  • One of the few Seattle bands who can't be classified under the dreaded "G" word, Harvey Danger's muse lies closer to Sebadoh than Soundgarden. The band revels in pop culture, a cynical outlook towards life and a melodic sensibility that manages to mothball some great hooks in a pool of lo-fi sensibilities and squawky guitar. Among the more notable cultural touchstones dropped in verse are the Psychic Friends Network, Rage Against The Machine and Moby Dick.
  • Hooking up with Team Dresch producer John Goodmanson, the boys keep any kind of gloss from entering into their sound. Their break-out single "Flagpole Sitta" is anthemic in the way the Call's "Let The Day Begin" was back in the '80s. Utilizing plenty of jittery rhythms, cooing harmonies and a lo-fi guitar buzz, songs such as "Carlotta Valdez" and "Jack The Lion" make for perfect slices of pomo punk. With this kind of quirky pop sensibility and slightly cynical edge, Harvey Danger ensures that the hunt for merrymakers isn't that far a trip.
Professional Reviews
Magnet (11-12/97, p.68) - "...a marriage of the ferocity and iconoclasm of Sonic Youth to the tender, ragged craftiness of Sebadoh."

Option (11-12/97, pp.97-98) - "...comes across like would-have-been-Nirvana disciples that had the good fortune to hear records by pure popsters like Redd Kross in their formative years....could raise the eyebrows of listeners looking for minor league prospects with big league arms..."
