On Sunday 20th September, The Strongroom Bar in Shoreditch, London is hosting a special event to celebrate 30 Years since the release of Kate’s Hounds of Love album. From the press release:

“Strongroom presents…“BEHIND THE TRACKS”: KATE BUSH – ‘HOUNDS OF LOVE’ The inside story behind the classic album

SUNDAY 20th SEPTEMBER 2015 2pm-5pm

A series of classic album playbacks with in-depth analysis from key players, based at the legendary Strongroom recording studios in Shoreditch, London. Celebrating 30 years since its release, the second in this series of events turns the spotlight on Hounds of Love by Kate Bush. Strongroom resident, Haydn Bendall, was one of the engineers on ‘Hounds Of Love’ which is widely regarded as Kate Bush’s best work and is regularly voted as one of the greatest albums of all time.

Recorded and mixed in her own studio which she built in in her back garden Kate Bush’s 5th studio album took a whole year to mix and overdub, but eventually entered the UK album chart at number 1. Hosting the event is legendary rock writer Mick Wall. Author of best-selling biographies of The Doors, Lou Reed and Led Zeppelin, to name a few, he has also produced and presented a number of award-winning TV and radio documentaries.

Mick knew and interviewed Kate during the long gestation of Hounds Of Love. He has written about her many times over the years. Haydn and Mick will re-live the making of ‘Hounds Of Love’, discussing the technical obstacles that were overcome and the pressures facing Kate after the poor performance of her preceding album. Rediscover this classic landmark album like never before with key personnel and high quality audio playback on Rega RP8 Turntable and Quested LT10 Speakers.

Following the Q&A session, there will be an intimate performance from the ‘spine-tinglingly good’ Kate Bush tribute act Cloudbusting. Tickets are available for this exclusive event priced at just £30 which includes entry to the album talk, album playback and band performance.” Tickets can be ordered here.
