Lots of Bush Tetras tidbits in the press this week… New York Magazine asks “The Greatest Song: “New York State of Mind,” “Across 110th Street,” or “Too Many Creeps”?” Of course you know what our answer is… and we hope it’s yours too!
NPR also has featured the Bush Tetras in their great women in post-punk mix, dedicated to Ari Up of The Slits. Speaking of Ari Up, I hope you’ve heard about the Ari Up Punky Reggae Birthday Party this Sunday at the Music Hall of Williamsburg. Full details after the jump…
