The roots of Soul-Junk began in 1993 when Glen Galloway began experimenting while touring as with his rock band Trumans Water. In 1994, he left Trumans to produce Soul-Junk as an independent solo project, eventually taking the moniker Glen Galaxy.
Early Soul-Junk albums (such as 1950) almost exclusively feature low-fi, Indie rock style tracks of Glen singing bible verses interlaced with instrumental noise tracks. As Soul-Junk gained members its sound advanced toward rock and pop. 1953 and 1954 show signs of this continual change.
1955 shows a transition in Soul-Junk’s sound. The double-disk set consists of pop / Indie rock / hip hop influenced sounds. It is also the last disk to make extensive use of biblical quotes – though Soul-Junk’s lyrics still clearly reflect their Christian worldview.
Later albums are based in experimental, abstract hip-hop.
