The Dark Passage of The Decemberists
On stands September 04, 2006

 

FILTER Issue 22

On a stage set somewhere between fantasy and reality,Filter joins Colin Meloy and his band of vaudevillian vagabonds, the Decemberists, to chase their music through the dense flora of an overgrown Japanese garden and into the air miles above their home base of Portland, Oregon. Plus: We take a lesson in hip-hop philosophy from The Roots; wrangle recluses Bonnie "Prince" Billy and Dwight Yoakam for a schizophrenic chat; document the first and last stateside interviews with the ex-members of Refused; pay tribute to kids' classic Pete & Pete; and print an unpublished short story from Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright San Shepard. Not to mention; Emily Haines, Kasabian, The Black Keys, Sofia Coppola, Dirty Pretty Things, Sloan, My Morning Jacket's Jim James, and suprise cameos by four heavy metal heroes.
