The major Dutch music magazine OOR has issued its list of the 100 most influential female artists of the last 100 years. The list was put together by critics and pop journalists. Kate ranks at number 3, with Aretha Franklin (2) and Madonna (1). An accompanying article mentions her “rich imagination” with “albums full of divine songs”. Chrissie Hynde was interviewed by OOR for this special poll and when asked about Kate’s very high showing she commented “I love Kate. I know she has influenced a lot of female singers, but not me. I like her, as a person, a lot.” (thanks to Marcel Nahapiet)

New Kate Dance Remix: Look out for a 12″ Single by ‘Beyond’, called ‘Still Dream’, a dance re-mix of Cloudbusting featuring Kate’s vocal. It has apparently already been played on BBC Radio 1. White label promo only – available in “good dance record stores”. (thanks to Sebastian who posted this on the guestbook)
