Deer Tick Lovingly Cover Harvey Danger’s ‘Flagpole Sitta’
Providence rockers turn out shaggy take on 1998 wonder hit
Why bust out Harvey Danger’s awesome 1998 track “Flagpole Sitta” for the A.V. Undercover? “I fucking love that song,” proclaimed Deer Tick’s John McCauley. “And I definitely saw Harvey Danger live.” (Hey, so did we!) The shaggy New England rockers provide a charmingly loose take on the neatly buttoned power-pop tune, and McCauley throws in a genuinely ecstatic fist pump at the 3:24 mark.
