Neutral Milk Hotel 9.15pm - 10.45pm
Featuring Jeff Mangum, Scott Spillane, Julian Koster, and Jeremy Barnes. (walkingwallofwords.com)
The cult status of enigmatic headliners Neutral Milk Hotel is a testament to the power and longevity of their music. Their seminal 1998 masterpiece ‘In The Aeroplane Over The Sea' is a record held in legendary regard by so many - and with good reason. The emotionally visceral, fuzzy, freakish folk found within defies categorization and famously reclusive frontman and centrepiece Jeff Mangum's lyrics explore history, faith and spirituality with an eloquence that remains unparalleled.
Following a long, self-imposed period of inactivity, this year sees the lineup of Mangum, Scott Spillane, Julian Koster and Jeremy Barnes finally reunited.
At the request of the band: NO PHOTOGRAPHY OR VIDEO RECORDING ALLOWED. This includes cell phones.
Support Band Early Ghost
Made up of members hailing from both Brighton and London, Early Ghost have built up a reputation as one of the most exciting acts to emerge out of Brighton's fledging neo-‐psych scene. Coming together over a shared love of The Doors, Early Ghost's unique sound sits somewhere squarely between the garage-‐driven psychedelia of The 13th Floor Elevators and the Californian surf of The Growlers.
With a wide array of instrumentation that includes both brass and banjos, Early Ghost may be helping pioneer the UK post-‐psych scene, however the vast range of sounds afforded to the expansive band has made them stand out amongst their peers. Over their short lifespan, the sextet have already supported such acts as Beirut, First Aid Kit and Jacco Gardner, as well as performing at Green Man, Hop Farm, Camden Crawl and The Great Escape festivals amongst others.
