What a change in sound for Local H’s Scott Lucas. After spending the last 15 years (geez, has it really been that long????) pumping out heavy, post-grunge rockers, Lucas just released his first “solo” record under the name Scott Lucas & The Married Men. There is nary a hint of aggression in these songs that Lucas likens to material by Mark Lanegan, Pink Floyd and Pavement and while Lucas did write all the songs, the members of the band add their own flavor to George Lassos the Moon.
With just one show left (tonight’s show at The Summit with Colin Gawel & The Lonely Bones and Tilt) before the big Chicago homecoming CD release party, I had the chance to chat with Lucas after the band’s soundcheck in Pontiac, Michigan.
