Jeff Mangum, mastermind
of Neutral Milk Hotel
has penned a huge variety of songs that weren't released on his two official records (In The Aeroplane Over The Sea
and On Avery Island
.) These songs were instead relegated
to the occasional live performance
or the bowels of some demo tape
Additionally, Jeff has released a sound collage piece entitled Orange Twin Field Works that he recorded in Bulgaria. A solo acoustic live album of (mostly) Neutral Milk Hotel tunes was also released as Live At Jittery Joe's. They were both on Orange Twin Records.
A partial (I can't believe myself to have collected all of them) list of songs:
I'm attempting to node the lyrics to these songs. It will take a while, since I have to listen and interpret the lyrics myself. Many of these songs are stellar, and I think it's worth the effort.
