Having carved herself a reputation as a key player on the Sidcup booty-bass scene in the mid-1970s, Kate Bush caught everyone with their keks down in 1985 with the release of 'Hounds of Love', an album of startlingly raw, balls-to-the-wall acidic covers of spritely folk troupe The Bloodhound Gang.
Bush later described the recording process of 'Jig of Life', a cowbell-heavy reworking of the Pennsylvania ensemble’s poignant hit 'Uhn Tiss Uhn Tiss Uhn Tiss', as: "me and Pete (Peter Gabriel) had just been smashing it all weekend in Antwerp, but as were driving to the port to get the ferry back we realised we still had shit loads of Belgian pingers and shrooms in the van, which we were cacking ourselves about taking onto the ferry. Pete suggested just hoofing the whole lot there and then, and, as he was jigging about on the beach wearing only his boxers and a pair of fake Ray-Bans, I decided to whip out a microphone and started recording. One take. Boom.”
