riginally founded as Future Primitive, Bush was started by Gavin Rossdale (ex-Midnight; vocals/guitar), Nigel Pulsford (ex-King Blank; guitar), Dave Parsons (ex-Transvision Vamp; bass) and Robin Goodridge (ex-Beautiful People; drums). Initially they were ignored locally but their luck changed when American label 'Trauma' picked them up as an answer to the recently defunct Nirvana on a competing label. Before their debut album, Sixteen Stone (1995), they played at New York's infamous CBGB's and then relocated to the US The album sold extremely well in the US, a nation that was still lost in the grunge haze, to the point that the album made 4 on their charts with Nirvana-esq tracks like Everything Zen (a song first heard on their debut single), Comedown and Testosterone; the tracks helped the album break in the UK a year later.

The follow-up, Razorblade Suitcase (1997), got them a 1 in the US and finally got a position at home with a 4. The album after that, Deconstructed (1997), failed to capitalize fully on the growing success, making only a 36 in the US The latest, The Science Of Things (1999), did somewhat better at 11 US/28 UK, an album that was followed by a series of singles, all of which charted in the high 40's in the UK.

Footnote: In Canada Bush is known as Bush-X and has been since very early on due to the name already existing by a much older '70's AOR band, a band relatively unknown that successfully defended their trademark in that country.
