Swearing at Motorists

Dayton, OH cult band Swearing at Motorists, aka "The Two-Man-Who," have been making rock for 20-years with frontman Dave Doughman being the band's only constant (apart from being awesome). The list of former members is nearly as long as The Fall's. If you're unfamiliar, yes they're a little bit like Dayton's most famous Who-inclined indie rock band (but not too much), and you can stream last year's While Laughing, The Joker Tells The Truth as well as singles compilation Postcards from a Drinking Town (via Rdio) below.

Swearing at Motorists are going on tour with pals DTCV, whose Jim Greer used to be a member. (When he was writing for SPIN in the '90s, Greer moved to Dayton to join GBV.) Those dates include SXSW and a stop in NYC at Baby's All Right on March 28. Tickets are on sale now. All dates are listed below.

DTCV, meanwhile, will release their third album, Uptime!, on March 10 via Unsatisfied. You can check out the video for first single "X Water" below. The band have other dates apart from their run with Swearing at Motorists and all are listed, along with album art and tracklist, below...
