Kate Bush (Singer)

shouldn't be made . You know... they're just ... as important as... um doctors, and priests ... or maybe not as important sometimes, and yet they have this huge aura of almost god-like quality about them, just because their craft makes a lot of money. And at the same time it is a forced importance — you know, football stars and theatre stars — It is man-made so the press can feed off it.

Excerpts from an interview in MOJO magazine (3 November 2005) as quoted in()
Kate Bush quote
I do think I go out of my way to be a very normal person and I just find it frustrating that people think that I'm some kind of weirdo reclusive that never comes out into the world. Y'know, I'm a very strong person and I think that's why actually I find it really infuriating when I read, 'She had a nervous breakdown' or 'She's not very mentally stable, just a weak, frail little creature'.
Kate Bush people
There were so many times I thought, "I'll have the album finished this year, definitely, we'll get it out this year." Then there were a couple of years where I thought, "I'm never gonna do this." If I could make albums quicker, I'd be on a roll wouldn't I? Everything just seems to take so much time. I don't know why. Time... evaporates.

There was a story that some EMI execs had come down to see you and you'd said something like: "Here's what I've been working on," and then produced some cakes from your oven. True? "No! I don't know where that came from. I thought that was quite funny actually. It presents me as this homely creature, which is all right, isn't it?"
Kate Bush funny
For the last 12 years, I've felt really privileged to be living such a normal life. It's so a part of who I am. It's so important to me to do the washing, do the Hoovering. Friends of mine in the business don't know how dishwashers work. For me, that's frightening. I want to be in a position where I can function as a human being. Even more so now where you've got this sort of truly silly preoccupation with celebrities. Just because somebody's been in an ad on TV, so what? Who gives a toss?

For me, having a child is a really great responsibility because you've got something there that is depending on you for information and love until a certain age when it goes to school.

I think probably the only thing that is around in these songs is that I was really lonely when I wrote a lot of them. But it was really by my own choosing because I was devoting myself to songwriting and dancing and I wasn't really going out and seeing people.
Kate Bush writing
I'm a very strong person, and I think that's why, actually, I find it really infuriating when I read, 'She had a nervous breakdown' or 'She's not very mentally stable, just a weak, frail little creature.'

Out on the wiley, windy moors Wed roll and fall in green. You had a temper like my jealousy: Too hot, too greedy. How could you leave me, When I needed to possess you? I hated you. I loved you, too.

Creativity comes from the freedom to fail. And freedom to fail comes from experimentation, and thats what gives something its individuality. And, you know, I think her courage, which is the positive way of interpreting it, or bloody-mindedness, which is the negative, is part of what gives her real value as an artist.Peter Gabriel
Kate Bush freedom
Its funny no one ever applies the term progressive rock to Kate Bush, but to me its prog. Its the same think I love about the best prog, its like, the really sort of brash stuff, people showing technical ability, I have no interest in, but the experimental dreamy stuff, that sort of came from many places at once, I set her stuff next to, well next to Janis, is the obvious comparisonGuy Garvey

I was teaching at the Dance Centre in Covent Garden. Kate turned up, dressed very properly in her ballet tights and things, and her hair straight back, looking very, very professional indeed, a very, very serious student. But as timid as hell, and of course she took a place at the back of the class, you know, I had to coax her forward. I mean she was extremely shy, extremely timid, and of course the first thing I had to do was, you know, bring her out of herself, give her courage. I have to say that once Kate actually started dancing, she was a wild thing, she was wild.One day, some months after knowing her, I got back to my homeand there was this LP pushed under the door, The Kick Inside — and there, dedicated to me was this beautiful song Moving — I didn’t know she had any aspirations of being a singer. She never talked about herself.Lindsay Kemp

I had a listen, I was intriguedby this strange voice, and I went to her house, met her parents down in Kent, and she played me, it must have been forty or fifty songs, on tape, and I thought, I should try to do something.We were making — Pink Floyd was making the Wish You Were Here album, and I think we had the record company people down at Abbey Road, in number 3, and I said to them Do you want to hear something Ive got? And they said sure, so we found another room, and I played it to them, The Man with the Child in His Eyes, and they said Yep, thank you – well have it.David Gilmour, on first hearing 15 year old Kates demo tapes, and meeting with her.

Kate Bush makes a record, and you don’t hear from her. And you play the stuff she has made, and one day you are surprised, and she brings out something else, and shes been quietly working away on it, for however long she wanted to work on it, and I love that. I love the willingness to be quiet, until its time to speak — which is something that she does over and over.Neil Gaiman
Kate Bush love
Oh! England, my Lionheart! Dropped from my black Spitfire to my funeral barge. Give me one kiss in apple-blossom. Give me one wish, and Id be wassailing In the orchard, my English rose, Or with my shepherd, wholl bring me home.

Take away the love and the anger, And a little piece of hope holding us together. Looking for a moment thatll never happen, Living in the gap between past and future. Take away the stone and the timber, And a little piece of rope wont hold it together.

The more I think about sex, the better it gets. Here we have a purpose in life: Good for the blood circulation, Good for releasing the tension, The root of our reincarnations.

The working relationship was never a problem, you know. We always worked together reasonably well, you know, we always argue, and we always have and always will. Ive always argued with Kate, and shes always argued with me, but I guess thats just the way it is, you know, so I feel Im emotionally involved with it all, to a great extent, you know, much more so than most people would imagine. Not only did we have a personal relationship, and I work with her — I really love her music, I really do to the point, where I virtually work with nobody else — because nobody else comes close.Del Palmer, on the break up of his personal relationship with Kate, and his continued work with her musically.
