Biography

Death Cab for Cutie was born in 1997 at Western Washington University, as Gibbard’s solo project. Having spent that whole summer listening to Elliott Smith’s Either/Or, Gibbard had written a set of songs too sad to play in his then-band Pinwheel. Taking his name from a Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band track featured in The Beatles’ 1967 film Magical Mystery Tour, Gibbard recorded the demo You Can Play These Songs with Chords. Following its strong reception, Gibbard turned Death Cab into a full-time project, enlisting the recording engineer, Chris Walla, on guitar, and current/former housemates Nicholas Harmer and Nathan Good on bass and drums, respectively.
