SWEARING AT MOTORISTS
Swearing At Motorists played their first headlining show in Europe, at Astrastube, in October 2000. 23 years later, they will return there to bid farewell to the Sternbrücke.,Swearing At Motorists has come a long way since its birth as a poster for a fake band in 1994. Repeated plays from John Peel and favorable press worldwide, landed the band a contract with the then new label Secretly Canadian.
They released 2 EPs & 4 LPs on SC, including 2000’s Number Seven Uptown & 2002’s This Flag Signals Goodbye, both of which were named MOJO Magazine’s “Underground Album of the Year” the years they were released.Swearing At Motorists relocated to Berlin, Germany in 2005, before quietly disappearing into the never-ending Berlin night...
8 years later, the band resurfaced in Hamburg, Germany, with a new album titled While Laughing, The Joker Tells The Truth. Co-produced by Dave and Rick McPhail (of the legendary German band Tocotronic), the album tells the tales of those “lost” 8 years in classic Motorists style.
