Swearing At Motorists Release Postcards From A Drinking Town (Collected Singles from ’96-’02)

SC112full

Critics wisely referred to Swearing At Motorists as “The Two Man Who” and anyone who was fortunate to see them live would surely concur. The band developed a reputation for being one of the most energetic charismatic American bands, both on stage and record. Their songs are characterized by emphatic, crunching tonic chords and emotive vocals and the recordings were always raw. A perfect combination of compact stadium rock sing-alongs and lucid love songs that portray a character at the mercy of his own destiny. It all began in the early 1990’s in the bedrooms and basements of Dayton, Ohio amongst the hazy murk of the Midwest American lo-fi scene — a movement championed by neighbors Guided By Voices as well as Sebadoh, Supreme Dicks, and Pavement. We here at Secretly Canadian have combed through our libraries and are proud to offer a comprehensive collection of Swearing At Motorists’ 7-inch and compilation tracks from this exciting era. You can sample “Feeling Transparent” from Songs from a Drinking Town HERE.
