"We've never been the sort of group that has lived and breathed indie-ness" *cough*
f**king sell out. Dont get me started on the merits of selling more than ten albums to indie-losers who hang around Rough Trade like indie-flies hang around indie-schmindie-shit.
Good on them, I hope they become the biggest band in the world - at least it would be someone decent for a change.
Reading down that piece, I see the Tarkio stuff is going to be released - can't recommend it highly enough.
some band wants to better themselves and they should restrict themselves for the sake of indie-kids who want them to be poor for their music? gimme a break.
i don't even like them, but good on them for getting such a good deal.
slagging them off!
It's just a catchy title, though I can see how it could be misconstrued that way.
Decemberists are truly awful you cant believe that a major would want to waste money on them?
a month ago. it's irrelevant. they have complete creative control and it's just now that they'll be able to afford to push the record and for people to really hear them.
Is FACT now innit.
I don't like the Decemberists much. Lawd knows I've tried though.
My special friend who has the same name as me and might be in the band told me.
interested to see if they head in a more conciously commerical direction (record company pressure or not...)
though judging from much of Picaresque this may not be a bad thing at all.
But what the hell. Go Colin!
