LOUD! FAST! PHILLY! Episode 4: Glenn Wallis of Ruin















Joseph A. Gervasi interviews the very intelligent and thoughtful Glenn Wallis of one of Philadelphia’s finest HC punk bands: the mighy Ruin. They talk growing up attending alternative schools, the use of psychedelics, meditation, Buddhism, the early punk scene, the coming of hardcore, Ruin and its impact on the scene both in and outside Philly, and a great deal more. This is a fantastic talk.
