Neutral Milk Hotel

Phil McMullen, Ptolemaic Terrascope, September 1996

NEUTRAL MILK HOTEL isn't so much a band as a concept. The product of the singularly imaginative mind locked inside Jeff Mangum's head, it's been a band in the past and will be a band again, but at the same time it can be just Jeff and a few friends or even just Jeff and some odd bits of furniture with peculiar acoustic properties.
