Product Details

LP version on 180-gram vinyl. Originally self-released in 1995 on 100 cassettes, Swearing at Motorists' long out-of-print self-titled debut album is now reissued by A Recordings. Recorded in 1994 on equipment borrowed from roommates Brainiac, this 17-minute lo-fi gem was Dave Doughman's first experiment with songwriting and home recording. The reissue serves as insightful glimpse into the beginnings of the band, whose album While Laughing, The Joker Tells the Truth (AUK 113 CD/LP) was released in 2014. Swearing at Motorists have come a long way since their birth on a poster for a fake band in 1994. A few months after the posters mysteriously appeared in record stores and music venues around Dayton, OH, Doughman jokingly scrawled the name on a cassette of home recordings that he gave to friends, and the band was officially born, joining already established Dayton bands Guided By Voices, Brainiac, and The Breeders in releasing music made in the Miami Valley. The late '90s found S@M releasing a slew of 7 EPs on different labels, and after getting repeated plays from the BBC's John Peel and favorable press worldwide, the band landed a contract with Secretly Canadian, with which they released two EPs and four LPs, including 2000's Number Seven Uptown and 2002's This Flag Signals Goodbye, both of which were named MOJO's Underground Album of the Year for their respective years. This reissue precedes the band's 2015 appearance at South By Southwest, where they will also play several day parties, including their own, the second annual All Tomorrow's Tacos (a mix of bands and stand-up comics). Swearing at Motorists: 20 years and two million miles under the radar.
