Fans are in the Mangum
and over the moon!
By Blurt Staff
Fancy some unreleased Neutral Milk Hotel, fanboys? You’ve
gotten your wish: head over to band mainman Jeff Mangum’s NMH website,
WalkingWallOfWords.com, and in addition to assorted ephemera, Mangum solo tour
dates, etc., there’s “Oh Sister” and “Ferris Wheel,” from 1995 and 1993,
respectively, posted for your listening pleasure. And it’s not an exercise in
randomness, either. On Nov. 22 Mangum plans to issue a vinyl box (it will also
be available digitally) featuring all of the band’s albums plus a brace of 15 unreleased
*1996’s On Avery
*1998’s In the Aeroplane Over the Sea LP
*Everything Is EP 10″
Wheel on Fire EP 10″
1945″ 7-inch pic disc
*”Little Birds” 7-inch
*”You’ve Passed” 7-inch
*two 24″ by 24″ posters.
A portion of the proceeds of the box sales will go to the
Children of the Blue Sky chaity, as will portions of ticket sales for to Mangum’s upcoming tour.
