'97 mentality

1997 > 2007

Exhibit B

These days Jeff Mangum emerges from hiding to play 'cow object' for the Apples in Stereo. Ten years ago he was a bit good. Here's his Neutral Milk Hotel at the Highbury Garage, London Town again. Why did I miss this show? I blame the NME: hanging on to britpop as the wheels fell off, they derided NMH as wet Beatles-worshipping acid casualties. While championing Cast and Ocean Colour Scene. Eughhkk, as Pusha T would say. Nowadays, a quick mp3 sets that sort of horseshit to rights. Bloody NME.
