Spelling correction: it's The Decemberists!

Yes, Colin Meloy's band is The Decemberists... best to correct that error, given their passionate following. Although we might be forgiven, since the English name for the Russian revolt of 1825 is usually spelled without the third 'e'. As the band's original drummer Rachel Blumberg eplained it: "Well, it was inspired by the revolutionary group, but it’s also sort of an nod to the month of December, and the idea of turning inward during the dark months. And that’s why we chose that spelling."  You can learn more about the band at decemberists.com
