Bunbury Festival featured artist: Wussy

Wussy performs on the Landor stage at 3:00pm on Sunday,
July 15

Wussy are a four-piece rock band from Cincinnati, Ohio fronted by ex-Ass Ponys frontman Chuck Cleaver and Lisa Walker. From my very own "Best of 2011" list, here’s what I said about Wussy’s Strawberry – "One wouldn’t expect Chuck Cleaver, the heavily tattooed Cincinnati songwriter, to produce his best collection of songs this late in his already highly-prolific career, but that’s exactly what he’s done."

What does "bunbury" mean? (No cheating; give it your best guess)

What are 3 things that you know about Cincinnati?

It’s hot as fuck here in the summer. A lot of really good bands by-pass us. We’re really into that god damned chili.

It’s 3:00 in the afternoon. What the hell else would you be doing?

What do you think of the fact that Jane’s Addiction is headlining one of the nights of this festival but is not appearing at Lollapalooza this year?

My world is falling apart.
