Dayton, Ohio’s Swearing at Motorists (now located in Germany) have launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund their new album. Along with Brainiac, The Breeders, A Ten O’Clock Scholar, and more, Misra manager Leo DeLuca was very moved by S@M during his formative years in the Gem City. PLEASE DO SUPPORT SWEARING AT MOTORISTS!
The cover art for S@M’s new album (above) was done by William Schaff—the same fellow responsible for the cover of Songs: Ohia “Magnolia Electric Co.”, Okkervil River covers, and many more. Also, stay tuned for more collaborations between Swearing at Motorists and Misra in the coming weeks…
Jeremy Frederick (right) with Timmy Taylor of Brainiac
I recently moved back to my hometown of Dayton, OH and, at year’s beginning, began a friendship with an old Dayton figure named Jeremy Frederick. He was a kind, gregarious, wild, absolutely hilarious fellow.
As a boy, I distinctly remember seeing Jeremy play with Cigarhead at Chameleon Club in Dayton. Some girl was in the crowd yelling “ow, ow, ow!… Cigarhead!” (to this day, I still scream “ow, ow, ow!” if I really like a band). That show made a big impression on me. Anyway, Jeremy also played in staple bands Lazy, Let’s Crash, and Human Reunion and was a pillar of the area music scene. Here is a video of him playing an on-the-spot-created, hilarious song with Swearing at Motorists at Omega Music in 2010. S@M frontman Dave Doughman had broken a guitar string, Jeremy jumped on stage to tell a story, and then this happened.
So it goes, Jeremy Frederick passed away in his sleep on Thursday, August 16. He will be sorely missed by many and this post is just a small way to pay homage to him. Here is a link to an old interview with Jeremy via the Dayton-based magazine Ghettoblaster. Rest in peace.
