Lest you have it twisted that the only thing keeping the elusive genius Kate Bush from performing the first U.S. show of her 40-year career was the okay of the guy in charge of Coachella, the singer-songwriter’s spokesperson has issued a corrective statement.
There are very few performers I’d follow into the Coachella Valley to watch amidst sandstorms, heat, and a sea of festival goers. Two of them—Prince and David Bowie—are dead and the other—Kate Bush—was rejected by Coachella’s C.E.O because “nobody is going to understand” her.
On August 26, 2014, Kate Bush played her first full concert since 1979. In the 22-show residency that followed at London’s Hammersmith Apollo, called Before the Dawn, Bush played a three-act set, with one focused on an assortment of songs, one that recreated the narrative suite on her classic Hounds of Love album’s…
The good Kate Bush giveth: As an accompaniment to her three-part live album Before the Dawn (out November 25), Bush has newly released a video for “And Dream of Sheep,” a song that first appeared on 1985's Hounds of Love, but was recorded with Bush singing live while swimming in a water tank at Pinewood Studios for…
In a rare interview, Kate Bush—queen of the moors and my dreams—was asked about how much influence current politics, in both the U.K. and the U.S., has had on her songwriting. Her answer, thank Goddess, is none at all.
If you, like me, looked into flying to London to attend “Before the Dawn”—Kate Bush’s first live concert since 1979—in 2014, only to discover that tickets sold out in minutes and were being sold by scalpers for $1000, take heart! There might still be a way for you to experience the show.

In 2014, the BBC aired a one-hour documentary on Kate Bush that we failed to report on. For this Kate Bush oversight, we deeply apologize.
Uh-oh! Mariah Carey is sick! And during her favorite season, too!
The pryce of wychcraft olde and crude, the hovel of legendary songstress Kate Bush shall be reclaimed by the sea, unless she invokes the furious magicks of the ancient builders, i.e. hires construction workers to immediately reinforce the foundation of her seaside home.
Selena Gomez posted a very artistic and ambiguous photo of herself
being sacrificed to a curtain monster frolicking in the sun on her Instagram yesterday and the internet erupted in idle speculation about what it could all mean. Is Selena finally taking control of her career and shedding her good-girl image? Is she…
For the love of all that is holy (i.e. for the love of Kate Bush), this dude singing "Wuthering Heights" in its original key is one of the most beautiful things you will ever EVER witness. It's haunting, it's stunning, it's everything a Kate Bush fan could possibly dream of beyond dancing in a field with Kate Bush…
Dear readers, thank you for spending another Sunday with my cranky ass. Let's revisit all that we've learned this weekend, shall we?
Jane Czyzselska thinks that women in music are rarely referred to as geniuses. The Times of London writer claims that Rufus Wainwright gets plied with the "genius" accolade frequently, while similarly blessed female musicians like Kate Bush, Bjork and Goldfrapp are not given the genius label. Um, Jane? Goldfrapp?…
