Kate Bush – Live!

Well OK not exactly, but as blimmin’ well close as you are going to get this side of 2014 when our Kate last played Hammersmith. Cloudbusting have been on my radar for a while but I finally got to see them last week at the Half Moon in Putney. You are never quite sure what you are going to get with a tribute band but I am very pleased to say that they did NOT disappoint! Mandy Watson nails the vocals without sounding forced. Her passion for Kate’s music is clear and performed songs from 1979’s The Kick Inside to 2005’s Aerial. Being at one of Kate’s early 1970’s venues with the KT Bush Band made it extra special (although I’m pretty sure the stage has moved since I was last there in the 90’s!). If you are a Kate fan then Cloudbusting are a must see, and if you are even luckier you may get to see Del Palmer perform with them!
