Cloudbusting -- Kate Bush In Her Own Words

Part IV: Sources And Credits

This in no way should be considered a complete or recommended list of Kate Bush sources. What is listed here is sources that I have access to, and well as the sources I need, when known. Non-interview articles (reviews, etc) are not included. For a more complete list of Kate sources see back issues of Homeground fanzine.

Where the interviews have also been reprinted in fanzines, books, or bootlegs, I have noted this after the name of the interview. Sometimes they don't give the original date and source, so I have included an Unknown section for articles where I don't know the original sources. Any further information would be appreciated.

Sources are followed by the date of the source, then the name of the interviewer, then the name of the person who transcribed the source into computer form, then the name of any fan magazine or book where the article is reprinted. The most common transcribers are given abbreviations, IED for Andrew Marvick and RH for Ronald Hill.


Why aren't there lots of great Kate Bush books? Since, as far as I know, Kate has never been interviewed for a book, all of the quotes from these books are originally from other sources, and, where known, have been marked as such.

KATE BUSH COMPLETE - Book containing the sheet music to all of Kate's songs up to 1986. Also contains separate lyrics, a great chronology, many photos, and a discography. Although it doesn't contain any interviews with Kate, it was invaluable to creating this document and is highly recommended, especially if you don't have access to all of Kate's lyrics.

SH - Secret History of Kate Bush (And The Strange Art Of Pop) - 1983. Intellectual (as opposed to intelligent) book about Kate's family history, story, and fans. For someone who rambles on about fan obsession he seems pretty obsessed himself - "So I turn Kate's glossy pages, crackling and soapy to the touch, paper which seems limp and heavy and wet with realism, as if her images were oozing and perspiring into my fascinated inspection" YEEEETCH!!!!

TWS - Kate Bush - The Whole Story (1988). Despite appearances, not a sanctioned book, and certainly not the whole story. Positive, but contains numerous factual and publishing errors. For "The Whole Story" on this book, see HOMEGROUND numbers 33 and 34.

AVD - Kate Bush - A Visual Documentary (1988). Perhaps the best liked, non-official book.

LOVE - Kate Bush - With Love (1988). Reprints of Kate-related articles, interviews, and reviews, some positive, some negative. Interesting mainly to see how the music press has reacted to Kate over the years.


Kate has fan magazines all over the world. This is only a list of the fanzines I have access to and have used for source material.

KBC The Kate Bush Club. Indispensible. Contains articles by Kate and her family, as well as wonderful photos. I have tried to use quotes from here as often as possible, since these are presumably the closest to what Kate actually feels. Unfortunately, back issues are hard to find, and most of us have to be content with photo-copies. How about reprinting all of these in book form???

I only have originals of issues 2,5,8,11,13,16,17,18,23 so if you have any originals you don't need, let me know! The source of all these in computer form was The Garden, so if you have Cloudbusting you have all the direct quotes from Kate from the Kate Bush Club. However, the originals have many features which make them very worthwhile to have, including those GREAT pictures (wooo....).

The KBC and Homeground together sponsored the 1990 Kate Bush Convention on November 17, 1990. The questions were from the audience members and the transcription is from Andrew Marvick.

This is a list of all the KBCs as of April 1991. This list first appeared in Cariad Kate.

Homeground. Excellent independent fanzine. Contains news, discussion, poetry, artwork, etc. I have from issues 31 up. An interview appeared in 1985, by Tony Myatt, trans. by IED.

BREAKTHROUGH - I have access to issues 5, 6, and 7 and have transcribed several interviews reprinted in this fanzine. Issue 5 contained the Kate Connection interview by Abby Sheffield which may or may not have been originally from Breakthrough.

SB - Still Breathing (formerly Breakthrough). Great Canadian fanzine that contains all the normal stuff. Also has lots of great reprints of interviews with Kate, which of course are credited here to the original sources. I have every issue since it became Still Breathing.

CARIAD - Cariad Kate. Great Welsh fan magazine. Contains the usual stuff plus lots of great reprints of interviews. I have access to issues 1-13, except 5. Also contains a superb collection of interviews with Peter Swales with Kate, Paddy, and Del in issues 3-5.

Reaching Out. I don't have any copies of this fanzine, but an interview reprinted in this fanzine was originally from the KFNX interview. A few quotes, however were not included in the KFNX transcription I have, so they have been credited to Reaching Out.

Missing Interviews

Missing Print Interviews

------------------------ THIS LIST IS SHOULD NOT BE CONSIDERED COMPLETE, ESPECIALLY BEFORE 1984. Use this list if you are looking for Kate Bush articles, like in a library, use the "have" list if you are looking through Kate Bush articles. It is based on the Medialog in Homeground (which I only have back to 1983) as well as the bibliography, which only goes up to 1983.

Missing Radio Interviews

This list is based on Homeground's "Media Log". I don't have access to the first five issues so this list does NOT include pre-1983 interviews, which are the most desirable. Also, several of these interviews are probably the same as the "unknown" interviews listed above.

re Single File. 
		"Radio 1".  Aug. 10, '85.  Short phone interview by Richard

interviews with Kate 
        "Kate Bush The Whole Story".  LBC (London Commercial).  Dec.
'87.   "Homeground" says: "Good 45 min. bio sketch by Kerry Juby from
his 'In Other Words' material, with additional interview material from
Kate'.  I don't know if this contains original material, but have
included it in case it does. 
         "Shop Assistance".  July 30, '88.  Interview about charity

missing television interviews

This list is based on the comprehensive list of Kate videos included in "The Garden", so it is probably fairly complete. In bold is Andrew Marvick's comments of the interviews.

