Scott Lucas And The Married Men
WebsiteScott Lucas And The Married Men
Local H frontman Scott Lucas has apparently painted himself into an artistic corner: He split his time in the ’90s with the two-man alt-rock group that made him a household name and a short-lived Chicago band Fig Dish before it broke up, and he spent last decade moonlighting with electronica outfit The Prairie Cartel. But none of those have been sufficient outlets for coloring outside the lines. In 2010, Lucas went solo (without ditching the H) on George Lassos The Moon, and just released a follow-up, the dark and affecting Blood Half Moon. The distortion pedal isn’t flicked on as much as in his main gig, but Lucas’ love of unconventional lineups shines through: His backing band, The Married Men, boasts a violinist and an accordion player in addition to the standard bass-guitar-drums roll call.
