Shows begin next week. Who's going? Any predictions for what she might get up to?
i'm a massive cunt, arent i?
but is it all just bloody talking heads? dont give a fuck about what elton john thinks about KB
Ah, I liked all the archive footage though, and snippets of old interviews with her.
Seeing her on Tuesday. Can't wait.
The new 'Kate Bush at the BBC' comp that followed was pure performance. She seemed to like 'Wogan' a lot.
and that he invited her to his wedding along with 600 other celebrities. but it also sounds like they've never spoken?
She's a big admirer of him, for reasons i cannot fathom.
There's such a fine line between Steeve Coogan and Alan Partridge sometimes. As for the decision to end the doc with that line of his about "submerging yourself in the bush". Jesus wept. Elton Johns contributions weren't worth a piss either were they? Other that that, as someone who has always liked KB but kept her at arms length, I really enjoyed it. It's prompted me to listen to Hounds of Love this morning.
plus how annoying was it having people listen along to her songs on a mobile phone? so stupid.
all the stuff about how kb represents all the best stuff about being a woman like being NURTURING and CARING and A MOTHER.
If that's how she interprets it for herself, then what is stupid about that? That's what music/art whatever is about: what it means to people as individuals.
it's thinking that "best stuff about being a woman" is "being NURTURING and CARING and A MOTHER."
Perhaps that's just what she feels is important about being a woman.
doesn't stop it being massively problematic.
lol such a weird multi-response to this very basic point that it's not good when people reinforce restrictive gender norms.
I found Natasha Khan's and Steve Coogan's (jokes aside) to be the most insightful. They'd actually thought about the meaning of the music and lyrics instead of just meaningless and obvious brainfarts on her cultural position and relevance- as is par for the course for most of these docs these days.
a lot of stuff i'd never seen. wonderful.
twats talking shite otherwise but that's to be expected
I just love the idea of a young Fat Sacks spinning her records, dreaming of being just like her, and going on to make some of the weirdest rap music ever. Definitely the best Kate Bush obsessive :)
Apart from that, twats wanking over otherwise good footage.
fuckin cheer up.
and all the contributors obviously feel the need to exaggerate to justify their presence on there.
'the first time i heard running up that hill i literally had to pull my car over and silently weep at the side of the road'
or the Doctor? presume she was her biographer or something
What did you think of the documentary?
I thought it was fun
So excited for Tuesday now
by the fact three talking heads played her songs on their shitty mobile speakers? Is this going to be a thing on music documentaries now?
It was a pretty good doc though, didn't really have anything new to say but it was as good a line up of talking heads as you're going to get without herself being involved.
That bashful tone whilst also knowing her own talent is what makes her so endearing.
The early morrissey interviews have similar feel
And I love listening to Kate speak...there's something quite mesmerising about her. I did agree the comments about her early years though, it was all rather am-dram. But then that was her developing as an artist.
Tricky's comments were a highlight to me...the fact that him and Kate are total polar opposites, yet music brought them together. Without sounding a bit you know, cheesy. His comments about his mum was touching stuff.
