The word nerds in the Decemberists aren't the only band from Portland to have a record label based in this iconic building. It would seem that the transplants in Hockey have recently signed a deal with Capitol Records.

No word if the big 'ole label will re-release their (previously self-released) Mind Chaos album, but if they do, I suggest using this song as the single...

Hockey will regale us all with stories about how they now share a label with Kylie Minogue, Katy Perry, and Bob Seger (!) when they play the Doug Fir on the 19th of this month.
