Meloy went on to lead Tarkio and later The Decemberists, while the Caseys formed the Watercarvers Guild with David's father Darrell and brother Nathan.[citation needed] The band's genre can be described as "alt-country," "indie," and "folk." Former Band members cite R.E.M., The Replacements, The Beatles and Uncle Tupelo as influences.
