 Flashes of light rarely burn for long. Bush Tetras exploded into New York in 1979 and flamed out just a few years later. Yet somehow this lightning-quick band have risen from their own ashes again and again for four decades. The spark that ignited Bush Tetras tapped into a deep grid of power, fuelled by guitarist Pat Place, singer Cynthia Sley and drummer Dee Pop.
 That chemistry is palpable on ‘Rhythm and Paranoia: The Best of Bush Tetras’, which features 30 tracks across 2CDs in a 4- panel digipack / 29 songs across 3LPs pressed onto 180gram vinyl in a rigid lift-off box with lift ribbon, remastered by Carl Saff, plus a 40-page (2CD) / 46-page (3LP) book with neverbefore-seen photos, an original essay on the band by Marc Masters and micro essays by Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore, R&B legend Nona Hendryx, The Clash’s Topper Headon and more.
 From the band’s earliest recordings to their current, vital-asever incarnation, ‘Rhythm and Paranoia’ - for the first time ever
- showcases their unique, influential and body-shaking meld of rock, punk, funk, reggae and more in one cohesive, immersive and meticulously constructed box set.
 “Coupled with [‘Too Many Creeps’’] dancey arrangement, Sley’s monotonous tone signaled that within the Tetras’ newly staked safe space, misogyny wasn’t a threat: it was just a boring, predictable damper on the party. Like the rest of their peers, this band was over it.” - Pitchfork (The History of Feminist Punk in 33 Songs)
 “The Bush Tetras are a national treasure” - VICE
 “Renowned at the dawn of the eighties for pairing the disjoined guitar skronk of the inaccessible No Wave scene with
irrepressible, funk-infused rhythms, the Bush Tetras were remarkably influential without ever really receiving their due” - The New Yorker
 “Bush Tetras bridge the gap between the Ramones and Sonic
Youth.” - NY Post
