AllMusic Review by

The Bush Tetras' debut recording was a 7-inch, 45 r.p.m. EP containing three songs highlighted by the title track, a minimalist dance number whose lyrics presented the classic case of street corner female annoyance: "These people give me the creeps," declared Cynthia Sley. Though in the same basic style of new wave dance-rock as, say Talking Heads and the B-52's, the Bush Tetras always had a more sour, austere approach that did not lend itself as well to commerciality but was nevertheless compelling. (All tracks were reissued on the Better Late Than Never album.)
