About this Media...

  • Date Recorded: May 29, 2010
  • Artist / Band: Scott Lucas and the Married Men
  • Hosting Show: Mystery Train
  • Sound: Dan Kinney

If you're a fan of Chicago’s Local H you might be a little surprised when you hear the latest side project from guitarist/songwriter Scott Lucas and his band the Married Men. Even if Local H isn't your pint of lager you'll be pulled in by the natural sound of their debut album George Lassos the Moon.

The album was recorded like the performance in our studio -- live. Lucas, who started Local H with drummer Joe Daniels, traded in that band's aggressive style for a rootsy, Americana vibe that adds bass, violin, accordion and piano to the lineup. He wrote all but one song on the record (the exception being a Westerbergian rendition of "Positively 4th Street") and the lyrics show the sorrow he felt when many of the songs were written.

Even the upbeat songs show a dimension of his songwriting that expands on the music penned for his main band's signature sound and energy. The musicians here give you some of that anxious pit-in-the-tummy feeling we've all dealt with somewhere along the way. Because the album was recorded live it's got an honest sound that leaves in the little mistakes here and there -- it feels real and does the songs justice.
