Return of the Watusies

 

continued

Serious musicians all, the Watusies always retained a sense of humor. For each show, Mulholland would add a different (and nonsensical) prefix to the band's name - they could be the "Flaming," "Buck Naked," or even "Geriatric" Watusies. "People would come up and ask me what we were going to call the band next," says Mulholland. "One week we were the 'Exploding Watusies,' and the next week it was 'Imploding.'"

A live band in every sense of the word, the Watusies didn't leave much behind to remember them by, except maybe some beer-tinged memories of good times with good friends. Voodoo Trailer Park (a cassette) and the compilation album Cruisin' Ann Arbor II are the only tangible remains, and if you happen to own a copy of either, you're lucky. Mulholland hints there may be some memorabilia available at the reunion, and Newland has whipped up a website, at myspace.com/thewatusies.

"The biggest issue we have is, Can we find the clothes we wore twenty-five years ago," Drew Howard muses, "and if we find them, can we fit into them?"
