Packing for the move into our new house I found this amazing treasure from the Athens Summer Music Extravaganza. I’m guessing it was the summer of 1997. I was living in Atlanta at the time and Athens, GA was a godsend.
It’s basically an explosion of Elephant 6… Olivia Tremor Control, Neutral Milk Hotel, (early) of Montreal!
Of course my pop faves Bunnygrunt, Dressy Bessy and Tullycraft played.
This is how I spent the 90s. I missed grunge and flannel shirts and carried 45s in a box at shows like this.
Jeff Mangum of Neutral Milk Hotel (and the Elephant six) recording Orange Twin Field Works Vol. 1, one of my favorite things to listen to ever. It sounds like you’re actually inside of a festival of sounds, tastes, colors, and people. It’s a lovely experience.
