Colin Meloy, live at The Orange Peel, Ashville NC, 11th April 2008

Lead singer for The Decemberists, Colin often goes out on solo tours of small venues such as The Orange Peel, why? You'd have to ask him, I guess he just likes it. He does put out some nice and quirky EPs for his tours mind you.

The band are named after a revolt in Russia in December 1836 or there-a-bouts (I'm writing this from my admittedly bad memory), though I think that Russians actually call them Decembrists. Whether Colin and Co. spelt it incorrectly on purpose to make it more English-speaker-friendly, or didn't know it's spelt that way, or whatever, I don't know and frankly don't care too much, I just know it's wrong. Well 95% sure anyway...see bad memory remark. Tracks 11 & 15 are unreleased btw.
