Just spilled my coffee in the shape of Ireland and started crying. Hope everyone is having a totally normal Wednesday too…

Calling all Kate Bush fans.

Dubliner Sean Twomey has recorded a special podcast on the iconic video to Kate’s 1980s hit Cloudbusting.

Last month the song was re-released as a limited edition picture disc yet still topped the charts.

The video stars Hollywood favourite Donald Sutherland (top left) and the song was based on a book written by the son of psychologist Wilhelm Reich. The podcast is available  above and at the KB fan site katebushnews.com

Sean says he recorded the podcast on Father’s Day because Cloubusting is “one of the most beautiful songs ever written about the love between a child and their father.”

“We have a female prime minister here in the UK. I actually really like her and think she’s wonderful,” said the singer “I think it’s the best thing that’s happened to us in a long time. She’s a very intelligent woman but I don’t see much to fear. I will say it is great to have a woman in charge of the country. She’s very sensible and I think that’s a good thing at this point in time.”
