The latest news about the musician Kate Bush and her work

Category: The Forum

Welcome to the new site!

Kate

Hello! We’ve been busy making the site more user-friendly and hopefully you’ll find it useful. All the news and content from the old version of the site is here, now fully searchable and archived! At last. You’ll see that Homeground and its editors will now be taking a much more active role in their online home, and will be posting news and other items along with me, as well as updating the Homeground sections as the publication of the Homeground book draws closer. Peter & Krys are moving away from admin and moderation of the forum to concentrate on everything else here, but Mike Wade and Seán will continue to help out with the busy site forum.

What else is new? Well, you’ll start to notice a lot more social network integration throughout the site. You can comment on certain posts if you want (we’ll trial that for a while, see how it goes). There’s a simple but brilliant new video gallery that brings a lot of Youtube videos together in one place. There’s features on Kate-related artists and a new Gig calendar we’ll be updating to let you know where events are happening. Basically the new site gives us endless new ways to bring you all the Kate Bush news and information you need! Thanks for all the support! Seán, Peter, Krys & Dave

“The Thrill & The Hurting” new book by Kate fans

Kyla writes to tell us that over the past year she has been helping to put together a book entitled “The Thrill & The Hurting” which is a lovingly compiled anthology of poems and art inspired by Kate’s work. The book is 6.99 GBP and will soon be available to order from the Morning Fog Press site here (from the end of October) or from this link at Amazon and also WHsmith. Advance orders on the book have already totalled 40, out of the 100 that will be available. There are 66 pages and colour artworks including a dedication page artwork by Debi Bowes (Debi’s work has most famously graced the pages of HomeGround magazine). Morning Fog Press logoThe foreword is by Krys (of HomeGround) and the blurb on the back taken from her foreword says :- ‘Between these covers you will find poetry and artwork by those so inspired by Kate’s music, with themes of love, life and broken hearts, just as you will find in her music.’ The book has been created by the forum members at this site’s HomeGround/KBN&I web community and co-edited by American prize winning poet, Collin Kelley. Design is by Jason Carty. Kyla et al have set up Morning Fog Press (site coming soon, logo left also by Jason Carty) to facilitate ISBN’s and further publications. Congratulations to all involved! The book, which has contributors from all over the world, will be officially launched in London on the 4th of November. You can also be sure that one of these special limited editions will be reserved for Kate herself! (Thanks Kyla, visit her Myspace page here, click on the book title above left to see the full cover)
