..... 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.

Kate Bush (title TBA) (U.K. - EMI, September 2003)

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.

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

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
moments pop out at you and make you sit up, "pause for a jet", "look who's here to see you", "Murderer!".
the key change when the Hello Earth theme returns. I put this moment here.

Okay, "classic pop"-type radio stations are working this into their playlists as if this was really played on US mainstream radio in 1985. It was played on college radio and some album rock stations.

Which is bullshit everywhere except Hollywood's mind.

Although the track’s streaming numbers have recently declined – down 12.5% in official U.S. streams since last week, according to Luminate – copious radio airplay has more than compensated for the dip, making “Running Up That Hill” an even bigger hit than it was during the peak of Stranger Things hype in May and June. For the Aug. 6 charts, the track held at No. 3 for a second week on the Hot 100, and climbed from No. 10 to No. 7 on Billboard‘s Radio Songs listing, an increase of 17%, to 48.4 million impressions. The crossover to massive radio success is a rarity for recent viral catalog hits – from Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams” on TikTok in 2020 to Nirvana’s “Something in the Way” from The Batman earlier this year to Metallica’s “Master of Puppets” in the same Stranger Things season last month, none of which have made it to Radio Songs this decade – making “Running Up That Hill” a sort of unicorn.

“Somehow we’ve been able to traverse that Stranger Things moment,” Chester says. “It’s transcended and bridged to passive audiences.” Adds Michael Martin, Audacy’s senior vp of programming, as well as program director for pop station Alice@97.3 in San Francisco, which has played the track 1,100 times — more than any other station, according to Luminate — “This is a rarity. This happens few and far between.”

Malevolent Arugula (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Friday, 5 August 2022 10:04 (three months ago) link

Also:

Between the latest season debut of Stranger Things on May 27 and the end of June, Bush earned an estimated $2.3 million in streaming royalties, Luminate, an independent company that provides data for Billboard’s charts, told Fortune, and Quartz originally reported.

A spokesperson for Luminate said the company calculated the $2.3 million figure by using a standard formula to convert streams into projected revenue.

“We can’t speak to who actually earns the money, as that involves taking a deeper dive into individual contracts/publishing/master ownership, and we don’t track that with our data,” the spokesperson said.

But in a rarity for the music industry, Bush owns the entire copyright to original recordings of her songs—including “Running Up That Hill”—through her independent record label Noble & Brite, Quartz reported. As a result, Music Business Worldwide, a global music industry news site, estimates the singer retains the majority, possibly up to 80%, of royalties generated from her biggest hits. Many major artists do not own their original recordings, giving their labels the rights to distribution and therefore giving up a significant cut of any royalties.

Sorry to be captain obvious, but mainstream pop radio sucks so, so, so badly — have they tried playing other good songs to see if people like them? There might be some other songs out there that are even better than Boston or whatever, might be worth it! lol

KROQ here in LA always being the odd exception. ROTH was in semi-heavy rotation - enough to get into the station's top songs of 1985 (in between "A View To A Kill" and Arcadia's "Election Day").

Elvis Telecom, Saturday, 6 August 2022 21:24 (three months ago) link

yeah alternative (or rather, 'modern rock') stations of the period clearly the outliers. I'm frankly rather surprised it ever got as high on regular charts in 1986 in the US as it appeared to; I can assure you I never heard it once on the radio here until sometime in 1987 when I lived in the bay area and had a modern rock station to listen to. even then I didn't hear it very regularly.

akm, Saturday, 6 August 2022 22:53 (three months ago) link

My kids have always been fans of "Stranger Things," and I remember the first season getting them to play "Should I Stay Or Should I Go," and the second season "Every Breath You Take." But of course neither of those songs took off (again) in the mainstream, I suspect because Tik Tok wasn't quite a thing yet (right?). Tik Tok appeared around 2017, the same year as the second season of "Stranger Things." (As my kids noted, there was no big breakout song moment of Season 3.) Curious what others songs will benefit from this new way of consuming/discovering music going forward. Saw someone post this well-edited fan movie giving a taste of things to come:

The crazy story I have is that I first heard "Big Sky" when the video was in semi-heavy rotation on MTV. There was somewhat of a promo push behind The Whole Story comp - I think the video for "Experiment IV" was on the first episode of 120 Minutes.

i hear the song pretty much every time i put the radio on now. once after the adult contemporary station played it the on-air guy said that he hates the song, hated it back in the 80s, and doesn't like any of kate bush's music, but "we know you all like it so we're playing it anyway". rude! but i appreciate the honesty regardless since it's abundantly clear that most ppl who work for radio now couldn't give less of a shit about any of the music they play

can't even think of too many well known covers; Pat Benetar's Wuthering Hights (bad), maxwell's This Woman's Work (good but unnecessary) and that's about it?

has anyone else seen the all-woman KB tribute act Baby Bushka? i went into it expecting some theater-kid preciousness and..that’s part of it to an extent but the costumes and choreography and performances are all terrific and done totally lovingly and sincerely. i actually teared up at a few points during their set.

The Futureheads cover of Hounds was how I discovered her. I posted here that discovering KB was like finding out that you'd been living next to a skyscraper without noticing. Bimble replied "please tell me that you have or are planning to buy The Dreaming" which was lovely, like having an older sibling with cool taste to nag you.

I missed baby bushka in the bay area earlier this year; I'd assumed they were from the UK but they're from San Diego! youtube clips of them are excellent
