A long-overdue look at the Bush Tetras – a group who had a relatively short life span on the New York scene at the end of the 70s, but who were one of the hippest post-punk groups to record at the time! There's some modes here that remind us a fair bit of some of the best UK acts recording for Rough Trade at the time – and the presence of a strong female lead singer also might draw some comparisons to The Slits. But there's also a punky funky groove going on at times too – at a level that shows how easy it was for these guys to be scenemates of ESG – even though they're a completely different, more guitar-forward band! Whatever the case, the lack of Bush Tetras in the history books will be nicely righted with this collection – overstuffed with classics that include "Too Many Cree
ps", "You Taste Like The Tropics", "Punch Drunk", "Moonlite", "Color Green", "Stand Up & Fight", "Motorhead", "Snakes Crawl", "Pretty Thing", "You Don't Know Me", "Heart Attack", "Seven Years", "Ocean", and "Nails". Comes in a heavy box – and with a 46 page book of notes and images!
