Scott Lucas & the Married Men Bonus and CMJ
They will be at the CMJ Music Marathon in New York, playing Wednesday, October 20th at 11p.m. at Local 269. "Can't wait to get back in a van with these guys," Lucas claims.
Lucas' band Local H will also release an EP of cover songs, Local H's Awesome Mix Tape #1, on October 19th.
Lucas compiled Who Listens To Radio Anymore?: Live Sessions from the dozens of in-studio appearances and interviews he and his backing band did over the past year. It clocks in at almost an hour, giving fans who purchase the 4-song, 30-minute vinyl EP a lot more music for one low, low price. "I was going to pick out 2 or 3 radio performances to include with the download coupon. But I got carried away, of course," explains Lucas. "There was so much good stuff. And, I wanted to put it together like that Beatles BBC record - with little snippets of dialogue between the songs. Tom [Szidon - bass player for the Married Men] gives great interview. He's kind of a master at it. I'm totally in awe."
For his second solo release of 2010, Lucas has broadened his musical scope and greatly expanded his line-up, pulling together a collective of musicians that currently numbers seven and includes violin, accordion and organ. The result sounds quite different than his two-man rock band Local H and is a perfect fit for Lucas' heartfelt songs of longing for a love lost. Reviewers have compared Scott Lucas & the Married Men to American Music Club, Paul K. & the Weathermen and Lambchop among others. Named for the David Bowie track that he covers, the EP also features re-workings of two songs that appeared on his solo debut, George Lassos the Moon, as well as a cover of Local H's "Hey, Rita."
