Wussy’s 2010 plans

15th Jan 10 (Fri) Leave a comment

From the Wussy camp’s website…

We are gearing up for a busy winter and spring so keep your ears peeled. Right now we’re planning spring tour dates and working on a new record. We’ll have a single (vinyl-only) on Shake It Records coming out this spring as part of their Dangerous Highway series, a tribute to Eddie Hinton. The A-Side is our take on the classic “Breakfast in Bed” made famous by Dusty Springfield. More news on that soon. The Drive By Truckers and Greg Dulli 45’s are out now (see shakeitrecords.com for more info).

In the meantime, we’re also working on a live album and a collection of Wussy remixes from other artists.

In other news, Wussy’s self-titled album was #10 on Christgau’s 2009 Dean’s List!

Cool!  I’m looking forward to any new recorded music and touring from this great band!

Wussy… and rumors of Wussy

8th Dec 09 (Tue) Leave a comment

One of my beloved Cincinnati locals, Wussy, has put out some great rock.  Three albums, an EP, and some vinyl to be exact… they continually put out great material.  And while not an “official press release,” they leaked some great news via a status update on the Facebox on Monday…

(highlighting by me)

I got into Wussy via knowing their lead singer Lisa Walker in college… Lisa plus Ass Ponys‘ Chuck Cleaver, Mark Messerly, and Joe Klug make up Wussy.  They put out drony-yet-hook-laden rock, and they release their stuff via hometown Shake It Records (in the lovely Northside neighborhood in Cincinnati).  They’ve gotten some buzz in national rags (like Spin, CMJ, et cetera).  First national tour, first time they’ve hinted at coming out my way = Yippie!

Anyway… I hope it happens.  Srsly.

Oh, check out a recent article about Wussy’s Chuck & Lisa in Cincinnati Magazine (click picture):

PS- Celldweller‘s Wish Upon a Blackstar Ch 2 is out now.  Just DL’d it… looking forward to spinning it…
