The Hussy se forma como dúo en el verano de 2008 en Madison (WI). Integrados por Bobby Hussy (Guitarra/Voz) y Heather Hussy (Batería/Voz), la banda ha conseguido hacerse un nombre dentro de la escena trash-punk colaborando y girando con bandas como Mudhoney, Ty Segall, Thee Oh Sees, Twin Peaks, Nobunny, Black Bananas (ex-Royal Trux), King Khan & BBQ, White Fence… Conocidos por sus directos intensos y caóticos, supieron hacerse valer en la escena musical del medio oeste tocando sin parar entre 2009 y 2015.
En 2015, se incorporó Tyler Fassnacht (Fire Heads, Proud Parents, T.S. Foss) como tercer miembro indiscutible de la banda. Desde ese momento, The Hussy, más grandes y ruidosos que nunca, han desarrollado un sonido atronador que ha encandilado tanto a los nuevos, como a los antiguos fans de la banda. En 2017, lanzaron su onceavo 7″ (Big Neck Records), en el que aparecen tres nuevas canciones. Surgiendo así, el comienzo de The Hussy 2.0. En 2018, grabaron un LP en directo en su concierto sold-out en el High Noon Saloon de Madison (WI) vía Shed House Records. Su nuevo LP, todavía sin nombre, saldrá a la venta en 2019 vía Dirtnap Records.
The Hussy formed as a duo in Madison, WI during the summer of 2008. Equally fronted by Bobby Hussy (Guitar/Vocals) and Heather Hussy (Drums/Vocals), the band carved a trash-punk path through the 2000s into the 2010s playing shows alongside contemporary peers and timeless classics: Mudhoney, Ty Segall, Thee Oh Sees, Twin Peaks, Nobunny, Reigning Sound, Spectrum (Ex-Spacemen 3), Black Bananas (ex-Royal Trux),The Black Lips, Useless Eaters, Cheap Time, King Khan & BBQ, King Khan & The Shrines, White Fence, Digital Leather, The Faint, Tenement….and way too many more to all mention here. Known for their intense and chaotic live shows, The Hussy quickly gained a cult following in the Midwestern underground that saw them touring relentlessly between 2009 and 2015. Over the past decade, the band has headlined tours in Europe twice, and across the US too many times to count. The Hussy pulled double duty as both the opening and backing band for punk rocker NOBUNNY through tours of the US and Australia/New Zealand in the Winter and Fall of 2014 respectively. Bobby Hussy has since moonlighted with Nobunny on-and-off as bass player extraordinaire during a European Tour in September 2018 and some US tour dates.
The Hussy’s hyper-prolific output has spanned 20+ different record labels and every format imaginable (LPs, 7″s, 10″s, One Sided 7″s, CD-rs, CDs, Tapes, Cassette Box-Sets). Nearly all releases have been tracked by Bobby Hussy himself and the band has gained acclaim for their unique recordings that are neither lo-fi nor hi-fi. The Hussy is currently recording a follow up to their fifth and most recent studio album, Galore (2015 – Southpaw Records). Galore saw the band move into a more focused direction with crackly mid-fi production and added instrumentation, while still keeping true to their knack for writing consistently catchy tunes. The band’s previous LP, a split 12″ with Digital Leather entitled False Trails / Hash Grails (2014 – Southpaw Records), showcased a darker side of the band by incorporating synthesizers into the patented lo-fi punk rock scuzz-pop they had perfected on 2nd and 3rd LPs, Weed Seizure (2012 – Tic Tac Totally) and Pagan Hiss (2013 – Southpaw Records) respectively. The band’s debut, Cement Tomb Mind Control (2011 – Slow Fizz Records — Reissued by Southpaw Records in 2015) garnered comparisons to contemporaries Ty Segall, Thee Oh Sees, and Jay Reatard. CTMC quickly sealed The Hussy as premiere stalwarts of the Midwest’s garage-rock scene.
In 2015 The Hussy added Tyler Fassnacht (Fire Heads, Proud Parents, T.S. Foss) as an official full-time third member to help fill out the sound at live shows. Now bigger and noisier than ever, The Hussy is exciting old and new fans alike with their wild scuzz- pop chock full of hooks that rot and stick. The band’s 11th 7″ featured three brand new songs and was released by Big Neck Records in the summer of 2017. It was the first release with the new three-piece lineup and is just the beginning of The Hussy version 2.0. A live LP recorded at a sold-out show at High Noon Saloon in Madison, Wisconsin was released in Summer of 2018 via Shed House Records. Their new, currently unnamed LP will be released by Dirtnap Records in late 2019.
