Unsung heroes of the Seattle rock community, the Young Fresh Fellows were one of the first independent bands from the rainy city to earn a nationwide reputation in the 1980s, gaining an enthusiastic cult following and the approval of critics. Few bands were more admired by their peers than the Fellows, and their skewed but tuneful mix of British Invasion-era pop, garage rock, offbeat humor, and pop culture obsessiveness had a long shelf life, with the band still making joyful noise four decades after they began. 

Originally comprised of vocalist/bassist Scott McCaughey, guitarist Chuck Carroll, and drummer Tad Hutchison, the Young Fresh Fellows were formed in 1983 and debuted in 1984 with The Fabulous Sounds Of The Pacific Northwest, an understated pop nugget featuring whimsical numbers including "Teenage Dogs in Trouble," "Power Mowers Theme," and "Rock and Roll Pest Control,” produced by honorary Fellow Conrad Uno at his basement/garage Egg Studios.

After recruiting bassist Jim Sangster to allow frontman McCaughey to switch over to guitar, the Fellows followed with 1985’s Topsy Turvy (gathering a rave review from Rolling Stone) and their first national tour. 1987's The Men Who Loved Music was their breakthrough release, with the absurd college radio hit “Amy Grant,” solidified the band's cult following.  The Replacements’ Paul Westerberg considered the Fellows kindred spirits, and the two groups often toured in tandem.

After 1988's Totally Lost, Carroll left the group. In the wake of his departure, the remaining three Fellows issued an authorized bootleg arguably-titled Beans And Tolerance, before enlisting Fastbacks kingpin Kurt Bloch for 1989's roaring This One’s For The Ladies (with fan faves “Taco Wagon,” Bloch’s “Lost Track Of Time” and Kinks cover “Picture Book”), followed by a slew of 45s on various U.S. and international labels.
