About this deal

I was big into the Pink Floyd and Kate Bush came up a few times as someone that David Gilmour, gutiarist and singer for Floyd had discovered or premoted. The arguably clever title of the book is ultimately a bit restrictive in the sense that one feels that there is a bit of unnecessary padding just to reach the convenient 50 chapters.

Her early family life is only briefly touched on, her brother is mostly discussed in his role as a photographer, she is partner with one member of her band and suddenly she’s married to another one and they have a son.Running Up That Hill, by Tom Doyle, is an insightful and far more personal look at Kate Bush than what we usually get in writings about her. Online since 2010 it is one of the fastest-growing and most respected music-related publications on the net. As much a ground zero moment for pop as the Pistols were for the denim brigade, Wuthering Heights, a chart hit not in 4/4 time, sang about an eighteenth-century troubadour should have been an anomaly not a blueprint for a career that has now stretched out over nearly five decades and shows no sign of ending. The way this biography is woven together from past interviews, chats with her nearest and dearest and the author’s interviews and run-ins with the illusive chanteuse is fantastic.

the founders of The Most Wuthering Heights Day Ever, a gathering of people who wear Bush-style red dresses and dance to the song. 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.Bush’s singularity makes fans feel like members of the biggest secret society in music, though it’s one they now share with the Gen Z-ers who discovered her last spring, when the 1985 single Running Up That Hill was featured on the Netflix series Stranger Things. 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. Kate’s determination to produce herself and her apparent disinterest in touring (post The Tour of Life) are both fairly well known traits but somehow Doyle imbues them with a freshness.
