KT Cloudbusting -- Kate Bush In Her Own Words



"Violin'' is for all the mad fiddlers, from ``paganini'' to ``old nick'' himself. (1980, KBC 7)


*And there's a great line in that album. Let me just read the notes on the inside of the album, ``give me the banshees for b.v.s.'' immediately I looked at that and I thought, susie and the banshees, kate bush, doesn't work [Kate laughs]. What is that about?

Well unfortunately, [??? Inaudible] great for using such words like this. I mean, for instance, ``it's the police'' has a completely different meaning now because of the group called The Police. And I'm referring to the original Banshees who are, in fact sort of, [??? Fran. St. Tars] from Ireland, who would only cry when death was eminent. And so it's just meant to be very eerie creatures singing the backing vocals. (1980, Never For Ever Debut)
