Neutral Milk Hotel

New episode Bagpipe alert.

Somehow we have a really long episode about a band with only two official studio albums. Although one of those albums is very very critically acclaimed. (Though not by all of us)

We've only gone and done NEUTRAL MILK HOTEL.

We discuss, Charlie Sheen vs Emilio Estevez, outsider art, Jeff Mangum and his obsession with Anne Frank, and brass instruments that sound drunk. Also Nick gets very very angry!!

Re-joining Nick and Ewan are Norway's finest stand-up comedian Aaron Troye-White, and the man who gave us the best of our Bowie impressions back in season one, Lael Wageneck.

As there are only a couple of releases, we also take a detour through some of the early EPs and unreleased stuff. And obviously we spend time on their seminal LP In the Aeroplane over the Sea

We discuss the following (some are on Spotify, some are not)

If you fancy supporting the show, either leave us a review somewhere (Apple Podcasts would be awesome) or ....drumroll.... JOIN OUR PATREON (and help keep the lights on, I don't like the dark) which is over here

Regardless of whether you can chip in, a 5 star review (if you feel like it) on Apple or Podchaser would help enormously. Or just tell your mates!!

Jonathan is the genius behind our theme music and you can hear more of his stuff on his Bandcamp

About the Podcast

Temporary Fandoms
Temporary Fandoms: The music immersion podcast
Temp Fans is a podcast that explores the complete studio discography of legacy, popular, or downright obscure artists. We started out as a Facebook group where we listen to an album a day by a chosen artist, from start to finish, even the bad bits. And that's what this podcast is.

Join us as we dive through the good, the bad and the what? Take your time and listen along. Feel free to pause us and go listen on Spotify or wherever to the albums. Or go to our Spotify playlist where you will find the pod spliced up and inserted into a curated playlist of selected tracks.

To date Nick and Ewan have been joined by an ever growing roster of guests, who all have one thing in common; they want the chance to talk about artists that inspire passion in them. That's not to say this is a gushfest, there are plenty of dissenting opinions on the way.
