Lunchtime Concert: Edition One (Neutral Milk Hotel)

Lunchtime Concert: Edition One (Neutral Milk Hotel)

by The 405 (Google+), 04 December 2012

Every Tuesday at 12pm (GMT) we aim to bring you a full-length concert to watch during your lunch break. Sort of like Orange Wednesdays, but not at all.

Despite only releasing a couple of studio albums and a pair of EPs, it's fair to say that Neutral Milk Hotel had a pretty strong influence on many bands you probably love and cherish. However, you probably never saw them live.

Yes Jeff Mangum was the driving force behind the band, and as a solo artist he's been a bit more active over the past few years (he recently announced new tour dates for Jan/Feb 2013 too) but watching Neutral Milk Hotel in their prime is unfortunately a long distant dream.

We can't offer you a personalised solo performance of NMH songs, or a time machine with a one-way ticket to the early 90s, but what we can offer you is their performance at The Knitting Factory, NY from March 1998.

Unpack your ham sandwich, take a bite and enjoy this concert:

    The Essential Guide To: The Elephant 6 Collective

    by James Burg

    Back before Myspace, bands would record whole albums onto a Tascam 4 –track tape recorder; yeah that’s right kids, tapes! If you wanted to check out a new band, you literally had to mail order a tape, and then fast forward through the shit. Nowadays, of course you can tell a band is shit from their Myspace profile picture and from how long it takes to load their page. Anyhoot, the Elephant 6 Recording Company was a group of guys who began recording lo-fi tapes in their bed... (continued) [read more]
