This episode's guest, Timo Ellis, is an all around musical powerhouse. He plays drums, guitar, bass, keyboards, and sings, and currently fronts the synth-metal band Netherlands. His musical bio spans an impressive and varied list of projects including Yoko Ono, Cibo Matto, Sean Lennon, Joan as Policewoman, and many more.
We talked about the "sinister, earth-killing, imperialist, genocidal juggernaut" that is our current political system, made plans for a two-person revolution, and scrapped those plans because we're all addicted to the internet.
