At five hours away from anything resembling a major city, Walla Walla, Washington is astoundingly isolated. It was in this seclusion that pop enthusiasts Peter Richards and Andrew Hall started a thing called Dude York while everyone they knew was out of town. The tools were wrong, but the elements were there; this is pop music at maximum volume, indebted less to the garage rock phenomenon exploding on the West Coast than it is to Jonathan Richman, Swedish pop, and the ideal of contemporary timelessness.
