On the list of excessively loud bands, it's hard to imagine a group with just two dudes getting anywhere near front of that line. Bands like Mogwai, Dinosaur Jr, and even Neurosis are sometimes best heard from the bathroom - far from the cones, tweeters, and subs of the house PA.
When I entered Local H show, I didn't know I'd be so sonically mutilated by a duo - just guitar and drums - crushing my little ear drums with sheer volume. It was awesome.
Local H capture the hell of Chicago winters into the beautiful world of a snow globe, sitting upon the coffee table of some pretty lady somewhere sunny and warm :/
