Artist: The Young Fresh Fellows

Album: Because We Hate You

Appears On (Mixes): The Boys And Girls Are Lifting Up Their Plates

Song Notes: This is from the last (to date) Young Fresh Fellows record, Because We Hate You and like the Final Suite, it's the at the end of the record. A great story-song that I'm surprised I haven't put it on anything yet. It's also about pop music, but in a different way; where the Residents album is about the fascism of pop music and pop radio, the Fellows song is just a little slice of fake band history (though in interviews Scott McCaughey would sometimes claim that it was a real band. He also claimed that one time he had Tad Hutchison going that it WAS a real band, even though he'd made it up, and he'd also mentioned something about getting the name from Tad's answering machine, so who knows about the genesis! I don't have much to say about this track (other than that it's one of my favorite Fellows songs), but some really great names. I love the idea of a band called "Only You and the Can Prevent Forest Fires" (when I first saw the song title, I thought it was a typo until I'd heard the song!) and "Fall of Sound" is a great name for a record. (And remarkably, looking at the first page of google, it doesn't look like anyone's taken it!) - Rev. Syung Myung Me
