Wussy is a four-piece rock band from Cincinnati, Ohio fronted by songwriters Chuck Cleaver and Lisa Walker. The band formed spontaneously in 2001 when Walker joined Cleaver for a dreaded solo performance. This pairing soon turned into a somewhat unsteady but engaging full band with the addition of bassist/utility man Mark Messerly and drummer Dawn Burman. Their first two full-length releases met with some critical success, crafting songwriting and sheets of noise into what was called an 'articulated drone'. Their third album will be released April 20, 2009 and combines the more immediate, noisy elements of Funeral Dress with the improved musicianship and sonic palette of Left for Dead. The band will tour throughout the summer across the East Coast, Midwest and South, along with new member Joe Klug who replaced Burman on drums in March 2009. In the meantime they are working on more midwestern velvet racket for a fourth release.
