Local H’s widely praised 1998 concept album Pack Up the Cats earned a spot in SPIN magazine’s top 20 albums of that year. The band was named “Chicagoans of the Year” by the Chicago Tribune for their 2008 break-up album, 12 Angry Months, more than a decade after their breakthrough hit “Bound for the Floor” ruled the Modern Rock charts. In 2015, Local H celebrated the 25th anniversary of their first show and released a career-spanning coffee table book, Local H: Twenty-Five Years of Skin In The Game. Earlier this year, they re-issued their 1996 album, As Good As Dead, on vinyl for the first time.
Stoop Goodnoise leads the way in the new Chicago rock scene. Chicago has always been a city of collided cultures coming together to form something amazing, and there is no band that encapsulates this like Stoop Goodnoise. A facepunch of 90’s grunge fury, punk choruses, and intergalactic guitar solos. One part Chicago street kids, one part classic rock phenoms, but all one original sound that cannot be missed, ignored, and cannot be stopped.
Stoop has played at numerous clubs around Chicago such as the Bottom Lounge, Beat Kitchen, and House of Blues. They have gone as far as being one of the three finalists in the MTV VMA 2009 Best Breakout Chicago Artist Contest, where they supported All Time Low & White Tie Affair at Six Flags Great America. Their set from that day was also featured on Comcast On Demand followed by a short interview with the band.
Their self-titled debut EP, produced by Wuli Records CEO Louis Svitek (Ministry,Mindfunk,M.O.D.) & Ten23 Studios CEO Ryan McGuire (Lee Dewyze) was released on March 17th 2010 and accompanied with airplay on Q101’s Local 101 with their song, “First Names.”
Stoop Goodnoise is an endorsed artist by Steve Clayton Guitar Picks & Accessories as of January 2012, and were finalists in the Elbo Room’s “I AM Fest” Battle of the Bands.
Stoop has just finished their debut full length album titled “Crash Me, Cloud,” that will be released on January 28th 2012. It was produced by Brian Tepps & Dave Lugo of Sciphonic Productions and recorded at Million Yen Studios in Chicago.
