Shovelman "Moonshine" The Dirty West
Director of Photography - Jason Mongue
Shovelman is a junkyard beatnik, a shovel guitar wielding surrealist folk superhero. Armed with a collection of pawnshop effects pedals and an old barn-shovel turned slide-guitar, Shovelman plays ol' fashioned folktronica-grooves looped straight out of the ground. The sounds of Mississippi delta blues from the electro-psychedelic future, collide with the antiquated rubble of lyrical one-man-band hoboetry. Shovelman has become infamous on the west coast festival circuit (Lightning in a Bottle, Health and Harmony, Earthdance and The Oregon Country Fair) opening for bands that include Primus, Beats Antique and the Yard Dogs Road Show.
"Shovelman has forged a perfect merger of the past and the present with his bluesy 'folktronic' sound." - LA Weekly
