Album Review

Quirky post-grungers Harvey Danger maintain their gnarling punk influences on their second effort King James Version. Still playful for the mainstream and indie enough for the college kids, Harvey Danger are fresh and witty, continuously satirical throughout the dozen-song set list. Frontman Sean C. Nelson sings like a 12-year-old boy, and Jeff Linn's guitar hooks are fetching enough to make Harvey Danger's sophomore release undoubtedly solid. Nelson makes hilarious calls on pop culture — Kip Winger, the Marlboro Man — and twists new wave ambience with jaunty fragments of '80s anthem punk rock. Songs such as "(Theme From) Carjack Fever" and "Meetings With Remarkable Men (Show Me the Hero)" are wry, whereas others "Why I'm Lonely" and "You Miss the Point Completely I Get the Point Exactly" reflect on bittersweet heartbreaks. Harvey Danger aren't afraid to be funny, poking fun at what's supposed to be taken seriously. And if 1998's "Flagpole Sitta" didn't indicate such sharpness, the material rollicking on King James Version will.

The Kings Throne

I'll start by pointing out, Flagpole Sitta is not on this album. Another person who contributed his two cents, seems to think it is and also goes on to state it's on the Scooby Doo Soundtrack? Not sure about that, but I do know Flagpole Sitta IS on Where Have All the Merrymakers gone?. And there are better tracks on that album too, Private Helicopter, Carlotta Valdez and even with it's somber lyrics, Jack the Lion. Really killer album, especially for a group of UW students. Anyway, back to the album in hand, King James Version. So punk, so indie, so alternative, so Seattle. It's so good. Harvey Danger's best album by far. It's sad that record company disaster prevented this album from significant release. I even went as far to find a hard press copy on eBay, after I purchased the album here on iTunes. If you enjoy any type of Indie or Alternative, pick up a copy and enjoy.

Really solid album

I picked this album up after a show they did right after release and it has been a favorite ever since. It is a great album all the way though, if you at all enjoy alternative rock you really should check this band out. A few of my favorite tracks are, Authenticity, (This is) The Thrilling Conversation You've Been Waiting for, and Meetings With Remarkable Men.

underrated band

good stuff... and megs, flagpole sitta isn't "supposed to be" on this album. it's on "Where have all the merrymakers gone," which isn't even available on itunes.


Formed: 1994 in Seattle, WA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s

Although formed in Seattle during grunge's heyday, Harvey Danger took inspiration from a wide range of influences, from hometown heroes like Nirvana and Mudhoney to such melodic cult bands as the Pixies, the Buzzcocks, and Ride. The group began taking shape in 1994, when University of Washington students Sean Nelson (vocals), Jeff Lin (guitar), Aaron Huffman (bass), and Evan Sult (drums) came together to play cover songs at college parties. In time, the group developed a rabid cult following thanks...
