Wussy (Cincinnati)

Wussy (Cincinnati)

Springing forth from the hinterlands of Cincinnati, OH are Wussy, an American five-piece fronted by songwriters Chuck Cleaver and Lisa Walker and backed by Mark Messerly, Joe Klug and John Erhardt. Bridging the gap between The Band and Sonic Youth, Wussy continue in the tradition of bands with multiple writers and singers. C

leaver and Walker offer radically different perspectives, both lyrically and vocally, that blend in seamless fashion – usually blanketed inside layers of noise. The band typically plays loud rock and roll heavily influenced by late 60?s pop and psychedelica, as well as seminal 70?s songwriters from John Cale to John Prine.

Wussy has "an unmistakable identity... this collection (Buckeye) proves that Wussy are certainly a band with an incredibly rich past and, undoubtedly, an equally rich future" - BBC (July 2012)
