John Doran has a bad night with his new child and tries not to fall asleep interviewing Kate over at The Quietus.
KB: … Are you knackered?
KB: Have you been up all night?
Yeah, I have.
KB: [laughs uproariously and good naturedly]
But these journalists are made of tough stuff, so he manages to keep his eyes open:
“Bush is without comparison and to compare others (whatever their gender) to her is simply facile … Kate Bush’s abilities as a songwriter just get better and better with age. The keen eye that saw a couple’s sex life writ large in their entwining clothes drying on a line in the breeze … is at evidently hard at work on every song here. She sees the erotic poetic potential in places other song writers wouldn’t dare look for it.
For most of the interview anyway …
KB: [laughing uproariously] Oh John! I’m so sorry! Are you OK? I have this image that you just want to go to sleep and not listen to me! Are you sure you’re OK?
Yeah! Yeah! I’m fine… this is just the way I sound. [flapping] I’m going to treat myself to a very large cup of coffee as soon as I put the phone down.
