Editors’ Notes

Scott Lucas and drummer Brian St. Clair work through eight cover tunes Lucas just so happens to like. The mix of artists is inspired, ranging from obscure to classic. The most famous track here is Pink Floyd’s “Time” and it’s played with a grinding power that’s more than halfway to Stoner Rock. The Misfits’ “Last Caress” is a super lo-fi acoustic take on the tune where Lucas’ homespun fingerpickin’ turns the song into a campfire favorite. The Jesus Lizard’s “Puss” twists into more of a chugging new-wave number than a tortured piece of over-amped angst. TV On the Radio’s “Wolf Like Me” is much more accessible than you might expect. Concrete Blonde’s “Joey” is given a sturdy hard-rock drive with some eye-raising emotive vocals. Agent Orange’s “Blood Stains” is as cool as the original. Hopefully, Lucas and St. Clair will continue to mix it up with other eclectic covers in the future. Great musicians doing what they love is always a good sign.

Customer Reviews

Local H is the best!

I feel their is really no need to write anything about Local H because they are simply the best! I have been listening to them and seeing their live performances for 13 years now. This Mixtape is an amazing lil group of some great covers. Local H always picks covers that seem like they wrote the songs themselves. They give a nice twist on the originals while maintaining the integrity of the origianl versions. Local H is one of my all time favorite bands and for good reason.

Great mix tape

This is a great collection of cover songs from many great artists. Local H does an excellent job of covering these songs and adding their own unique sound to them. I have been looking forward to this for quite some time and if you have ever seen them live and seen them play some of these songs the studio versions are worth picking up.

This band (duo) never disappoints.

These two are always looking for new ways to please their fans, and since they've played so many different covers over the years during live shows, it makes perfect sense for them to serve us this tasty treat. Awesome cover of The Jesus Lizard's "Puss", and "Last Caress" is simply amazing.

Biography

Formed: 1990 in Zion, IL

Genre: Rock

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...
