Bush Tetras were part of the New York no wave/post-punk era in the early 1980s, releasing early material on local labels ROIR (Reachout International Records) and 99 Records (2), as well as on Fetish Records.
The Bush Tetras were a formidable force in Manhattan’s downtown rock scene. A deadly serious quartet that were loud, funky, intense and more than a little bit intimidating, - that jittery mixture of raw nerves and repulsion that figured into the bands best-known song “Too Many Creeps.”
Chick bands had mostly been a joke until punk came along. Suddenly guitars were wrenched from the sweaty hands of a bunch of guys whose last dominion was being shattered right in front of their faces. Even the Tetras’ male drummer, Dee Pop, looked nervous. Rock ‘n’ roll swagger was now, like CBGB’s bathroom, no longer gender specific. The Bush Tetras had ripped the doors off their hinges.
