First book in a two volume set, bringing together articles and insights from the UK fanzine Homeground. Edited by Krystyna Fitzgerald-Morris, Peter Fitzgerald-Morris and Dave Cross. Published by Crescent Moon Publishing on 25 March 2014.
The first book covers Kate Bush’s career from Wuthering Heights to The Sensual World (from the late 1970s to the late 1980s). It is a book about the reaction to her work and how her unique music has touched the lives of so many people.
The book includes an enormous amount of information about Kate Bush, accounts of every release, album, single, pop promo and appearance, as well as memories and accounts of music fandom (such as conventions, meetings, hikes, stage door encounters and video parties). It also includes material on many other pop acts and events. It features poetry, stories, letters, reviews, interviews, memoirs, cartoons, drawings, paintings and photographs. Years before the internet, HomeGround became a place where fans could discuss Bush’s music, and a place where they could publish creative writing and artwork that music inspired.
Fully illustrated with hundreds of images, including rare photographs and original artwork. Includes a timeline of Kate Bush’s career, index and a who’s who.
