Kate Bush's The Ninth Wave: Ether Signposts #52/52a - A Year In The Country
Well, the year is nearing to its close and so in a rounding the circle manner I thought I would return to The Ninth Wave, the themed collection of tracks on the B-side or second half of Kate Bush's 1985 album The Hounds of Love album. I was thinking, for myself what would I consider to be some of the earliest roots of the flipside of bucolia or otherly pastoralism that A Year In The Country has explored? Well, I expect it would be something of a multiple-sided coin that took in possibly Bagpuss, other Smallfilm work and interconnected television from my younger years... ...but probably more likely the work of Kate Bush and in particular The Hounds of Love. And even more in particular The Ninth Wave.
