Biography

London, United Kingdom (1992 – 2002, 2010 – present)

Bush may refer to at least 2 artists:

1. A British post-grunge band
2. A Canadian rock band

1. Bush is an English alternative rock band formed in 1992. The group chose the name “Bush” because they used to live in Shepherd’s Bush, London.

Their first album, Sixteen Stone (1994), was a huge commercial success. Almost overnight, Bush went from playing small pubs in London to headlining arenas in the US, the result of extensive promotion on MTV and non-stop touring. Critics labeled them as an inferior derivative of bands such as Nirvana and Pixies, and this criticism followed them throughout their career as a band. In particular, Rossdale’s throaty singing voice and random, stream of consciousness-style lyrics were dismissed by some as an imitation of Nirvana’s lead singer, Kurt Cobain. Although the band reached superstar status in the U.S., they failed to have much impact on the riddled UK charts, the lone exception being their single Swallowed, which reached #7. A change in record labels, management and an extended hiatus did not bode well for the band, who unofficially split in 2002.

On June 21, 2010 it was announced that Bush were reuniting. There will be a new album called “The Sea of Memories” (previously named as “Everything Always Now”). Two original members, Rossdale and Goodridge, are joined by Chris Traynor and Corey Britz. The release will be their first indie release since Sixteen Stone, released on Rossdale’s own Zuma Rock Records.

Bush’s albums include Razorblade Suitcase (produced by Steve Albini), Deconstructed, The Science of Things, and Golden State.
