Local H is an American rock duo, formed by Scott Lucas (lead vocals, guitar, bass) and Joe Daniels (drums) in Zion, Illinois in 1987. Local H's 1996 album, As Good as Dead, includes the top 10 hit 'Bound for the Floor.' More recently the band (now with drummer Brian St. Clair) has received extensive critical acclaim. Author, rock critic and Rolling Stone contributor Greg Kot and the Chicago Tribune named the band its 2008 Chicago 'Band of the Year,' calling them 'as good a rock band as any to call Chicago home in the last decade.'
The compilation contains the power duo's take on Pink Floyd's 'Time,' Concrete Blonde's 'Joey,' The Jesus Lizard's 'Puss,' and more. All songs are previously unavailable studio recordings, though Local H has consistently peppered its live set lists with these and other covers. TV on the Radio's 'Wolf Like Me' and Agent Orange's 'Blood Stains' were audience favorites on the band's recent 6 Angry Records Tour.
