Scapegoat Wax Biography (Wikipedia)

Scapegoat Wax was an American hip-hop/rap/breakbeat band from Chico, California that was started by Marty James and Jonny Z (AKA J.DeVille).

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, an episode of "Malcolm in the Middle" and the unaired pilot of "Wonderfalls".

Scapegoat Wax produced three albums during their active years: Luxurious (1999), Okeeblow (2001), and SWAX (2002). Many of the same songs appear on all three albums, with each adding refinements to existing songs and some original material. The band was associated with three different labels. They were originally part of Grand Royal Records, but when that label folded, they 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. Johnny Z was in the band for a relatively brief time, but he was active in Scapegoat Wax's earliest tracks, primarily those on Luxurious, and was mentioned in each recorded version of the song "Almost Fine."
