The alternative pop quartet Harvey Danger was formed in Seattle in 1994 by University of Washington students Sean Nelson (vocals), Jeff Lin (guitar), Aaron Huffman (bass), and Evan Sult (drums). Initially setting out merely to play cover versions of their favorite songs at area parties, in time the group developed a rabid cult following, and in 1996 they teamed with renowned local producer John Goodmanson to record the tracks which were ultimately shaped into their 1997 debut LP Where Have All the Merrymakers Gone? Originally issued on the indie label Arena Rock, the album was soon picked up by Slash Records after the infectious single “Flagpole Sitta” became a local hit; released nationally, the track became a national smash during the summer of 1998. Two years later, the follow-up King James Version arrived. ~ Jason Ankeny, All Music Guide
