iTunes Review

Scott Lucas is a busy man. While he's released several fine albums as Scott Lucas & The Married Men, he's now found time to squeeze in his original gig, Local H. Along with drummer Brian St. Clair, Lucas crafts tuneful, aggressive pop-punk that never loses its hooks or its bite. "Cold Manor" immediately breaks out the pleasantries in the duo's sound, while "Night Flight to Paris" ensures we don't forget just how angry things can get. Lucas prefers to write his songs toward a grander concept, and here he focuses on life and politics in the year 2012. Presidential candidate Mitt Romney can be heard in a soundbite, while "They Saved Reagan's Brain" skewers against the GOP. Yet it doesn't sound like Democrats are off the hook, either. Frustration with Wall Street greed and a lack of working-class jobs affect Lucas' worldview, and he turns it into tunes that still retain a shred of joy in their delivery. Guitars are thick and rich, and drums pound like there's no tomorrow. It's well-recorded but never sterile.

About time

A great album with a great sound and songs with attitude and honesty? Typical Local H. Thank God.

Enough With the Concept Albums

Four years ago it was a full twelve tracks of breakups. Now it's 17 worth of politics. Just write a rocking album without the concept for a change, PLEASE!! Unfortunately there are more "misses" than "hits" and that's a darn shame.


Formed: 1990 in Zion, IL

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Best known for their unorthodox two-man lineup, hard rock act Local H have made a career out of straddling the fine line between indie and classic rock, cleverly framing their sardonic lyrics with a generous helping of power chords and feedback. Scott Lucas (vocals/guitar) and Joe Daniels (drums) began playing together in high school in their native Zion, Illinois. Finding a suitable bassist proved an insurmountable challenge, so the industrious Lucas eventually devised a way to install bass pickups...
