I speak with an original Christian weirdo, Glen Galloway, aka Glen Galaxy, about God. Glen's best-known work includes the 90s spazz-rocker of Trumans Waters, which collaborated with Thurston Moore and Cat Power, and my personal favorite, Soul-Junk, a noisy-berserk-hop-experimental-whatever project combined with Scriptures. 

  • [Intro: "Israel & The Limping Hip" — Soul-Junk]

  • [00:00:00] Catching up, musical influences, musical career, like-minded artists started finding each other (Psalters, Danielson)

  • [00:28:00] Turning point after becoming unglued by mainstream worship music (John Mark McMillan, Jesus Culture)

  • [00:35:00] Power in repetitive music (eg, Jonathan Helser, Hong Kong protestors, Gavin Bryars, Upperroom)

  • ["Sing Hallelujah to the Lord" — Hong Kong protestors]

  • [01:18:00] A concerning dream

  • [01:25:00] We die

  • ["5 Star Crest (4 Vattenrum)" — Bladee]

  • [Outro: "Secret" — Parallel Stereo]


As always, this is a casual conversation in which we'll most likely misstate something. Whenever anyone talks about GOD, always be like the Bareans and DYOR.
