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)
Hype City Soundtrack Youtube
On Avery Island
In The Aeroplane Over The Sea
Ferris Wheel On Fire Youtube

As usual there's a playlist incorporating the podcast and selected songs
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
