In the mood to ruin one of your favorite albums? “In The Aeroskank Over The Checkered Pattern” is an intentionally shitty all-ska cover version of Neutral Milk Hotel’s 1998 album “In the Aeroplane Over the Sea”. And it is truly shitty, but for me was worth the listen for the amusement alone. It was also interesting hearing this formidable album transformed into a tongue-in-cheek ska genre. This is “good” in a different way than Hamburger Helper’s “Food On The Streets” album is “good”. That is to say, it’s “shitty good”.
It is not the ska-based cover of In the Aeroplane Over the Sea we asked for, it’s the ska-based cover of In the Aeroplane Over the Sea we deserve. See also: Blooptral Milk Hotel.
