300 Kates break a record

The NME reports that “300 Kate Bush fans gathered in a park in Brighton over last weekend to break the record for the most lookalikes re-enacting the famous video for her 1978 single Wuthering Heights.”

This was the final rehearsal:

This was the instructional dance video:

LATER: It seems Guiness don’t think Kate is iconic enough for this to constitute a “proper” record … The video re-enactment thing catches on

    They should have worn the white dress.

    H I L A R I O U S wish I could have been there and hope it gives Kate a good giggle too!

  3. Mark says:

    Not iconic enough?! Should they have dressed up like that hack Madonna and all do “like a virgin?” Would that have been good enough?!

  4. Keith says:

    What was the previous record?

  5. neil mayor says:

    this could grow and grow…just sheer abandonment and joy and celebration of a true icon.
    Same time next year….count me in.Call me a perfectonist but here’s always one that waves n the wrong direction!

    Sorry but you don’t come from Lindsay Kemp school and it shows. This is hilarious but is not a tribute to the talent of Kate Bush. Kate’s early performances were really amazing. She has learnt the best from her teacher and has shown a grace and an originality that no other artist , at that time , had reached. Toyah , Lene Lovich , Siouxsie came after Kate and learned from her, even Annie Lennox admitted that Kate had a great influence on her … Kate studied a lot to reach this , to express her talent… Now this dance is hilarious but extremely banal.
