Episode 8: Bush Telegraph talks Lionheart
Seán introduces another Bush Telegraph special episode - Paul and Darrell, chatting across thousands of miles, discuss Kate's second album, Lionheart, the singles Hammer Horror and Wow, Kate's continuing fame and success at that time, and generally how much the album means to them, almost 40 year later. Seán tops and tails the episode with bits of news!
Episode 7: Introducing the Bush Telegraph
Seán introduces the first of a new series of fan chats. Paul and Darrell, friends for 40 years, reminisce and talk about Kate's music and influence. These "Bush Telegraph" podcast-within-a-podcast episodes hope to cover many topics regarding Kate, including the release of singles and albums, the Kate Bush Club newsletters, conventions, TV appearances, rarities, and visits to the Farm. In this episode we are introduced to Paul and Darrell as they reminisce about their introduction to Kate...
Episode 6: Wuthering Heights 40 Year Anniversary Special
In this episode Seán does a reboot of the Wuthering Heights episode from last year, specially for the 40th anniversary of the release of Kate's debut single. We are choosing not to feel old! Seán discusses the history of the track, how it was written and released, and how it went on to be a cultural phenomenon. Enjoy!
Episode 5: A very KT party in London
In this episode, Seán is joined by Thomas Dunning as they travel from Dublin to London to attend the HomeGround party in the RVT. We talk Kate at the airport, meet up with the Homeground gang, talk to DJ Paul Thomas and photographer Guido Harari and hear some terrific Kate Bush music played live. And we remembered to record much of it!
Minisode 2: The Sensual World
In another shorter minisode, Seán looks at the story of how Kate slowly (and at times painfully) pieced together what would become one of her most celebrated works - her stunning 1989 masterwork, The Sensual World!
Minisode 1: Coffee Homeground
In the first of our shorter "minisode" podcasts we (randomly) throw the spotlight on one particular song - this time it's Coffee Homeground! Seán discusses the tracks origins, it's distinctive Brechtian feel, the possible influence of a very creepy short story by Roald Dahl and he also looks at how the song was realised on the live stage by Kate back in 1979.
Episode 4: Des gemmes cachées du Kate Bush
In this episode Seán is joined on the phone by Tristan in France and they discuss a selection of Kate's less well-known but nevertheless interesting b-sides and rarer tracks. We also indulge in some very geeky collectors chat. Kate's French and Irish language recordings are chewed over, her earliest recorded work to be officially released gets due praise and we get to grips with everyone's favourite 1994 10-minute dance remix - Shoedance! Enjoy.
Episode 3: The Most Wuthering Heights Podcast Ever!
This episode is a celebration of Kate's debut single, the classic song Wuthering Heights! Seán chats to participants at the Most Wuthering Heights Day Ever in Dublin (see katebushnews.com for the video featuring hundreds of "Cathys"!) and he explores the story of the song and the Emily Brönte novel; how it immediately thrust Kate into international stardom. It's our tribute to the lasting legacy of this truly remarkable recording.
Episode 2: My Life as a Fan
Our second episode is an excuse to take a look at the chronology of Kate's career through the eyes of a fan who was there from the start - Paul Thomas. Paul chats on the phone to Seán about the early days of KB fandom, meeting Kate, the thrill of each new release and what the music means to him. PLUS an inside look at the making of the cult classic parody film, The Pink Mules!
Episode 1: A Kate Miscellany
For our first episode, Seán and Dave Cross of HomeGround Magazine present each other with a selection of random artefacts and moments from Kate's almost 40 year career and chat briefly about each one. Just a small dip into the vast ocean of Kate's work, before we get more specific in future episodes!
