Cloudbusting "It's in the trees. It's coming" The band sounded great, Mandy was in fine voice, and the visuals and dancing were the icing on the cake (worth the ticket price alone!) @ULULive ...

Last Saturday night Stuart and I went to see ace Kate Bush tribute act Cloudbusting at the University of London Union (ULU) in London's glitzy West End.

Cloudbusting are uber-fans and perform note for note recreations that would make Ms Bush proud. In fact having seen the old girl herself four times a few years back I might even say that the vocals on display by Cloudbusting's lead singer Mandy Watson were at least on a par. At least. If you closed your eyes it was her. Actually you didn't even need to really close them at all as Mandy Watson's Kate is a bit of a lookie-likie too.

The band sounded great, Mandy was in fine voice, and the visuals and dancing were the icing on the cake (worth the ticket price alone!)

We sang, we danced about a bit, we sang some more.
