Colin Meloy to fan who ordered a Decemberists LP but mistakenly got a Christian Death LP: “DO NOT RETURN”

Decemberists Christian Death

Well this is a weirdly awesome story. Comedy writer T.J. Chambers ordered a copy of The DecemberistsHer Majesty from Amazon, but Amazon accidentally shipped him Christian Death‘s Only Theater of Pain instead. “Hi @amazon I ordered a @TheDecemberists LP and you sent me a band called Christian Death’s presumably seminal album “Only Theater Of Pain” so…I guess I’m gonna check it out? cc @colinmeloy @MRCHRISFUNK et al,” T.J. tweeted. Amazon Help got in touch with T.J. over Twitter, but if Decemberists frontman Colin Meloy gets his way, T.J. is gonna keep it. “That’s actually a pretty classic record. DO NOT RETURN,” Colin replied.
