The Chop House: Revealing Kate Bush Concert Documentary from 1980

With “The Chop House,” we explore classic performances from bands with — you know — “chops.” Genres like progressive rock, art-rock, jazz-fusion — they’re nearly extinct in our current music culture. These days, we live (and consume art) impatiently, favoring a quick fix over a challenge. But here at Hidden Track, we refuse to let the dazzling, confrontational spirit of these wonderful bands die.

Kate Bush

Most pop fans know Kate Bush for her brief moment of stardom in the mid-80s, via The Hounds of Love and its iconic single “Running Up that Hill (A Deal with God).” But, like her sometimes-collaborator Peter Gabriel, Bush is an artist ill-defined by her commercial success: Her ten studio albums rank among the most diverse and musically rich in the history of rock. She’s part art-rock sorceress, part pop provocateur, part fairy-tale prog princess.

Bush is also infamous for avoiding the spotlight: She very rarely grants interviews, and she hasn’t toured since 1979. But that only adds to her sensual, artful mystique.

This German concert documentary is one of the best pieces of Bush-related footage in existence, featuring awesome concert footage from that sole tour, along with intimate interviews from both Bush and her family.

(A particularly great moment is when Bush talks about the influence of her older brothers’ prog-rock record collection. Another wonderful segment: Bush performing “Room for the Life” as she contorts in a heart-shaped bed, dressed in sparkly green spandex.)
