The Decemberists are pure music. They innovate with combinations of Pop, Indie and Folk and have a sound all their own. By this time, hopefully people will have been influenced by their example.

Great band.

I still prefer The Waterboys and Robyn Hitchcock, to be honest, but if they get a few more great records out they may just jump up there.

Saw them at Bonnaroo. Played a 90 minute set in the middle of a very, very hot day. Played all their hits, frontman bantered with the crowd. They have some kind of funny rivalry with Bela Fleck. During encore they challenged him to a 'pick off' at Telluride & did sorta mocking versions of his picking style. I think it was all in good fun.

Security Question:

Which letter is Springsteen's band named after?
