The Sept. 25 billing at O'Cayz Corral, as described in Critics' Choice, illustrates why the place remains a legend in Madison music: "Impaler/Pussy Galore - If only Tipper Gore could come to this double bill. The main act, Impaler, may be the grossest thing in heavy metal. Like George Romero's zombies, they're so far beyond bad taste that they're campy; they carry around an impaled head on a stick and eat the raw liver of a ‘live' victim. Pussy Galore's trash rock sounds like it was actually recorded in a trash bin, and the anthemic title of their recent EP is Groovy Hate Fuck." Based in St. Paul, an Impaler clone continues to tour and has a new album, Old School Ghouls, on Root Of All Evil Records. Pussy Galore expired in 1990, but co-leader Jon Spencer went on to found the Blues Explosion. O'Cayz burned down on New Year's Day 2001, bringing an end to the hallowed grunge venue. Manager Cathy Dethmers opened the High Noon Saloon in 2004.
