Nobody like them, funky sorta pre BIKINI KILL, less hardcore

"Man, I've loved this group since I first heard them in the mid 80's. Lots of funky fun. 'Too Many Creeps' woulda been a radio hit in a perfect world. The lyrics are perfect for feminist/great band thinking. They have several other songs that you gotta listen to on 'listen': 'Cowbyos in Africa' gives me a real feeling that this is a band of white youth with a good groove on. It's their own. 'You Can't Be Funky' again gets it right. 'Snakes Crawl' moves just right. 'You Taste Like the Tropics'. Nice sentiment. All four songs stand the test of time very well. Well written, urban punk funk, heavy on the urban funk.
Again, New York does its thing. I didn't know the CLASH drummer, Topper, was associated with some of the recordings. I think he's one of the best drummers ever, very diverse skills and just so right on all the CLASH songs he's on. Really provides a foundation for them to build on. Percussion is one of this band's strengths.
Three gals and a guy. Same gender formula for BIKINI KILL, sorta the next generation building from BUSH TETRAS. There's a natural connection there. email@example.com"

"I could not believe the whippersnapper above comparing the bush tetras with Bikini kill. Ha!! Bikini kill * W I S H E S * they were in the same league as the Bush Tetras ((by the way, the reuninted band will play a gig on feb 24 here in NYC).
I Am old enough to remember them playing live in 1981 So cool so real so perfect in their time. Myself and half of the other straight guys were in love with the butch dykes that ruled downtown with everything one could hope to have= real style, Intelligence, wry humor, poetry, good music and defiant politics.They did not become big because of their in-your-face lesbian sensuality. I remember when "Too many creeps" came out, everyone was like "hey who are these women, and what are they saying?". Sadly, heroin took its toll and members went downhill and destroyed a great band...
Do yourself a favor. buy this record.This is the real deal."

"It's hard to convey the import of this music if you weren't there. The early 1980's was one of the most rarified and creative moments in the history of popular music. Bush Tetras blended punk, reggae and funk with an edgy New York street sensibility. This music is real. And it's all here, the early singles Too Many Creeps and Dah a Riot, and the seminal Rituals EP. Don't miss this, get it before it goes out of print."
