Album Review

Subtitled "Original Studio Recordings 1980-1983," Boom in the Night was a CD reissue of the 1989 cassette compilation Better Late Than Never, though it omitted one track, the demo "Makin' a Mistake," and resequenced the remaining 14 tracks. The Bush Tetras made a couple of independent label EPs and a single in New York in the early '80s, and then disappeared. The music was simple and relentless, as were the chanted messages of songs such as the seminal "Too Many Creeps." This was punk minimalism down to the point of amateurishness, but no less compelling because of it. The album, which contained the same liner notes as the earlier one, apparently was released to herald the April 1995 reformation of the Bush Tetras.

Customer Reviews

Why don't enough people know about this band?

SERIOUSLY! Amazing funky punk! These guys (girls) are the predecessors to everything you hear at your favorite club. Saw them live at Cake Shop a couple of months ago and I gotta say they haven't lost their touch. Almost every song here is a hit! Get up and dance!!!


I'm just going through some old 45s I've saved...some of the songs I really couldn't part with and am now transferring them into Itunes form a USB turntable. I checked here to see if by any possibility Bush Tetras had been listed. WOW!!! This is GREAT honest and in you face.
If you missed them the first time around, try them NOW!


Hey! The Bush Tetras are such an awesome band! Their songs are so freaking great! And I mean they're so cool that they use those disco hammer things! XD Btw HI LAURA! It was fun visiting this summer! :D


Genre: Rock

Years Active: '80s, '10s

New York's Bush Tetras had a no wave link, via guitarist Pat Place's association with James Chance, but the band's sound was neither frantic nor disjointed enough to be properly categorized with those bands. They played scrappy post-punk, with fellow Americans Pylon and Konk and Brits Delta 5 and Au Pairs as close contemporaries. If there's any one song the Bush Tetras are known for, it's 1980's "Too Many Creeps" -- the band's most representative song and also the catchiest, made by the kind of jagged...
