Happy Belated 15th Anniversary TDIT!- Young Fresh Fellows Live 2001


Yes! The Young Fresh Fellows are well and very much alive, as this past year they've been quite active. About a week ago, the Fellows wrapped up a mini-opening tour with pals, Wilco with a handful of live shows in the Pacific Northwest. This summer the Fellows celebrated the 20th anniversary of Because We Hate You with a it's first release on vinyl (with a bonus disc of unreleased outtakes, For Those Naseous Times) and late last year on Record Store Day they released, Toxic Youth. This resurgence of YFF activity has me optimistic I might have an opportunity to see the band live hopefully in the near future. I've seen a few live videos of the band opening for Wilco on YouTube, but if anyone has any live audio recordings of any of the shows, please let me know, would love to share here!

Sorry for the lack of posts recently, been busy, but I'll make time for much more posts! I almost forgot to mention that this blog has been on the world-wide web for 15 years now, which is hard to believe sometimes. Thanks so much for your support all these years and I still get joy writing about and listening to live music. I haven't seen a live concert since the pandemic began, but soon the US/Canada borders will open up, so that's promising!

I thought it would be appropriate to post a Young Fresh Fellows show from their 2001 tour in support of Because We Hate You. It's a great sounding show with the Fellows set sandwiched between the Minus 5 and headliners, the Fastbacks. (I think I have the Minus 5 set from the same night, if so, I'll post it) I don't think the Fellows have toured the States as extensively since this tour, which took them to the East coast as well, with many of those dates opening for the Soft Boys.

Please do NOT sell or profit from this recording!
Do NOT convert to lossy formats, except for personal use
Please share!

Essential Listen of the Week:
In this case watch! Wilco and the Young Fresh Fellows combine forces for the finale encore in Seattle for their last show together on the tour.
