Going to College in New York City, no band was hotter than The Bogmen from Long Island. I had the chance to see these guys several times and every show was simply amazing. One such show was at the Roseland Ballroom in Midtown Manhattan where they opened for the Barenaked Ladies and Big Head Todd - they blew them away. The crowd was whipped into such a frenzy that by the time the headliners came on, the crowd was spent. It was that cyclical energy between the crowd and band that we tried to emulate at every Homer show.
In 1994 they were singed to Arista and had the good fortune of Jerry Harrison of the Talking Heads produce their album, "Life Begins at 40 Million" - which is in my top 5 off all time. This was the video they released. I actually caught it on MTV's 120 Minutes - I think it only aired a couple times.
