Boogie Man Smash is band of legend in certain areas of Northeast Ohio, influencing a still thriving alternative music scene in the Youngstown/Cleveand Ohio area. They began in the late 80’s and continued to record and tour regionally until 1994. Dairy Dream was their debut CD recorded in Washington D.C. at Inner Ear Studios by the famous Don Zientara who recorded bands such as Fugazi, Bob Mould, Cracker, Minor Threat, and The Bad Brains. During the recording of Dairy Dream the band were still teenagers, making a music that was a complete mix of their influences at the time. At once the songs sound folky, punk, and refreshing. Some people compared them to the Violent Femmes, some to the Dead Milkmen, some to Camper Van Beethoven. But the music of Boogie Man Smash is a from a stranger place of young inventive minds who were making music in a town where there was little else to do but be creative to stay out of trouble.
Soon we will be coming upon the 20th anniversary of the recording of Dairy Dream, but the CD sounds like it was recorded yesterday and is as of yet undiscovered by many. It is a slice of musical history, showing what regional bands were inventing before the explosion of Nirvana, when the young bands were making music to make it not to “make it”.
