Where Have All The Merrymakers Gone: An Interview with Harvey Danger

FUSE TV - Where Have All The Merrymakers Gone: An Interview with Harvey Danger

Seventeen years ago, a young band from Seattle released Where Have All the Merrymakers Gone?, a definitive indie power pop punk record at a time and place where grunge reigned supreme. The album housed "Flagpole Sitta," a power chord-heavy anthem that would become a marker of the late '90s, with regular spins on Dawson's Creek and a place in a pivotal scene in American Pie. Harvey Danger was more than this song, and still is, and they want you to know it.

No Sleep Records will reissue the classic album on July 29, pressing it on vinyl for the first time ever. We sat down with frontman Sean Nelson to talk about the band's earliest days, their first record, "Flagpole Sitta," and the endless battle against the "one-hit wonder" title.
