Well, gosh, doesn't this just say it all about Wussy, our friends from Cinci. “It's high time Chuck Cleaver and Lisa Walker, the core of Cincinnati crust-stained yet dreamy jangle-pop heroes Wussy, get uttered in the same breath as holier-than-thou lady/dude combos like John Doe & Exene, Ira & Georgia, Mac & Laura, and Thurston & Kim. The rough-and-tumble, whiny disposition of the dirtbaggy, bearded Cleaver combines with the super-sweetness of the sublimely voiced Walker to create emotive, gritty poptones” (Brad Cohen, Village Voice) [editor’s note: let’s face it, it doesn’t hurt in the least to note that Walker’s easy on the eyes in a punk rock way, and Cleaver just exudes small-town weirdo inventor genius cool]. How about this? Wussy is the missing link between La Cave-era Velvets and the Burrito Brothers. Now that’s Ohio innovation. Wussy comes along with Cincinnati friends The Ready Stance and Clevelanders The Lawton Brothers.
