LOCAL H, THE PHOTO ATLAS, SHARPENING MARKERS

(Berbati’s Pan, 10 SW 3rd) There was steel grip of close to a year-plus when KNRK seemingly played the same damned five or six songs in constant rotation. Maybe they still do now, but back then at least three of ’em had to have been Local H’s “Bound for the Floor.” Before rock duos became fashionable, these two Chicagoans were peerless for years in the sensitivity and intensity of their signature sound. Great, abrasive albums (Pack Up the Cats, Whatever Happened to P.J. Soles?) would follow, but fresh radio airplay was grounded and the once-golden sales became tarnished. Like that shit even matters.
