A moment arrives in many musicians' lives when it becomes clear that their career has peaked, that a passing mention in the local weekly and an inattentive, half-empty club is the brass ring, no matter how much blood and guts they leave on-stage. For Dayton, OH's decade-old Swearing at Motorists, that realization isn't a future abstraction or some wistful Replacements song on the radio; it's their past, present, and foreseeable future. Last Night Becomes This Morning chronicles those desperate moments of self-doubt with such excruciating honesty it leaves you wondering what motivates singer/songwriter Dave Doughman and drummer Joseph Siwinski to slog on anyway night after night.
