February 1st sees the publication of a brand new magazine special all about Kate from the makers of Classic Pop Magazine. It will be available to order online and will also be on sale in newsagents in the UK and Ireland – and yes Seán from this site has been interviewed for this special and also wrote a short piece for it.
If you order online there is also an option to buy a fan pack with 4 art cards included.
Classic Pop tells us: “The 4 art cards are printed on thick glossy card and feature some stunning photos from a performance in the Netherlands, a photo shot in Italy, her performance on the Saturday Night Live Show in 1978 and of course a gorgeous close up”
From the Press Release:
In this special edition 132-page magazine, we celebrate 40 years of Kate Bush, who’s unique brand of songwriting and performing has bewitched the globe since her debut single, ‘Wuthering Heights’ made UK No. 1 in 1978.
Inside, we explore Bush’s career, from her wide-eyed beginnings touted as a child genius, through to the critical and commercial success of her incredible canon of work, and on to 2014’s triumphant return to the stage for her 22-night residency in London’s Hammersmith Apollo.
We get the inside track via interviews with KT Bush Band member Brian Bath and session musician David Paton, official photographer Guido Harari, KateBushnews.com founder Seán Twomey, plus there’s a 1978 archive interview with Kate herself.
Elsewhere, we take a detailed look at Bush’s musical collaborations, we pass judgement on the finest of her output in our Top 40, and we offer in-depth classic album profiles from across her career including ‘The Kick Inside’, ‘Never For Ever’, ‘Hounds Of Love’, ‘The Red Shoes’ and ‘Aerial’.
Lastly, Seán Twomey offers up a fascinating look at the storytelling within Kate’s songs, there’s features on ‘The Tour Of Life’ and the ‘Before the Dawn’ shows, and we handpick our selection of vinyl treasures to be found within Kate’s stunning catalogue.
We hope you enjoy the issue!
