Cincinnati, OH

The future just keeps getting shades brighter for Wussy. Over the past year and a half, the foursome put out its eponymous third album (to a four-star Rolling Stone review), saw its first two albums make an appearance on Robert Christgau’s “Albums of the Decade” list (the notoriously tough critic has given unabashed “A”s to all three Wussy albums) and the group turned out the excellent “Breakfast in Bed” 7-inch for Shake It’s Eddie Hinton tribute series, as well as a split 45 with Louisville’s The Fervor. And how about that great profile piece in Cincinnati Magazine, “Happiness Bleeds” making NPR’s “Song of the Day” and New York falling at their feet during several appearances in the Big Apple. It’s hard not to think of the tweet that appeared about midway into Wussy’s MidPoint set at the Know Theatre last year: “MPMF is Wussy’s bitch.” You’re next, world.
