about

SMEAR-CAMPAIGN was started in 2001 by Craig Franklin, Danny Murphy and Steve Dorlan who forged a band to challenge, explore and push their musical bounderies. They were soon joined by Maria Aggabao to give their project a "voice" and visual focus. Mike Ferguson (aka DJ Dubcrash) joined later to add more ambience and electronics to their sound.

Their music is intense yet intimate, camouflaged by a sultry voice singing about life - complex love, loss, and yearning. . Inspired by a vast collection of artists, SMEAR-CAMPAIGN finds their sound hard to classify. In its simplest terms, they fit into the hard rock mold, but hints of outside influences can also be heard. Words like "ambient, sultry, moody, jazzy, bluesy, and dark" have been used by listeners and critics to describe their music as well. SMEAR-CAMPAIGN emerged onto the New York City music scene playing gigs at CBGB, Continental, Don Hill’s, Downtime, and Mercury Lounge.

SMEAR-CAMPAIGN completed their 4-track EP early in 2002 at Sonic Boom Studios in New Jersey. The songs were produced by Anthony Krizan (SPIN DOCTORS, songwriter for various artists including Lenny Kravitz). They rejoined with Krizan to work on their follow-up full length CD in late 2003.

Track Name: Orange Hill
When I see you again it won't be the same
I always knew deep inside it would be that way
when I'm with you again it won't be the same
I always knew deep inside it would be that way
Don't worry about me I'll be alright
This will be my sacrifice
When I'm with you again it won't be the same
Always knew deep inside it would be that way
When I'm with you again it will be the end
Always knew it would be that way

I won't forgive your foolish lies
I can't believe your alibis

Now you know just what you get when you don't give anything
Now your world is all a mess and you want me by your side
But I don't want you
And you're crawling back to me
I don't want you
These words ring in your head
You're crawling back to me
I don't want you, I don't want you anymore

When I'm with you again it won't be the same
Always knew deep inside it would be that way
When I'm with you again it will be the end
Always knew it would be that way


Now you know just what you get when you don't give anything
But I feel alive
Track Name: Moon Trip
Oh love where have you been?
I long to take you in
So happy to see this stranger here
Entice me, please come on in
the stars are lined with gold
the moonlight's growing older
Don't wake me I hear the sweetest voice
So happy love the state I'm in
Don't know where this started from, don't know how I know you
I've never seen your smile before but I don't care
Oh no, you've disappeared
I'm going to bring you back here
I'll find you I'll look here for awhile
won't lose you, you nourish me
so happy i'm feeling oh so high
don't wake me I'm dreaming
so happy I'm feeling oh so high
don't wake me
It's just begun
