    Although I must have seen this in 1979, I didn’t remember it, so this is a wonderful little nugget of discovery.

    My only quibble is that I am not convinced that Kate’s clothing here represents the middle-class English girl’s image of the (British) working class. I think you were spot-on with the Fiddler-on-the-Roof reference, and I think that’s the image she’s going for rather than anything more materially relevant to 1970s British society. There were pretty well-established representations available (I’m thinking Andy Capp in The Mirror, for example) which I think she would have gone for if she wanted a standard working class character.

      I confess, if we have to do a Marmite/Vegemite with Kate and Tori, I opt for the former and will be bookmarking Dreams of Orgonon.

      (Actually, I like both Vegemite and Marmite.)

    Sin of sins – I’ve never actually listened to Kate Bush before this blog. It’s been a fantastic excuse to slowly make my way through what you’ve proven is a masterpiece of a career. Huge congrats on finishing this daunting project!
