In episode #157 of The XS Noize Podcast, Mark Millar meets Galen & Paul, a new project from Galen Ayers, the singer-songwriter whose artistic projects include the rightly acclaimed solo album 'Monument', and Paul Simonon, bassist with The Clash, Gorillaz and The Good, The Bad and The Queen.

After the bilingual charms, international genre-spanning adventures, and picture postcard images of pan-European culture of their debut album Can We Do Tomorrow Another Day? Galen & Paul have released the new EP Uno Más. In this interview, Galen & Paul discuss their meeting, debut album, new EP, and more.
