Collectors of kitsch and arcane Americana in their private lives, Cincinnati's Chuck Cleaver (formerly of Ass Ponys) and Lisa Walker have also accumulated high praise with their band Wussy. In the past 15 years, Wussy has grown from a duo to a five-piece, while being called "the best band in America" by none other than Robert Christgau, who added, "only nobody knows it."
Fortunately, more people are discovering Wussy's music and packing its shows. Forever Sounds, its sixth full-length, finds the band at its most adventurous.
