“Heathcliff, It’s Me, Cathy!”

WHEN DOUGLAS LEITCH DECIDED TO ORGANISE MELBOURNE’S MOST WUTHERING HEIGHTS DAY EVER, A CELEBRATION OF SINGER KATE BUSH AND HER CLASSIC DEBUT SINGLE, HE DIDN’T EXPECT 2,000 FANS WOULD JOIN HIM – ALL DRESSED AS KATE! MATT MYERS REPORTS FROM THE WILEY, WINDY MOORS (MELBOURNE’S BOTANICAL GARDENS, ACTUALLY).

ON JANUARY 5, 1978, an unknown 19-year-old British singer hit the airwaves with a song called Wuthering Heights that toppled ABBA from the #1 chart position and firmly entrenched itself in the psyche of popular culture. At a time when music was all about Fleetwood Mac, The Eagles and KISS, this deeply unusual but addictive song, and accompanying video, scaled the charts and made a star of esoteric Kate Bush.

Forty years later, July 16, 2016, and it’s a normal sort of Saturday in Melbourne. Trams clang, shoppers bustle, Pokemon Go players clog the footpaths, and football supporters make their way to the MCG. But the footy fans aren’t the only ones dressed in team colours. Throughout the park are mysterious, ravenhaired figures dressed in red.

Forty-four-year-old Melburnian Douglas Leitch was inspired by a 2013 event in Brighton called Shambush that attracted around 300 participants – all dressed as Kate in the Wuthering Heights video, who copied the dance moves flash-mob style. “I thought Melbourne should do the same,” says Leitch.
