YOU TUBER POSTS ORIGINAL NEUTRAL MILK HOTEL – IN AN AEROPLANE OVER THE SEA

Ok, so this may not be a post for everyone, but for me this is good news….  YouTuber, OptimusLuffe, has posted this super-rare VHS of the original recording and video for Neutral Milk Hotel’s cult classic ‘In An Aeroplane Over The Sea’.  Prepare yourself for something seriously lo-fi…

His description sums it up rather neatly, so to quote:

“This was distributed through the Neutral Milk Hotel Box Set via VHS tapes. The first 3 orders got a tape containing the music video signed by Jeff himself. Sadly, the tape’s plastic was very lo-fi so it melted in the player if you played it even once. Luckily I got this information in time and managed to record this very rare video before it melted.

The video features Jeff Mangum dressed up as an asian loli eating a cylindery-shaped shortcake (perhaps a reference to his previous work as well as his obsession toward a young female [Anne Frank]?). It slowly twists in unexpected fashions and there are some still-shots in which a female is eating the shortcake (possibly poisoned which would explain why he wants to save her). This might be a reference to the time-machines (Oh Comely).

This is the EARLY DEMO VERSION FEATURING GUEST MUSICIANS. It is rumored Robert Fripp beatboxed in this recording”.

Nice.
