Death Cab for Cutie originally formed in Bellingham, WA, in 1997 with their casette-only Elsinor Records release, you can play
these songswith chords (later expanded and reissued by Barsuk on CD). The group, which appropriated its name from a song
title by '60s UK rock ensembleThe Bonzo Dog Band, has consistently released outstanding albums over the years, gaining a
wider audience and fanbase with successful USand international tours, and seeping into the consciousness of mainstream
America with the success of their latest albums and frequentmentions on the hit TV show, The O.C. None of this attention,
however, has changed Ben Gibbard's emotionally powerful songwriting skills orthe warm production of Chris Walla, except that
both keep getting better and better over time.
