From 1987 until 1996, Washington, D.C. and the surrounding suburbs were subjected to the unrelenting sonic assault known as The Suburban Bushmen.
The Bushmen were the unholy love child of Larry "The Bushman" Bush & Michael G. Stewart, rising from the ashes of their former bands -3 Wheel Drive and Electric Tibet.
With the addition of Martin Henze, the infamous "flailing bassist", and Italian screen idol, drummer Mark Coggiano, the quartet set out to conquer the world, one sleazy dive at a time.
Constantly on the run from lawsuits over audiences shattered eardrums, the band continued to appear & disappear one step ahead of the law- and broken hearted women through-out the Metro area. Like any great creative force, personnel changes were inevitable, and Henze eventually left to be replaced by Rob "Stoneface" Anderson, while Coggiano was followed by BBQ Bob Miller when Mark accepted the Nobel Prize for medicine.
This epic group eventually disbanded in 1996 when Larry entered the priesthood and Michael figured he was better at imaging musicians than being one. Recently unearthed in a landfill in Gaithersburg, these forgotten gems are the lads gifts to humanity.
Perhaps, with a little imagination, these songs can help bring about world peace, or domination, whichever pays the best royalties! Enjoy!
