We’ve come to the end of the journey at last: Harvey Danger is hanging it up. The Seattle quartet may not be calling it quits with legions of fans by the band’s side, but at least Sean Nelson and company will go out with a clearly defined legacy, and that legacy is called “Flagpole Sitta,” the fuzzy power-pop classic that spoke to a generation of ambiguous-feeling teenagers in the 1990s and impelled offices filled with Internet Age young adults to film choreographed music videos celebrating the fact that they get drunk and play ping pong on the job. It’s a little unfortunate for a band to be ultimately defined for its one charting hit and seven words (“I’m not sick, but I’m not well”), but hey, at least it’s actually an entertaining, legitimately rocking anthem to be forever stuck with (the same can’t be said for Falco). If you get a chance, check out the band’s sophomore release “King James Version” as well as the solid piano-pop in 2005’s “Little By Little,” so as not to let the rest of a decent catalogue plunge deeper into obscurity.
