Scapegoat Wax - Aisle 10 (Hello Allison)

Aisle 10 was the first single off of Scapegoat Wax's ill fated album Okeeblow. The album came out in the summer of 2001, just before Grand Royal went out of business. Normally, I probably would've passed over this single, mainly because Scapegoat Wax is just such a horrible name. But fortunately for Scapegoat Wax, the single that happened to fall in my hands at the radio station had remixes by Madlib and Kutmasta Kurt. That made me wonder just what this Scapegoat Wax would sound like. I no longer have that single, but if I remember correctly the Madlib remix was boring and the Kutmasta Kurt remix was decent, but the actual song was fire. I'm not sure what became of Scapegoat Wax after the Grand Royal breakup. An Amazon search shows that he released the album, Swax on Hollywood Records in 2002, but it appears to have many of the same songs as Okeeblow. Anyhow, "Aisle 10 (Hello Allison)" by Scapegoat Wax is a feel good, fun listening pop song reminiscent of Beck in his Mellow Gold days. The sometimes singing, sometimes rapping style of Marty James and the decent beat make this one a keeper.
