"Laura Kennedy, the original bassist and co-founder of seminal no wave band Bush Tetras who has spent the past 12 years living in Minneapolis, passed away on Monday afternoon.
Kennedy was diagnosed nearly two decades ago with Hepatitis C... Complications from the disease eventually led to liver failure, and after a long wait and struggle she received a liver transplant in November of 2008."

her bass line in 'too many creeps' really is the sound of that time in NYC-when cheesy new wave was washing over us in nauseating waves of twee sameness. lead guitarist pat place was in the ground breaking contortions.

another place in time, a more dangerous, less sanitized less homogenous space.
