All Music Guide:
A frenetic indie rock band formed by Greg Elsasser and Sam Martin in the suburban wilds of Omaha, NE, Capgun Coup released their debut album, Brought to You by Nebraskafish, in 2007. With a band lineup rounded out by Eric Ohlsson and Andy Matz, Capgun Coup made downtown Omaha their nerve center and -- prior to releasing Nebraskafish -- focused on becoming a solid live band through house parties and basement shows. Maudlin followed in 2009, bringing with it a satiric commentary on the state of American life.
