Noise stuff like dancing stuff

Rooted in the New York no wave scene, the mostly female Bush Tetras had a minimalistic sound that set funky African and Caribbean rhythms against the amateurish guitar clank'n'sputter typical of the city's early-'80s post-punk. The group consisted of vocalist Cynthia Sley, guitarist Pat Place, bassist Laura Kennedy, and drummer Dee Pop; Place had worked with James Chance/White in both the Contortions and the bizarre no wave funk outfit the Blacks.

If you haven't got a soul, take it from the Bush Tetras. They know this sort of stuff.
