that kind of stuff gets real tricky. as far as i know they lived primarily in oak harbor (that's where tom hazelmeyer was stationed in the marines(?) and where he started amphetamine reptile records so he could release the accused, halo of flies and the thrown-ups - ed fotheringham's band). the accused toured so much, i'm not so sure they had fixed addresses. i know that soon after a while they broke up a few times. now the core of the accused is the fartz again. ya know, i get so confused on that one... were they the accused first, then the fartz, or the other way around? and gruntruck was in the middle of all that somewhere. where's dana collins when you need him????
still, calling the accused a 'seattle band' is like calling the sonics or the wailers or the kingsmen 'seattle bands'. sure, seattle (being the biggest local city) always took the credit, but actually had no real claim to them. they were from elsewhere in the region - cities with their own traditions and styles.
olympia should be commended for resisting the suckhole drag of seattle for so long. of course, eventually, even most of those bands started releasing on subpop and shit.
