|Bush Tetras at Hurrah, 1980, shot by Eugene Merinov|
As the obituary in the Minneapolis City Pages, her recent home's newspaper, said, "Though she hasn't performed publicly for years, Kennedy's legacy will always be tied to her time in New York in the late '70s and '80s. Bush Tetras were one of the first female punk bands to gain notoreity in that era, and Kennedy's bass playing can be heard providing a creeping counter melody to Pat Place's angular guitar riffs in their best-known hit, 1980's "Too Many Creeps." Leave a note for Laura on the Bush Tetras Facebook page.
