Event Details

BUSH TETRAS :

The Bush Tetras were a formidable force in Manhattan’s downtown rock scene. A deadly serious quartet that were loud, funky, intense and more than a little bit intimidating, particularly to those of us male rockers who couldn’t quite figure out if we were among the ones giving the Tetras the “creeps” - that jittery mixture of raw nerves and repulsion that figured into the bands best-known song “Too Many Creeps.”

Chick bands had mostly been a joke until punk came along. Suddenly guitars were wrenched from the sweaty hands of a bunch of guys whose last dominion was being shattered right in front of their faces. Even the Tetras’ male drummer, Dee Pop, looked nervous. Rock ‘n’ roll swagger was now, like CBGB’s bathroom, no longer gender specific. The Bush Tetras had ripped the doors off their hinges.

JACKIE-O MOTHERFUCKER

Jackie-O Motherfucker began as a duo consisting of multi-instrumentalist Tom Greenwood and saxophonist Nester Bucket.[1] The group has had more than forty members drawn from the U.S. experimental scene. As of 2008, the core of the group is founding member Greenwood.

Jackie-O Motherfucker's music draws from a variety of subgenres including various folk musics of the world (American folk and blues, Native American song, Traditional English folk ballads, etc.), drone, free jazz, and space rock, and is heavily improvisational in its nature. Because they are a collective, rather than a consistent band or group, the sound of their music can change from performance to performance. The group operates its own label of CD-R live recordings, the U-Sound Archive, which features concert recordings from Jackie-O Motherfucker as well as like-minded subterranean artists such as Double Leopards, Sunroof!, Decaer Pinga, and Vibracathedral Orchestra.

The group's first three albums were limited-run vinyl-only releases on now-defunct Portland label Imp Records. Since then, the group has had recordings released by many different labels from around the world before settling down with the London
