On to real Sacred Cows: Neutral Milk Hotel. I admit to being very late to the game on this and the entire Elephant 6 collective..
I understand this too. I've seen them live years ago, like their albums, but cannot CANNOT
fathom why they are deities. They were back then too; the crowd was more crazed for them than Superchunk, the band that I went to see. I understand why people like them, but I don't get why the love
them to the point where, after only two albums, they're treated with such reverance. I've had discussions about this with friends who also agree, so you are not alone.
And why anyone would wade through how many hours of amateur night just to hear a solo accoustic version of "Engine" is beyond me. I applaud the effort and enjoy hearing about it, but I'd rather watch Hellboy
for the millionth time than to be a part of that idol worship.
Doesn't DJ MURPHY
have some shit he'd like to swing towards The Doors?!
