Wussy release this covers EP as a special limited edition record on solid yellow vinyl for RSD 2018.
As they did for their previous RSD 2017 cover of Joy Division’s Ceremony, the band bring their distinctive mix of drone rock, grunge, Americana arrangements and pays homage to the Fab Four, and fellow Ohio artists.

1. Getting Better (The Beatles)
2. Runaway (Jenny Mae)
3. Nomenclature (The Seedy Seeds)
4. Retarded (The Afghan Whigs)

Title track “Getting Better” originally by The Beatles on their Sgt. Pepper album is a brand new recording. “Runaway” originally appeared on the late Ohio singer-songwriter Jenny Mae’s "There's a Bar Around the Corner..", and the track was recorded during the Band’s Strawberry sessions in 2010, but had never made it’s way onto anything previously. The cover of “Nomenclature” originated when Cincinnati electro-pop trio Seedy Seeds asked Wussy to contribute a track to a companion release for their 2010 album Verb Noun. During the Left for Dead sessions at Ultrasuede (with John Curley of Afghan Whigs at the helm), the band also did a cover of their favourite Afghan Whigs song "Retarded", initially released for a comp by Summers Kiss Records of various bands doing Whigs covers. The original Whigs song appears on Up In It (1990).
