It's REALLY good. :)
yes it is.
WHY DON'T I HAVE A TICKET TO SEE THEM? whine whine whine.
concentrated your attention on getting a ticket for the 27th?
i actually HAD a ticket to see them, in vancouver. but it was cancelled, and rescheduled to when i was out of the country.
and standing and level 1 seating tickets for the london show are both sold out, and there aren't even any on eBay...
i thought you meant february and that some low key thing was happening that had passed me by.
anyway: ace record.
A current favourite. Great, great record.
I'm going to see them on the 8th Feb. Woo! Anybody else going? Anybody else excited? Anybody else want to lick my face?
just need to find a gig mate, why do none of my friends understand the decemberists?
I also just got the Crane Wife for Xmas, mmm...
So my mate Albi fell in love with it. He's since gone out and bought three Decemberists albums. He has also bought the Crane Wife for our friend Helen for christmas, and as a result of this two more of our friends have taken a keen interest
There are now five of us going on the 8th : )
but I think it's great
and the album is possibly greater. thats possible sure...
im seeing them in southampton in 2007, anyone else gonna be there?
I got Picaresque for Christmas and can't get enough of it, I've played it more than Ys and the Snowden album. My friend said The Crane Wife is 'smoother' than Picaresque, so I'll assume that means better?
More sorta accessible.
But I prfer Picaresque, I think.
if there are any left....
I can't go :(
meaning i have no one to go with ! LE SULK
except Perfect Crime #2. which is diabolical. and Summersong is a bit bland too. but they're still exciting and fun and i can't wait for the february show!
long three parted prog epics! \o/ Ace album
actually - it's my fav album of theirs...
not that i had anyone to go with anyway.
just saw them a few months ago... was good but once a year is more than enough..
twice in a year is probably enough
only level 3 seating was available. fuck thaaaaaat.
level 1? http://www.ticketweb.co.uk/user/?region=gb_london&query=detail&event=182544
GO GO GO!
For the Shepherds Bush Empire gig if anyone's interested
for what you paid for them, i am not.
I haven't heard the new record yet, could anyone pin-point the best track?
all bits of 'the crane wife'
i'm going to listen to it nowww.
I discovered the Decemberists start of last year after being suggested it by Amazon after buying Funeral. (Sometimes Amazon are good other times i pity their recommendation process). Eventually got my friend to appreciate them by playing him The Mariner's Revenge Song in my car. He listened quietly for all 8 and a half minutes then proclaimed it to be awesome. And now i have 3 other friends interested and i have my tickets for Feb 8th sitting in my room and im muay happpy. (May be less happy if i dont get Arcade Fire tickets tomorrow)
