About this deal

had great fun listening to each album after its relevant discussion in the book, which provided many ways to read the songs together/indicated where they were ongoing stories. I found myself musing that when Kate Bush (a massive Bowie fan) leaves us (many, *many* years from now, I hope), she'll be borne across the water to the Isle of Avalon in a flower-bedecked barque, in the style of King Arthur.

I'm sad - I expected a more personal look at Kate Bush, but perhaps that was unrealistic given how private a person she is known to be. I realize there may be some other flaws in this book, but I'm totally biased when it comes to Kate, and I just really loved this book and felt incredibly grateful to Tom Doyle for blessing us with a little bit of Kate Bush magic and introducing the new generation of fans to her Art in such a loving and respectful way. He has crafted an affectionate and informative portrait of the woman behind some of the greatest music ever recorded.I hadn't heard much about her until I heard that the TV show "Stranger Things" used one of her songs so she became popular with the younger generation. It’s the closest we get to see the singer with her guard down, upbeat but slightly paranoid about the release of her Aerial album. A Times Book of the Year An Uncut Magazine Book of the Year A Waterstones Music Book of the Year A Virgin Radio Book of the Year A Louder Book of the Year ‘Probably the best Bush book to date. I've been obsessed with Kate Bush's work for many years, and this was a treasure trove of stories, trivia, and insights.

I was fortunate to have been going to and from the UK at about the time of her first recording and became a fan early on, turning some of my friends at home in the US on to her as well. Doyle’s attempt to present Bush in a fresh way is praiseworthy and will open new fans’ eyes to her peerlessness, but the impenetrable Bush mystique?Met dank aan close friend en superfan Martin behoor ik zelfs tot de uitverkorenen die haar concert Before The Dawn hebben gezien. It was one of those drop-everything-else-and-stare-open-mouthed-into-space-utterly-mesmerized moments. This episodic approach works well and there’s no attempt to delve into Bush’s personal life or work out what she was up to during the wilderness years of 1993 to 2005 (in all likelihood, not a lot, other than making Aerial and bringing up her only child Bertie).

The hit Netflix show Stranger Things, a love letter to eighties cinema and its cultural dayglo made heavy use of Running Up That Hill and introduced her to a new and vaster audience than she has ever been subjected to. Tom Doyle also intertwines vivid reconstructions of transformative moments in her career and insights from the friends and collaborators closest to her, including her photographer brother John Carder Bush and fellow artists David Gilmour, John Lydon, and Youth. Fascynują historie o poszukiwaniu dźwięków idealnych, odkrywaniu w otaczającym świecie elementów, które będą mogły wzbogacić utwory (tłuczenie szkła, ptasie trele). We're always happy to answer any questions or queries you might have, please get in touch using one of the methods below. Although Doyle gently probes Kate and politely challenges her occasionally during the interview, he doesn’t pass judgement during the book or reach any conclusions; it’s left for the reader to make up their mind.By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions. This book is split up into 50 segments focused on songs or periods in her life that give you a really in-depth idea of what was going on or how the song came to be. Split into 50 brief chapters, Doyle’s portrait stitches together a comprehensive, revealing commentary on the notoriously media-shy artist and her complicated relationship to her craft, public persona, and audience (“If you make music and you don’t let people hear it, you could almost say it doesn’t exist,” she once said). She has especially sweet things to say about Noel Fielding's appearance in Let's Dance For Comic Relief, in which he danced to Wuthering Heights dressed as Kate in the "red dress" video, and using the iconic choreography.
