Not only will the Bush Tetras be playing a rare live show this April 15th at The Kitchen to commemorate the arts space’s 40th anniversary, but they are also dropping some limited edition vinyl to re-school the new school of uber indebted musical new comers.
ROIR is very proud to announce a limited pressing of two of the ‘Tetras most seminal tracks on 7 inch vinyl: the original 99 Records recording of Too Many Creeps (1980) and You Can’t Be Funky (produced by The Clash’s Topper Headon in 1982). This vinyl 45 will be available on April 15, the day of the Bush Tetras’ show at the Kitchen, on black and limited edition blue and pink vinyl (only 100 copies pressed).
A band far ahead of their time, the Bush Tetras are one of the most important and revered bands to emerge from the burgeoning punk/no-wave scene of the late seventies and early eighties. As much punk as funky dance music purveyors, the Bush Tetras left an indelible mark on the future of new music. Everyone from The Clash to Henry Rollins wanted to work with them and their influence can be heard in bands as divergent as Sonic Youth and LCD Soundsystem.
