History

Local H's first album, Ham Fisted, was released in 1995 to rather mediocre reviews. Their 1996 album, As Good as Dead was certified gold and contained the popular singles "Bound for the Floor" and "Eddie Vedder." It was much more critically well-received, as was the 1998 follow up, Pack Up the Cats, which spawned the single "All the Kids Are Right". Unfortunately, the album's chances of success were stifled when their label, PolyGram, merged with Universal and the album was all but forgotten during the transition.

Local H has also been known for their creative ideas in concerts. In 2003 the band auctioned off a concert on eBay, and the group also performed in 2004 at the Fritz's Corner tavern in Zion, Illinois, which is where the group originated. ("Fritz's Corner" is also a song by Local H on their As Good as Dead album.) In 2005 the duo performed a series of setlist request shows, where fans who attended the shows got to vote before the show began on what seven songs they would like to hear the band play. A good friend of the band, Gabe Rodriguez, would often accompany the band on tours and emerge during songs to provide backing vocals or kazoo playing. In 2006, they put up a new song called "Michelle" on the internet, followed by another song entitled "Them's Fighting Words". These two tracks will most likely be on the upcoming CD, which will be released in 2007 or 2008.
