As reported on the Glorious Noise blog, Jeff Mangum (Neutral Milk Hotel) got married!
Here's their report / confirmation:
Congratulations to Jeff Mangum and Astra Taylor, who were recently married. Mangum, as everybody knows, founded Neutral Milk Hotel, whose album In the Aeroplane Over the Sea is widely regarded as one of the best albums of the 1990s. Taylor is a writer and filmmaker who directed the documentary, Zizek! for which Neutral Milk Hotel drummer Jeremy Barnes provided the original music. Glorious Noise received confirmation of the nuptials from Ms. Talyor via email. "It's a fact," she said.
Is there any better reason to post a Neutral Milk Hotel / Jeff Mangum video to celebrate? I think not.
And for the purist who loves seeing him full band stylee (the drummer and trombone players are fun to watch) and doesn't mind the slightly wacky sound in the beginning (it gets better after the first few seconds):
