Boy Dirt Car

40 years of American Noise and experimentation. Founded in Milwaukee in 1981, Outlaws, Outsiders, and Artifacts have played a part of Boy Dirt Car from the very inception. Along with the nightmarish chaos and improvisation that has exposed evidence of a decaying culture in 1980s abandoned soundscapes. These sounds have now been replaced with an artifact that echoes the final vision of destruction of the western world.

Boy Dirt Car and our joyful noise have continued. The participants have changed as the voyage has continued long past our launch in 1981. A great debt of gratitude is owed to everyone living or dead who has contributed to Boy Dirt Car: performers, recordists, listeners, drivers, poets, barbers, filmmakers, disc jockeys, critics, fellow travelers, short order cooks, con men, gas station attendants. All friends and foes alike. Boy Dirt Car has always been composed of outsiders, we will always be outsiders. Now is the only thing that is real.
