A part-time cabal. A fusion of assemblage art, hurly-burly, bedlam, disquiet and poetry. A band. A collaboration. A constellation. A work of real fiction.
New Podcast Episode: The Grays. Climate Crisis. Genocide. War. The Rise of Nationalism. Björ6n Oranj has been pondering the state of the world as the result of listening to too many podcasts. It has left him cynical. But, recently, there has been some hope. Resistance. Leadership. The Grays have become a world-wide phenomenon. They are fighting back against apathy. They have become an inspiration to millions. Maybe 2020 is the year everything changes. Featured music includes all sorts of guitar noodling by Machete Petals and We’ll Always Be Together by The Halcyon Brothers. You can find it everywhere including Stitcher, iTunes, Apple Podcasts, Anchor, Breaker, Overcast, TuneIn, Google Podcasts, iHeartRadio, RadioPublic , Spotify , YouTube and, right here, under the podcast tab.
