This the only appearance of the band on LoveLine, ever. Adam a new ‘Harvey Danger’ fan ends up not so much of a fan after this episode, some fans feel it was Adam’s fault, others disagree, once again listen decide for yourself!
“The band was 35 minutes late due to problems with their limo ride. Luckily karma stepped in and these guys haven’t seen the inside of a limo since 1998.” – Pulseczar on LLT, possibly quoting Adam talking about this show and the band at a later date.
From Wiki: Harvey Danger was an American rock band that formed in Seattle, Washington in 1993, and rose to prominence in 1998 with the single “Flagpole Sitta“, which is also used as the theme tune to the British sitcom Peep Show. Their music has been categorized as genres indie rock and alternative rock. On August 29, 2009, the band played its final show at the Crocodile Cafe in Seattle. The band’s debut album, Where have all the merrymakers gone?, has sold over 500,000 copies, with “Flagpole Sitta” still receiving regular airplay around the world. On July 29, 2014, 17 years to the day after its initial release, the album was re-released on vinyl as an LP by the independent record label No Sleep Records.
Since the band’s breakup, Nelson has continued to write and edit for The Stranger alternative weekly newspaper, which he had done for most of the duration of the band’s career. As of 2016, he is the publication’s arts editor and music critic. Huffman also worked for the newspaper as an arts director.
Where have all the merrymakers gone? was released, on vinyl for the first time on July 29, 2014 by the independent record label No Sleep Records.
The packaging for Where have all the merrymakers gone? LP will feature new artwork, designed by Huffman, Sult and Nelson, using the iconic house from the original cover art now updated to reflect the passage of time, now surrounded by freeways and skyscrapers.
Founding bassist Aaron Huffman died of respiratory failure on March 6, 2016, at age 43. His death was reported in The Stranger by his former bandmate Sean Nelson.
This starts just a few minutes late. Adam says Harvey Danger will be in later and that he loves their song. Drew is reading a fax addressed to Adam from a recent caller. This guy’s wife was going to have twins but one would probably have to be aborted. This letter states they didn’t listen to him when he called in. They talked to him for 10 minutes on two different shows. Apparently he tried to call in again but didn’t get through.
Adam uses the reverb button to demonstrate how he’d make an announcement on a bullhorn if he had sex when he was 14. Caller John asks Drew if crystal meth makes your brain crumble and Drew gets fired up about these wives’ tales.
Adam mentions his high school prom date Jenny died about 4 years after they went. She died during an aerobics class from a rare heart condition. Coming back from a break Adam says Drew is still in the bathroom. Producer Ann says he uses the women’s bathroom and doesn’t put the seat down. Apparently Harvey Danger had some trouble with their limo and are still on their way.
The band comes in and Adam starts to praise their song. Drew tries to move the show along but Adam has his mic shut off.
Adam and Drew attempt to do a LoveLine reenactment but the caller tries to answer while Adam and Drew are talking. The reason they have to make fun of him is because he asked for some “reinsurance.”
Adam talks about the time Drew and him went to the pottery barn and picked up a salad bowl for Ann’s birthday. They think back to an Insane Clown Posse show and how crazy
the guys were. Apparently Violent Jay was just locked up. Drew says it’s disrespectful for Adam to see his therapist when he is drunk.
