Neutral Uke

Singer & guitarist/ukuleleist Shawn Fogel of the band Golden Bloom is Neutral Uke Hotel, a ukulele-based project that covers Neutral Milk Hotel's In The Aeroplane Over the Sea in its entirety. He has a short tour lined up for the end of June with stops in NYC, NXNE in Toronto, upstate NY and a few other North East cities. He plays Mercury Lounge with The Handsome Family on Tuesday, June 15th where he writes, "We've got at least one special guest joining us for a song." Tickets are still on sale.

Fogel previously participated in "Beatles Complete on Ukulele" project, which performed at SXSW earlier this year.

Jeff Mangum played some of his Neutral Milk Hotel songs earlier this year at a benefit for Chris Knox.

Why do I get the feeling this is the same guy posting over and over? I saw the show in Boston and it was an UNBELIEVABLE experience. No haters in that room that night. Oh "indie" rockers you tire me so. Whatevs.

"Why do I get the feeling this is the same guy posting over and over?"

Because you're paranoid

Let me echo some of the earlier posts, and say that I, too, hate gimmicks like this. I can just see him explaining it to his grandmother at Thanksgiving. Lame!

wtf is this

Posted by Anonymous | June 14, 2010 1:41 PM

it's stuff like this that makes me wish mangum had put out that disappointing follow-up.

what the fuck fogel?

Honestly I'd rather suffer through a Dread Zeppelin show than listen to this dickhead.

Posted by Oh My | June 14, 2010 2:23 PM

Shawn Fogel is a great guy and great musician.

Roger Greenawalt (who is behind the Beatles Complete on Uke) is clearly behind this - what a massive asshole.

Shawn - stop listening to Roger. He's wrong.

i mean, i'd understand this if the guy at least took the songs and kinda remade them with the uke, but he's just straight up playing the songs. fucking lame

why is no one pointing out that this has actually been done before, and better?

Some time before, I needed to buy a house for my firm but I didn't earn enough cash and could not buy anything. Thank God my father suggested to try to take the loans from trustworthy bank. So, I acted so and was happy with my consolidation loan.
