By Robert Flaggert
When asked about the kind of
music his band played, singer/song-
writer of the Young Fresh Fellows
Scott McCaughey had this to say: "I
just don't see any reason for listen-
ing to or playing just one kind of
music. It's like liking only one kind
of person... there has to be a vari-
And there is. If you go ahead and
compare them to the Replacements,
or rank them in one specific genre of
music you'll be mistaken. The Fel-
lows play a "variety" of different

saying it so well) and Hutchinson,
Carroll, and Sangster pushing and
pulling the listener, we are exposed
to a number of dissimilar tunes -
the likes of which may never have
been heard before.
On their current tour, the Fellows
are being received quite well across
the Midwest considering the fact that
they hail from Seattle and tour
mainly along the West coast. Rumor
has it that since the release of the
new LP the boys have been given
some sort of renewed energy to
reduce stages to smoldering cinders,
and home stereos into flame lapping.
