Wussy in Cincinnati

On more than one occasion, Robert Christgau has called Wussy “the best band in America“. As the readers of this site know, we don’t disagree. We’ve covered Wussy’s trips to NYC seven times over the last five-plus years. In March, Wussy releases their 6th proper album called Forever Sounds to be released in the US on Shake It and in the UK on Damnably.

We are so pleased to be able to bring Wussy back to NYC for a show at Trans-Pecos on Wednesday March 30. We’ve also selected the support for this show, Courtesy Tier, who were so impressive when we saw their CD release show back in November at Rough Trade.

Wussy: January 17, 2015 Studio at Webster Hall – Flac/MP3/Streaming

Wussy Upclose
[screen cap from this video]

“We suddenly have a crowd”, Wussy co-frontperson Chuck Cleaver noted wryly in the middle of a very sold-out crowd at the Studio at Webster Hall on Saturday. Suddenly of course being the relative word. Wussy has existed as a band for more than a decade but 2014 was by far their best year as a band. The breakthrough album Attica was released in the Spring and the groundswell of support was palpable. By year’s end the album was appearing all over the place in the best-of-year lists, Pazz & Jop (Village Voice), The Guardian, KEXP, Underground Bee, Sound Opinions, Bradley’s Almanac, Chunklet, KDHX, and many others — including this very site’s 10 Best Concerts and 25 Best Moments. So the “crowd” wasn’t so much as sudden as it was well earned. Perhaps its the sold-out crowds or the at-long-last universal praise or just the positive energy that currently surrounds the band but Saturday night’s show is the best we’ve ever seen Wussy play — and we’ve been there a bunch of times going back several years. The band opened with a quiet Lisa Walker-led traditional number that will appear on the band’s Record Store Day release later this year and then worked through half of Attica, selected older tracks, one new song and one clever cover. The entire band seemed to be “on” for this show and the highlights were many. We’ve chosen to stream Lisa’s ode to Indiana, “Pizza King” from 2011’s Strawberry and the aptly named “Beautiful”, a co-lead vocal number that closes out Attica. Wussy does not have any current local dates, but given the huge success of this particular show, I can’t imagine it will be long before they return East.

I recorded this set with the Schoeps cards clamped up high to the soundboard cage and mixed with an excellent feed from the band’s local FOH David Fine. The sound quality is quite exceptional and really very well captures the energy in the room. Enjoy!

Wussy Larchmont

The nights like this one are the ones to cherish. After Wussy’s Friday show while I was breaking down equipment, I was invited to a private house concert by Wussy for the following night up in Larchmont in Westchester County. Fortunately, I had no plans so that I was able to take the quick drive up to attend and record this event. It was clear from the outset that this was going to be special as a spread of gourmet Indian food was presented to the band and all the guests. After setting up my equipment with the help of the band, all of the guests made it downstairs to a family room large enough to host a small concert. Lisa Walker and Chuck Cleaver played seated with Lisa on acoustic and Chuck on a steel guitar — or as Lisa called it “Campfire Wussy”. The band also put together a very unique setlist including some Wussy Duo numbers, some deep cuts, and the first full band performance of an Ass Ponys track. And of course, the band spent much of the between-song banter as they often do, ribbing each other and telling amusing anecdotes. From my vantage point sitting less than ten feet from the band, it was truly a unique and special experience. We remarked that Friday’s show featured a wonderful version of “Motorcycle”, and Saturday’s show featured a different arrangement that was equally breathtaking. That song is streaming below. Wussy will return to the NYC area on January 17 for gig at a venue that is not yet announced. See you then.

I recorded this set with the Schoeps cards positioned directly in front of the band. I also used a single DPA omni microphone and a single line out from the modest PA used to amplify the vocals and guitars. With the onstage Schoeps as the primary recording, I used the other sources to supplement the depth and also the vocals (upon which I applied some reverb). I’m quite pleased with the excellent results. Enjoy!

Wussy: October 10, 2014 Knitting Factory – Flac/MP3/Streaming

Wussy @ Knitting Factory
[photo courtesy of Johannes Andersen – Soundcloud photo by nyctaper]

Wussy’s first NYC show in six months was perhaps their most important East coast show thus far — a headlining gig on the Friday night of the CBGB Festival at Knitting Factory. Back in the Spring, a high profile gig like this would have been not likely for Wussy, but since the release of their latest album Attica and the universal praise it received, there has been a groundswell of support for the band and a higher national profile. To be fair, Wussy has had a modest but fervent and faithful fanbase for the entirety of their existence. Back when they played Cake Shop back in 2010, we noted that fans had come from as far as Canada to see the show. Those fans are still supporting the band — at the Knit there were travelers from Seattle and from Peru — but there are just more of them. And that’s a good thing. This is a band with a unique male/female dichotomy and truly superb supporting instrumentalists with solid songwriting, an authentic take of mid-Americana rock and a healthy dose of humor. If any band deserves a greater audience, its Wussy. At the Knit on Friday, we saw a band operating on all cylinders. In particular, Lisa Walker continues to impress with her growth as a performer. As a request, the band performed a rarely heard Lisa song “Motorcycle”, which on the album (2012’s Funeral Dress) is a sweet but sad ode, while Lisa’s vocal performance on Friday gave depth to the song with a world-weariness and longing in her voice. A truly remarkable performance that encapsulates what is special about this band. My other favorite part of this show was during the encore segment when the band jammed on a theme from their own “Yellow Cotton Dress” before breaking into a tremendous cover of the Joy Division/New Order classic “Ceremony”. That performance earned the band a second encore call and its streaming below. Wussy returns to NYC in January and we’ll certainly be there then too.

I recorded this set with the Schoeps positioned on a high stand at the soundboard booth and mixed with an excellent feed from the band’s local FOH David. The sound quality is quite outstanding. Enjoy!

After this show, I was invited to a private house concert by Wussy on Saturday night. That recording will require some extra mixing, but should be posted on the site by the end of the week.

Wussy at Studio WH
[iphone photo by nyctaper]

Wussy’s new album Attica (Shake It Records) will be released in about a month. Its the band’s fifth full-length release and its certainly their most ambitious project thus far. The album fully incorporates touring guitarist John Erhardt as a full-time member and the added instrumentation is evident in the record’s production. Wussy recorded in the Afghan Whigs John Curley’s studio and the results are both stylistically consistent with their previous output and more fully realized. Wussy is still raw and authentic, and when we caught them live last week at The Studio at Webster Hall, still funny as hell. This band has some very dedicated fans — we receive more requests to record Wussy than any other band, believe it not — and the front half of the room at the Studio was packed. Lisa Walker even took time during the encore break to individually thank fans who she’d seen consistently at shows. The set was what we’ve come to expect from our previous experiences, a fun and energetic but a tad bit sloppy run through a good selection of the band’s Ohio americana/garage rock with frequent bits of hilarious banter. For this tour, the Attica material is obviously front and center and we’re streaming an excellent version of “Bug”, one of the standout tracks on the album.

I recorded this set with the Sennheiser cards set up beside the soundboard in the rear of the rectangular room and mixed with a board feed provided by house FOH David. The chattering in the back of the room can be heard at quieter times in the recording, but overall the sound is quite excellent. Enjoy!

Wussy: August 11, 2012 Mercury Lounge – FLAC / MP3 / Streaming

[Photos by acidjack]

Wussy, like their Cincinnati brethren and fellow NYCTaper favorites Heartless Bastards, are one of those hardworking, unpretentious, straight-up-rocking bands that real music fans should always pull for. Unlike the unabshed classic rock of the Bastards, Wussy’s sound is more reminiscent of early-80s indie acts like the Bongos, with a rawer sound and accented with a light country twang. Despite being what no lesser critic than Robert Christgau called “the best band in America”, they remain an open secret among music fans. Meaning, when they throw a Sunday night early show at Mercury Lounge like this one, they’ve got a line snaking down the block before doors. And half the people in that line were wondering aloud at why the band isn’t more popular. There’s no getting past it, Wussy aren’t an act built around image or gimmicks; I don’t know this for a fact, but I’m betting their t-shirt sales aren’t what they could be (being a dude wearing a shirt that says “Wussy” may not be a winner). What Wussy is about is delivering the best show possible, having a fan-first attitude, and writing song after song with what Christgau himself called “Beatles/Stones consistency”.  This band suffered and sweated to make it to this Mercury Lounge show, in a van without A/C, which on this particular day, coming from just about anywhere, was enough torture to make you question their sanity, but not their rock n’ roll bona fides. (You can hear the story at the beginning of “Funeral Dress”, streaming below).  What we got was a set that spanned their records, kicking off with the title track from Funeral Dress, the album that started it all. Vocalists Chuck Cleaver and Lisa Walker sounded raw and right on this night, and despite a trying day, they gave the packed early evening house a hell of a time.

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK41 microphones and a soundboard feed provided by Kevin, the head engineer at Mercury.  As with most of our recordings from the venue, this one is outstanding. Enjoy!

Wussy: March 3, 2012 Cake Shop – Flac and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Song

I can’t imagine that Robert Christgau gets out to many shows these days. But last Saturday at Cake Shop, there he was at Wussy‘s first NYC show in almost two years. I suppose its a bit of a novelty that one of the current favorite bands of a legendary music critic is a relatively obscure self-described “midwestern drone” outfit. But Christgau has it right. As the current band of Chuck Cleaver, the leader of 90s underground legends The Ass Ponys, Wussy is a solid guitar-bass-drums quartet with an excellent mix of male and female vocals and tremendous songcraft. For this tour, the band brought along another former Ass Ponys guitarist John Erhardt to play pedal steel. The Cake Shop show was perhaps a tad short because they were the third band in a four band bill (with a late show to follow), but Wussy worked through a mix of older and newer numbers, including songs from their recent release Strawberry. The band did not hold back for the set’s closer, a raging version of “Rigor Mortis” that concluded with a noisy guitar-drenched episode that left the packed crowd asking for more. We’re streaming that song below. Wussy will play several SXSW shows and we’re hoping to catch them, before they play more midwest shows, and then there is an anticipated Summer tour (with more East Coast dates).

I recorded this set in the same manner as the recent Old Monk recording, with the DPA 4021s on a mount on the low ceiling above the stage and the DPA 4061 omnis mounted in front of the PA. The sound quality is excellent except for a crackling (blown amp) sound which persists for several songs in the middle of the set. With that caveat, enjoy!

I saw the Ass Ponys thirteen or fourteen years ago play at the late lamented club Brownie’s on Avenue A. The most lasting memory of the night was the hilarious between-song banter, primarily from Chuck Cleaver. When the Ass Ponys just sort of stopped playing in 2005-6, Chuck took up full time with his latest band Wussy. And while Wussy plays a similar intelligent americana-rock as Ass Ponys, and have inherited the gift of entertaining banter, what separates the two bands is Chuck’s new co-frontperson. Lisa Walker writes lyrics as compelling as Chuck’s and on stage, she is a tighly-wound bundle of energy uncoiling to deliver three-minute bursts of sonic goodness. At Cake Shop last night, we saw up close why the followers of this puzzlingly-obscure Cincinnati quartet are so dedicated — one fan came all the way from Canada for the show. In their seventy-five minute set, the band drew from their three excellent albums, played one new song and an Eddie Hinton cover, and returned twice for four encores.

I recorded this set from upfront, six feet from the PA. The sound quality of the recording is rich in clarity and limited sonically only by the modest system in the venue. Enjoy!

NYCTaper Upcoming Schedule: Winter/Spring 2016

Another Happy New Year to all of our faithful readers.  As we move into 2016 there will be some major changes at NYCTaper as we become involved in the minority ownership of a renewed venue, the Market Hotel.  We can continue to promise the same degree of archival work, but with an added extra — we’ll be documenting as much as we can from one particular venue which may also come to include regular streaming of shows.  Its an exciting time here and a ride upon which we hope you’ll join us!

Caveat: Below is the updated schedule. We expect to attend and record these events. However, circumstances will prevent some of these from being done, and others will be added in the meantime. Feel free to make suggestions or point out shows we missed or invite us to your shows!
