Cloudbusting -- Kate
Bush In Her Own Words
John Carter Bush
Who is john carder bush? Where were the photographs on the
``moving'' and ``lakeside''
- John is my brother, the eldest in the family. I have one other
brother, Paddy, and no sisters. John took the photographs used on the posters,
and they were taken in Holland. (1979, KBC 3)
- I'm very close to him. He is an inspiration. Being my brother he is
someone I can always talk to... what worries me is that sometimes Jay is
portrayed as a Svengali who is black and evil. And he's not at all. He's very
beautiful and sensitive and I love him very much. (????, SH)
There's some curiosity about your family's contribution to the
sensual world. could you tell us about their role?
- I suppose what's really great is that I'm surrounded by very
talented people who are related to me, and they're really close friends.
Obviously John's photographs are really good, and that's why I work with him.
He's a great photographer, and because we know each other so well, it's such a
relaxed atmosphere. (1989, Reaching
Have you got people around you who'll tell you something's rubbish?
- My brother Jay, who's been with me since I was writing stuff that
really embarrasses me, he'd let me know for sure... Yeah, there's a few I can
really trust. (1979, NME)
think my favorite one's [Song] ``houdini'' ... But I think the emotional
whatever it is that getting across on that track is very inspired and very
dynamic and I still find it very exciting. (1985, kate bush con. Paddy and jay
Your brother paddy bush plays numerous instruments in the sensual
world. We talked about his interest in many different kinds of instruments.
Your other brother john carder bush did the cover photos and that's just like
more of a natural extension of the family?
- I suppose what's really great is I'm surrounded by very talented
people who also -
Are related to you.
- Yeah! And they're really close friends. Obviously, John's
photographs are really good, and that's why I work with him - he's a great
photographer. Because we know each other so well it's such a relaxed
atmosphere. (1989, KFNX)
