    Q: And, you know, [Kate's] music does strike me in a way as rather Beatlish. I mean, most rock artists work within one genre or another and are limited by it. But, like the Beatles, you're always able to flit around in different styles while remaining
    recognizably yourself. And you're always musical, always dynamic, always very polished.

    Bush: Well, I take that as a great compliment. I think that, because I was too young to be caught up in Beatlemania, that when I did hear them --and that wasn't perhaps till four or five years ago, that I heard them objectively, if you like. And I was
    just so astounded by their musical quality, and I mean every track! And something like the "Walrus" track, it's still so contemporary. I mean, there are very few people who are doing something really good. But apart from the Sixties, when there was
    this huge wealth of stuff like Motown and everything, it really does seem like you just get two or three who are fantastic. Occasionally, you get great bursts of wonderful things, but not often.
