In the new song "Extinction Revolution" the choir, led by Musical Director Nehemiah Luckett, rejoices that the climate-changed killed Golden Toad returns from the dead to haunt Jamie Dimon's dreams and regulate Wall Street.
Since the church was last seen in the Bay Area, the troupe has concentrated on performances inside big banks. Exorcisms have been staged inside JPMorgan Chase, UBS, HSBC, Bank of America, and Deutsche Bank.
A year and a half ago, Reverend Billy Talen marched from Zuccotti Park with Cornel West and Christopher Hedges to the headquarters of Goldman Sachs, a key financier of industrial projects which emit greenhouse gasses. Detention for Hedges and Talen in "The Tombs" correctional facility was an occasion for much-needed reflection and meditation.
Reverend Billy's "The End of the World" is published from ORBooks. "The Earthalujah Songs" - songs composed (and often sung) by Laura Newman of the choir - is available at Revbilly.com The Church of Stop Shopping is directed by Savitri D.
