Ron Gallo Gets Spiritual On "Love Supreme (Work Together!)"
Stardust Birthday Party is the follow up to Ron Gallo’s debut album, Heavy Meta, a “garage rock album whose emphasis on lurid fun doesn’t sacrifice depth,” said The Guardian, giving it four stars. Mojo called it a “Shrieky-voiced, Jad fair-esque solo set of mid-70s Bowery oddball punk.” Stardust Birthday Party is available for pre-order today.
I wrote this song on GarageBand on my phone on an airplane. I was listening to “A Love Supreme” by John Coltrane, eating my really adorable but terrible tasting airplane meal of bowtie pasta (originally the first verse was about that) and looking down at the earth from the sky where you see no separation between people or things, there is just one thing. The chorus goes “god loves it when we work together”. The god I am talking about is not a specific one, but everything, the one thing that is everything, the common thread in all existence, life, whatever you want to call it. In my head this is the soundtrack to a party in the streets where there is no line between shape, color, size, gender, sexuality, beliefs, anything, none of that shit exists. Just anyone and everyone dancing kissing hugging laughing at the absurdity that we couldn’t always see that our core we are all the same.
