Too Drunk To Dream

…ain’t no drinking when the bottle’s dry…

Lead singer of Neutral Milk Hotel performed Sunday night in Columbus, OH

The fine, fine folks over at i guess i’m floating are reporting the legendarily reclusive Neutral Milk Hotel frontman Jeff Mangum played for a crowd at the Elephant 6 show Sunday night in Columbus, OH

Some of you are aware that Apples In Stereo frontman Robert Schneider, a fellow resident of Lexington, KY and co-founder of Elephant 6 Recording Company with Mangum, has embarked on a brief tour called the Elephant 6 Orchestra presents: “Holiday Surprise”. Naturally, one would hope to see Mangum join the extensive orchestra (surprise!) and (so far) it looks like he has. I’m not sure what his role is within the show, which artist is playing what, or how all of the Elephant 6 musicians are performing but I’ll be sure to find out soon; luckily, the final tour date for the tour is this Thursday in Lexington at The Red Mile and it’s for FREE! You can bet I’ll be there getting the scoop, but until then you can watch Mangum performing “Engine” last night in Columbus, OH. He’s still lurking in the shadows but that doesn’t seem to matter when it sounds oh, so good.

Tour ending grand finale of a full length NMH concert in Lexington, anyone? I’d hope so!

Jeff Mangum, Astra Taylor Married
By Jake Brown
January 9, 2008

Congratulations to Jeff Mangum and Astra Taylor, who were recently married. Mangum, as everybody knows, founded Neutral Milk Hotel, whose album In the Aeroplane Over the Sea is widely regarded as one of the best albums of the 1990s. Taylor is a writer and filmmaker who directed the documentary, Zizek! for which Neutral Milk Hotel drummer Jeremy Barnes provided the original music.

Glorious Noise received confirmation of the nuptials from Ms. Taylor via email. “It’s a fact,” she said.

[I’d also like to speculate that “recently married” might actually mean within the last two years, but since we’re dealing with the reclusive songwriter here, this is breaking news to us…]
