Bush Tetras - Take The Fall

Bush Tetras are back in full force with ‘Take The Fall’, their first offering of new music in over ten years and perhaps the most hard-hitting group of songs of their career. 

New York City legends Bush Tetras have been making paranoid, groove-centred post punk since 1979, when Pat Place left James Chance and The Contortions to found the group with singer Cynthia Sley, bassist Laura Kennedy and drummer Dee Pop. Though spared mainstream success in an era when female fronted groups in the charts were pop acts, the Tetras’ single ‘Too Many Creeps’ (1980) was a huge club hit and remains a classic.

Their first batch of songs, collected in 1989’s ‘Better Late Than Never’, massage the hard angles of no wave into deceptively simple, deadpan grooves that change when you least expect them to and brilliant, idiosyncratic lyrics. The group’s early work is a masterclass in style and playfully infectious.

“It’s pure viciousness while the sliding electric guitar adds a hint of unease and apathy.” - Alt Citizen

“With their punk-funk rhythms, urban feminist anthems, and Pat Place’s acid-scratch guitar, the Bush Tetras ruled New York nightclubs in the early ‘80s; they were probably way ahead of their time.” - Village Voe.
