seek resolution to I, and predominant chords like ii and IV that build towards dominant from tonic, and progressions move in a certain direction from one to the other; other chords can substitute for these, there are ways to prolong or elaborate on the various parts of a progression. Tin Pan Alley era pop still follows these rules for the most part a lot of the time but a lot of rock and contemporary pop doesn't, exactly, even when it uses these chords (though there is plenty that does!).

Thank you. I did look into functional harmony a little bit after your previous post about it, but no explanation I found was as clear as this one.

I remember when this came out, I remember playing it in the car and taking it so personally.

I'm happy it's a big hit, but that's to the credit of the younger generation.

Listening to it now it just doesn't feel so personal and I feel a sense of loss but maybe I was just too young and sensitive then.
