Song Notes: This one's from the album This One's For The Ladies, their first with Kurt Bloch from The Fastbacks on lead guitar. A while ago, a tribute album to The Young Fresh Fellows came out, and there was a line in the press release that stuck with me: "You’re forced to revisit the originals and forced to damn yourself for not including “Rotation” on your "Best of '89" mix tape. You can’t go back. Sorry again." And damned if it wasn't true. This is one of the harder rockin' things the Fellows recorded -- they were usually a little bit poppier. I typically describe them to folks who haven't heard them as "They Might Be Giants, if instead of being weaned on The Residents and Frank Zappa, if they'd grown up with The Sonics' records". This One's For The Ladies is probably my favorite Fellows record, though they're all pretty good. - Rev. Syung Myung Me
