old fresh fellows

A fun thing about moving to Seattle after reading comics for several decades is the amount of comics still just existing ambiently around the city, even after several layers of tech booms and gentrification. Spotted today: mid-80s transplant Pete Bagge’s poster for some upcoming dates by early-80s band Young Fresh Fellows.

The bobby-soxer and propeller beanie look caused an echo: for at least a decade after hearing Twisting by They Might Be Giants, I assumed Young Fresh Fellows were some pop band from the 1950s. (I still don’t know what they really look like tbh.)
