It’s been over two years since my last post about Cincinnati’s favorite sons (and daughter) Wussy, so I figured I’d just quote myself since there’s probably not a wealth of other material out there about this band:
Wussy mine the southern rock sound made semi-unpopular by The Reivers, Swimming Pool Q’s and the DB’s. I’d be curious to hear from the band if I got it even half right in this instance (perhaps I’d be safer if I throw in Fetchin‘ Bones and Hetch Hetchy…what do ya think?).
I’m going to stick with that judgment, especially on the basis of the new song, “Crooked”. “Crooked” is a straightahead rocker with a clever, catchy chorus of “they (inaudible) the way you took it, your picture’s hanging crooked”. It comes off the new record Left For Dead and as is common in this line of (unpaid) work I haven’t heard the whole record. I would hope that some of the duets found on “Airbourne” from the band’s 2005 debut (see below) are also still in play on the new one. Find out for yourself by ordering it direct from Shake It Records here.
P.S. I Rock Cleveland also has another song from the new record.
