Perhaps the closest I ever got to seeing Jeff Mangum & Co (also known as the infamous Neutral Milk Hotel) was a couple of years back when I saw a cover band called Neutral Uke Hotel who are in and of themselves absolutely awesome at what they do..but..
not close AT ALL. I know.
So, add another reason why this year’s Coachella music festival will be like none other in the past. Sure classics like Refused, At The Drive-In, Mazzy Star will all be there. Hell, there’s even going to be a Dre and Snoop headlining show but I’m willing to bet you Jeff Mangum’s set will be just as packed. For the die-hard indie fans, Mangum acts as divinity. NMH were iconic during their run and a set by Jeff is incredibly rare and sure to be notable.
Without further adieu, here’s some evidence of my scrounging around Soundcloud while we work out the rest of the kinks. Enjoy!