        Eight o'clock news report, on La Cinq (French TV).  Apr. 10,

I DON'T HAVE THIS, BUT I THINK THIS IS THE I-V WHERE KATE MENTIONS HER PLANS TO PRODUCE ALAIN STIVELL TRACKS. "France Inter". Date Unknown, may be a radio I-V and may be the same as the "Profile 6" interview. I HAVE "PROFILE 6", WHICH DATES FROM FALL '85. "The Late, Late Show". Mar. 25, '78. Not known if I-V is included. I DON'T HAVE THIS. "Music Box". Circa 1985-86. I DON'T HAVE THIS, UNLESS (AS IS POSSIBLE) IT IS THE SAME AS THE "ROCKLINE" INTERVIEW BELOW. "Prisoner of Conscience". Dec. 6, '89. 2 short spots for Amnesty Int. I DON'T HAVE THESE. "Rough Guide To Europe". Aug. 22, '88. I DON'T HAVE THESE. "Tonight" (BBC current affairs program). Mar. 16, '78. I DON'T HAVE THIS. "Voor de Vuist Weg" (Dutch TV show). Not known whether includes I-V. I DON'T HAVE THIS. I ASKED PETER ABOUT IT SPECIFICALLY (SINCE HIS IS THE ONLY SOURCE FOR THE LISTING), AND HE COULDN'T REMEMBER IT OFF-HAND AT ALL.

Missing Promotional Material

If anyone has any additional PROMO material that I don't know about, please let me know!

Versions Of Cloudbusting

I am attempting to make Cloudbusting available in as many different computer versions as possible. I would appreciate it if you could get it through the Love-Hounds or other networks, and if you could spread it around as much as possible so that I don't have to make copies.


PRINTED - I regret that I cannot normally make printed copies, due to the size and mailing expenses. Now is the time to buddy up to that computer nerd and have him print out one of the computer versions.

Rather than using a standard three ring binder, you may want to consider using a three-ring binder from a photo album. These are normally quite nicer. I use one from Price Club (item #4923) and it works out nicely. Also photocopies (hopefully color) and other photos in between the pages help break up the text and make it look more like a "real" book.

TEX - A version for the TEX program may become available on Love- Hounds.

AMIGA - This is the main version as it is the computer I have. It features fully integrated sound and pictures. All files are compressed, but can be used without manually un-compressing them, and can be easily un-compressed to print nicely or to transfer to another format.

TEXT - Just the text files, and separate GIF files. Takes up more disks since these are not compressed, but can be easily transferred to any computer. If you have the AMIGA version, you can create just the text. If you have the IBM version, you can create this simply be de- compressing the files.

WORDPERFECT 4.2 - The master files, includes underlining, which the text versions doesn't. It is available on Love-Hounds in IBM WORDPERFECT 4.2 format, which loads right into IBM WORDPERFECT 4.2, 5.0, 5.1, and any later versions. It can also be loaded into the Amiga and presumably other computer versions using the IMPORT command (CTRL- F5)

POSTSCRIPT - A postscript version may become available on Love- Hounds.

IBM - I may not ever make this version. This would be set up for use on two or three 3 inch 720k disks, but can be easily copied to larger storage drives or can fairly easily be copied down to 5 inch 360k disks. Includes integrated text, pictures, and sampled sound on ANY IBM compatible.

MAC - I may not end up making this version. This version will either consist of separate text, picture, and sound files, or an integrated version using HYPERCARD 2.0. I can run and create MAC programs on my Amiga, but I don't have a disk drive so I cannot make copies of them, except through the modem.

ATARI ST - Use the text version or WORDPERFECT version.

OTHER COMPUTERS - Suggest you download the TEXT version, or WORDPERFECT version, if your computer has Wordperfect.


I can be reached on Love-Hounds or at the address below. If you have any sources that you feel should be included you can send me a copy or just the individual quote and source and where you think it should go. Of course, if you already have them in computer form, that is preferred. Since this is being distributed mainly in computer form, there is no reason why there shouldn't be new editions when I get new quotes or to fix mistakes. I am sure there are many mistakes so please be kind to them. If you REALLY like this please DON'T be compelled to send money (though I accept gifts!) as I don't really want to profit off this as these are really Kate's words.

Cloudbusting was made possible, or at least much easier, by many people who contributed generously:

Andrew Marvick
Who created and provided The Garden files, which saved me countless hours of typing and enhance the full disk versions greatly. He also helped me obtain many of the radio and television interviews.
Ray Russell
Who provided early support for the project, let me borrow (for a LONG time) much of his Kate stuff, and helped with many ideas.
Jorn Barger
Who helped edit Edition 2.
Ed Suranyi
Who provided me with many interviews.
Don Provancer
Who, despite not even being a Kate fan, spent hours scanning many of the included photos.
Chris and Vickie
Who supplied many of the television interviews.
Jackie Zuccuni
Who supplied four interviews from BREATHTHOUGH.
Ken Bookstein
Who let me borrow his sound digitizer.
Larry Yaeger
Who creates the Postscript version,
Ken SaintJohn
Who provided many of the photos included here.
Clive Backman
Who provided me the great Classic Albums interview.
Charlie Distefino
Who let me use his photo digitizer.
Rick Thompson
