Newsbits: A review in The Independent of an album by LSK which references Kate on one track here…Mark Donovan tells us that he came across this in the magazine “Sound & Vision” (June ’03). It’s in a story/interview with James Guthrie, regarding his mutlichannel (surround sound) SACD remix of Pink Floyd’s “The Dark Side of the Moon”. Guthrie co-produced “The Wall” and has worked with Floyd since then. Here’s what he said when asked if he wanted to remix another artist for multichannel CD: “You know what I would jump on immediately? I would love to do a surround sound mix of Kate Bush’s “Hounds of Love”. Kate is a dear friend of mine, and I’ve spoken to her about it – but I don’t think she’s ready to let go of it yet.” C’mon Kate, let him have it!….In the NME on 29th March 2003 – “Rock: What not to wear, “…As for the girls, note to Geri Haliwell, the only female who ever looked good in a leotard is Kate Bush”. And also in the NME on the 19th April 2003: Goldfrapp‘s Top 10 Songs/Albums. Number 6 – Hounds Of Love “The entire album reminds me of my first E. I’ll have to chose the title track ‘cos I can’t remember any of the titles. That’s probably because it’s associated with my first E as well!” (thanks to Katie in Australia)

Tristan just completed all the instruments pages on his French Kate site from A to Fairlight, including info (and several pictures of him playing the instruments!) here….Jamie asks that I mention a new club night that is starting up on Saturday 2nd August calledElectro Rox at somewhere called The Pleasure Unit in Bethnal Green, London. “We are two boys who both love Kate and slip Kate into our DJ set at oppurtunistic moments. Any Kate fans more than welcome, it’s free, see here for requests!”
