Colin Vearncombe about Storm Cloud Katherine

My tribute to Kate Bush (Hounds of Love being one of my absolute favourite albums) as a kind of thank you. I’ve never had the nerve to send it to her... Must do something about that. I’m still inordinately proud of this one despite a very obtuse lyric which effectively prevented it slipping into ‘pop music world’ and it took a lot of time to get right but I remember performing it live a few times with a full band and feeling something of what it must be like to be in Radiohead or Talk Talk performing something long form that really takes people on an extended journey and WORKS! Would LOVE to hear this off vinyl. (The Accused - Storm Cloud Katherine & Better Letting Go. Colinvearncombe.com website, 24 September 2013. Retrieved 20 January 2016.)
