Poopshovel, Moonboot at High Noon Saloon
September 4, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 11:30 pm$10
Poopshovel, playing here for the first time in almost 30 years, has a proud place among a crop of ’80s- and ’90s Madison bands that combined noisy aggression with a whole lot of smart-assed commentary and just as much eccentric style. (Other standouts in that vein included Appliances-SFB and of course Killdozer.) Throw on the band’s first album, 1989’s Opus Lengthemus, and you’ll hear guitarist Richard Whitaker punctuating his riffs with squealing pinch harmonics and singer Bill Crawford going off on trumpet runs between deadpan stream-of-consciousness verses, while drummer Pete Kaesberg and bassist David Kovalic create big, driving grooves. The band is probably best known for its over-the-top Packers anthem, “One Pass Away” (from 1991’s I Came, I Saw, I Had A Hotdog), but there are plenty of other bizarre gems where that came from. —Scott Gordon
