In 1999, label hassles caused Daniels’ resignation; former Triple Fast Action drummer/Cheap Trick drum tech Brian St. Clair has brought the thunder ever since. The newly configured Local H released 2002’s Here Comes the Zoo on Chris Blackwell’s Palm Pictures label; the duo has subsequently only done one-off album deals with various labels. In 2004, Whatever Happened to P.J. Soles? garnered critical raves and 2008’s Twelve Angry Months inspired critic Greg Kot to name Local H Chicago’s Band of the Year.
Local H is finally promising a new full-length, titled Hallelujah! I’m a Bum, which will feature prominently in the set on the duo’s current tour. Anything’s possible at a Local H show; tickets for their 2007 morning gig at Cellular Field were available only by finding Lucas on the street and addressing him, “Attention all planets of the Solar Federation, we have assumed control.” The countdown is on.
