Sometimes I feel that Kate Bush sits inside her own music genre – there is and never has been, anyone quite like her.
I vividly remember helping (or hindering as a young child does) my mum in the kitchen one day; the radio was on and Wuthering Heights was played. I was transfixed from start to finish. It was divine; celestial.
Kate Bush became my vocal role model thereon. (Yes, when imitating Kate Bush from an early age one does have to be careful not to concern the neighbours; mine thought she heard the cat crying).
I have loved her alternative approach to popular music ever since. Frankly she rocks – like an angel.
