Formed in 1979, Bush Tetras were part of the New York no wave/post-punk era in the early 1980s, releasing early material on local labels ROIR (Reachout International Records) and 99 Records (2), as well as on Fetish Records. Their song "Too Many Creeps" reached no. 57 on Billboard's Club Play Chart and brought them to the top of the Manhattan club scene which they now return to almost 40 years later.
Beechwood is an original rock and roll group from NYC formed in 2012. Carrying the torch of such infamous bands like The Stooges, MC5, and the New York Dolls, Beechwood's music stems from a tradition originated in good ol' fashioned juvenile delinquency. The trio consists of Gordon Lawrence, Isa Tineo, and Andy Manzanares. Lawrence plays and sings with a mix of the sensitivity of artists such as Alex Chilton or Elliott Smith, with the visceral aggressiveness of the Raw Power-era Stooges. Tineo matches Lawrence's style, playing drums with a style that often leaves hands bloodied and drum heads dismembered. And bassist Manzanares the quiet one of the group, leaves people in awe over the authority he demonstrates over his instrument, all the while wondering whether he's a boy or a girl.
Gold Dime is a band. It is the brainchild of Andrya Ambro, best known as one half of the noise rock duo Talk Normal. Raw but composed, Gold Dime alternates between an aggression and intimacy, both so sincere, you can’t turn away. Live, Ambro anchors Gold Dime on drums and lead vocals. Every beat is a beckoning to actively listen; and her confident voice no less a beckoning.
2017 brought the release of their debut full-length Nerves (Fire Talk Records) which Bandcamp described as “a gutsy, dense, fascinating work." With this second full length on the horizon, expect a more dynamic and enveloping sound with collaborative efforts from band members Ian Douglas-Moore on bass and John Bohannon (Ancient Ocean) on guitar. Think The Residents, only more intimate and on-fire.
Performing live since 2014, Gold Dime has opened for the likes of Lower Dens, U.S. Girls, EMA, Rainer Maria, The Blow and Xiu Xiu.
