Its a sad day in music , Laura Kennedy bassist of the Bush Tetras has died from Hepatitis C
she gave these basslines to the world
and in the words of Thurston Moore
“I remember seeing Laura jump up with her bass in some kind of rock ‘n’ roll move (which no No Wave person would ever do) and it forever blowing my mind,”
“I saw her as the coolest girl ever at that point. She certainly remains that way in my consciousness.”
No Wave: Post-Punk. Underground. New York. 1976-1980
I saw the Bush Tetras at a Baba Yaga’s /Stop Making Sense show at the amazing Corsica Studios they were headlining and there was great supports including Chik Budo and Optimo djing – Laura wasnt playing as she was very ill – a real shame didnt get to see and hear the original – those basslines ring out!
