Part 2 of The Gribshnobler's conversation with the late member of experimental music duo Bull of Heaven.  In this episode we geek out about music and movies, and discuss his phone conversation with Mark Hosler of Negativland, how to start a riot, the likelihood of an apocalypse, his brief appearance in the independent film Plastic Utopia, and his distant relation to Mike Nesmith of the Monkees. I also share two of Bull of Heaven's lengthy rock pieces (with psychedelic, progressive, and noise elements).

You can listen to most of Bull of Heaven's music at and download nearly all of it at and follow them on Facebook here:
