Feature: 'The Many Reasons to Love Wussy' by Robert Christgau / by Lisa Walker

Rock critic Robert Christgau published a feature in the Barnes & Noble Review (March 6, 2012) titled The Many Reasons to Love Wussy, saying:

“Wussy have been the best band in America since they released the first of their five superb albums in 2005, only nobody knows it except me and my friends. I’m oversimplifying, of course. Wussy are a moderately big deal in their unhip Cincinnati hometown, and in part because so many of my friends are rock critics, their 2011 Strawberry finished 109th in the 2011 Pazz & Jop Critics’ Poll — not bad for a band never once mentioned in Pitchfork. (Ever.) Nevertheless, they remain dishearteningly obscure.” - Robert Christgau

Update: This piece was later published in Christgau’s October 2018 anthology titled Is It Still Good to Ya?: Fifty Years of Rock Criticism, 1967-2017 (Duke University Press).
