Harvey Danger was an American alternative rock band formed in the early ’90s and was composed of University of Washington students Sean Nelson, Jeff Lin, Aaron Huffman and Evan Sult.
After playing cover songs at college parties, the group raised the interest of Greg Lover, founder of independent record label Arena Rock.
Their first single “Flagpole Sitta” was a critical and commercial success. Released in 1997, the track was taken from Harvey Danger’s debut album “Where have all the merrymakers gone?”.
In 2000, the band returned with a second album “King James version” but it failed to chart.
The following year Sean & co. announced an indefinite hiatus.
A new album “Little by little” came out in 2005 but the reunion lasted a few years leading the band to put an end to it.
In recent years, Nelson released “Nelson sings Nilsson”, a tribute album to Harry Nilsson.
In 2011 Jeff Lin founded Captricity, a cloud-based service that captures and converts data generated by paper forms and documents.
Evan Sult formed in 2008 a two piece indie rock band called Sleepy Kitty while former Harvey Danger bassist Aaron Huffman died of respiratory failure following a lengthy illness in 2016.
