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. They rose to fame during the grunge era, but their attack was different, with Scott Lucas' songs and guitar/bass attack giving the songs a more elemental and adventurous approach, and his embrace of contemporary pop influences (bent to his high-volume specifications) revealed a more musically open-minded outlook than his peers. Local H enjoyed a commercial and critical breakthrough with 1996's As Good as Dead, they offered a bitter contemplation of success and its absence on 2004's Whatever Happened to P.J. Soles? 2020's Lifers found them making smart, hard-hitting music 25 years after their debut.
