From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Scapegoat Wax was a hip-hop/rap/breakbeat act from Chico, California that was started by Marty James and Johnny Z (AKA J.DeVille). Johnny Z was in the band for a relatively brief time, but was active in Scapegoat Wax's earliest tracks, primarily those on "Luxurious," and was mentioned in each recorded version of the song "Almost Fine." The band was best known for their single Aisle 10 (Hello Allison), which reached moderate success in the US and was part of the Xbox video game Jet Set Radio Future as well as being on the soundtrack for Project Gotham Racing. Other singles that achieved lesser success include "Almost Fine" and "Lost Cause". Their single "Space to Share" has been included on several motion picture soundtracks and television shows, such as those of Clockstoppers, American Sweetheart and 40 Days 40 Nights, and an episode of "Malcom in the Middle".

The live band featured Koool G Murder on Bass who has played Bass for Everlast (musician) and also Eels (band).

The band supported the Fun Lovin' Criminals on a UK tour in the early 2000's.

Scapegoat Wax produced three albums during their active years, for three different labels. It should be noted, however, that many of the same songs appear on all three albums, with each adding refinements to existing songs and some original material.

Scapegoat Wax was originally part of Grand Royal Records, but when that label folded, moved on to Hollywood Records before eventually splitting up not long after the release of SWAX, in favor of returning to their indie label roots. Front-man Marty James and MDA became a part of a similar sounding band called One Block Radius in 2003, and continue to produce music together.
