Local H’s 68 Angry Minutes…

The main influence for that song was Naughty Girl…by Beyonce.

Verbalized by Scott Lucas, the front man for the hard-hitting Chicago duo Local H, when asked about last year’s stunna White Belt Boys. 12 Angry Months by Local H was without question my favorite record of last year. And up until today, it still receives consistent spins. A very real break-up record that birthed seven consecutive nights of the act re-creating all of their albums in true start to finish fashion. Absolute nostalgia aside, Scott Lucas, Brian St. Clair, and a host of blasts from the past, showed why they survived the post 90s Chicago boom: sincere passion and a true love for the art we all cherish and follow fervently.

As anxiously mentioned before, their momentous live occasion was being filmed for a DVD. 12 plus months later, the final product is available for consumption. The tracklisting and bonus material consists of the following:

    I got to be honest, I have never been a big Local H fan like you and Brian, but 12 Angry Months was one of my favorite records of last year too. It had every element that a great record needs, and the anger made it rock. “White Belt Boys” friggin’ rocks, I played the shit out of that! I found an older LP of theirs in the cut outs and I continue to look for more. Have you snagged the video yet?
