Kate Bush's Hammer Horror
My fellow season ticket holder Nigel went to see Kate Bush in Hammersmith last night and has been wondering if she is a closet Hammers supporter. After all she did write Hammer Horror, presumably after a dire home defeat, and Them Heavy People is surely a tribute to Benni McCarthy. Her album The Kick Inside is perhaps a tribute to the subtle passing of Trevor Brooking, while her "rolling the ball" lyric indicates she likes keepers to play it short. Babooshka was presumably one of Harry Redknapp's Foreign Legion. And on Saturday West Ham certainly looked like they were Running Up That Hill.
