The Wussies Are An Insult To Punk Rock

click for enlarged view

The Wussies are kinda like what The Queers would sound like if they became reincarnated as the Estrogen Highs, only not really. Forget I even said that.

The b-side to this single was mastered at 33 while the a-side is at 45-- probably because the b-side has a phone messages intro that's really long. I did some editing to include just the one message that I thought was the funniest, even though that meant cutting out a message from John "Sex Bomb" Coletti talking about Dumpster Dive-- this planet's best middle-aged punk zine EVER. To make up for it, I'm including the Sex Bomb cartoon that I wrote for Brushback #3, even though it doesn't have anything to do with The Wussies.

JIM TESTA ALERT: These are the same Wussies that put out a single many years ago on Headache Records, of which only 300 were made. The Hyped To Death website says even fewer copies of "Baby Ran Away" were pressed, right after which the band broke up, so not a lot of copies got around.

Hey, sorry, but the mp3 files on this post are now listen-only (non-downloadable) files. For those of you who came to the party late, I will do my best to respond to any e-mailed requests for the original files.
