About this deal

Like completely out there fiction and sci fi, really unusual theatricality is not something I can always get on board with, but it was all so ground breaking, that’s it’s just an intrinsic part of female British 80s music. I know all about him from his many albums, the documentaries, podcasts and dozens and dozens of books I've read about him over the past 30-odd years. Doyle concludes his contemporary military fantasy trilogy with this ambitious installment (after The Left-Hand Way). Of course, if you’ve been lucky enough to sit down and interview Kate in person, then you have a distinct advantage and that’s exactly what the author of Running Up That Hill: 50 Visions of Kate Bush – journalist Tom Doyle – got the opportunity to do in 2005, commissioned by UK’s Mojo magazine, a publication Kate had agreed to talk to, to promote her Aerial album. An entertaining piece on the Cloudbusting video aside, there’s a cut and paste to the chapters as though they’ve been published somewhere before.

This makes the book highly accessible and easy to dip in and out of, while also ensuring that every aspect of the artist's unique story is covered.He draws extensively on an interview he conducted in 2005, a privilege granted to few journalists but one which seems warranted based on this book.

To go from TOGWT, to Wogan and Aspel, to Saturday kids shows, to TOTP, to comedy dedications, to the rave and clubbing scene twice. Featuring details from the author’s one-on-one conversations with Kate—as well as vignettes of her key songs, albums, videos, and concerts—this artful, candid, and often brutally funny portrait introduces a refreshingly real Kate Bush. Each vision focuses on a song, album, a point in Kate’s career, an interview transcript or recollections. Long-term Kate Bush devotees and new teenage fans won over by Stranger Things will both find enlightenment in Tom Doyle’s prismastic portrait of the elusive artist.Most purchases from business sellers are protected by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which give you the right to cancel the purchase within 14 days after the day you receive the item.

Aerial would prove both a gift and a curse for Bush – personally fulfilling sure, but with an overly self-conscious eye in the abstract. Featuring details from the author's one-on-one conversations with Kateas well as vignettes of her key songs, albums, videos, and concertsthis artful, candid, and often brutally funny portrait introduces a refreshingly real Kate Bush. Even that is not straightforward, since in the latter half of Bush’s career, she’s said very little.
