“Two-Headed Boy” (Live in NYC in 1998) (Video)

    To celebrate the vinyl reissue of Neutral Milk Hotel’s In the Aeroplane Over the Sea and On Avery Island, Merge Records has unearthed some live footage of the band at the height of their powers in 1998, performing “Two-Headed Boy” at NYC’s the Knitting Factory. Every news item about Neutral Milk Hotel inevitably ends with the writer hoping for a reunion, but I won’t do that; Jeff Mangum died young and left a beautiful corpse without dying at all. [Merge]
