The Money Shot: The Decemberists Get "Creepy Flu", Poop & Crabs

The latest headlines...

Don't bother trying to pin down Decemberists (Go Triad)
MS: Just back from a cancelled European tour, drummer John Moen admits that with the rise in popularity and touring, there are still a few kinks to be worked out before becoming bona-fide stars.

"A couple of people came down with a couple of creepy, flu like illnesses," said Moen . "Basically the tour was a little ill-conceived from the beginning. It was kind of known by the time we left (the states) that it wasn't going to be that great of a tour, as far as attendance, and we were probably going to go into debt, paying our crew to be there. But then there were a couple of shows that were going to warrant being there, then those shows had to be cance led because of the sickness.

MS: “I liked to shack up with a few of the girls who worked at (strip club) the Seventh Veil. . . . One of the girls in that scene was named Cameron. Every single one of us (slept with) her at one point or another . . . she gave each and every one of us crabs.”

Guest List: Jose Gonzalez (Pitchfork)
MS: Favorite TV Show at the Moment - Even though I don't watch that much, I still love...I actually feel like "South Park", even though "The Simpsons" was my favorite, I feel like "South Park" has grown on me. I thought it was all about poop, but actually it's got some substance underneath.
