Some of the greatest singers in the world…you can spot their influences. But Kate Bush has no mother or father. I’d be an average musician if it wasn’t for her,” Tricky says in an article on how Kate’s 1978 album, The Kick Inside, changed his life. “Her music has always sounded like dreamland to me…I have so many copies of The Whole Story lying around the world.” He says that his track Strugglin’ was inspired by Breathing, “just the texture, the suffocation of it”. He concludes by writing: “When I hear The Kick Inside now, I still wish I’d written those songs. I don’t believe in God, but if I did, her music would be my bible. Her music sounds religious to me. She should be treasured more then The Beatles. That she isn’t is probably down to her own personality, because she can walk away from everything, and not make albums, and I so respect her for that. Just to live your life, and not play the game – to me, that’s success.

Very nearly got thrown out of this gig for eating chips three hours before the doors opened.
Also had to ride a bus up and down between Bournemouth & Christchurch three times to find the venue. Was told the bus went past the Academy. Wasn’t told that the bus route had been changed because of roadworks.
