3/5 is the first album by Les Savy Fav. It was released in 1997 by Self-Starter Foundation.[3] The LP release came in a pack of shower caps[citation needed] and is fairly difficult to find, sometimes fetching high prices on eBay. Coincidentally, only three-fifths of the line-up on this album, the band's first, remain in the present day line-up, as drummer Patrick Mahoney was replaced by Harrison Haynes before the group's second album, The Cat and the Cobra, and guitarist Gibb Slife left before the recording of the Emor: Rome Upside Down EP.

Having gone out of print, the album was re-issued in 2006 on the Frenchkiss label, minus the shower caps.[citation needed]
