The Buzzards arose after the literal demise of the catchily named Lawrence and the Bitches, Lawrence being the late and greatly missed Larry Terbush of Dirtys infamy. When Terbush’s Dirtys band mate Joe Burdick made the exodus from his Port Huron punk-rock stomping grounds to the Motor City , it seemed predestined that he’d hook up with Terbush’s cohorts, Detroit Cobras guitarist Mary Restrepo and “the Twins,” drummer Nancy and guitarist Leslie Paterra.
“We started out a lot more simple,” says Burdick, who handles the bass and the vocals. “We’re not the most complicated band as it is.”
