"My Red Airline DLX showed up yesterday, I have not put it down since. I haven't slept, all I am doing is playing this guitar. The craftsmanship is exceptional and I can no longer imagine playing any other guitar." _Rich Kolodzie
Led by Helena, MT, native Colin Meloy, Portland, OR's the Decemberists craft theatrical, hyper-literate pop songs that draw heavily from late-'60s British folk acts like Fairport Convention and Pentangle and the early-'80s college rock grandeur of the Waterboys and R.E.M.
The group, which consisted of Meloy, Conlee, Query, Funk, and drummer John Moen, made the move to the major leagues by signing with Capitol Records in advance of 2006's The Crane Wife, which managed to hit number 35 on the Billboard 200.
