    God Lives Underwater was an industrial rock band from rural Perkiomenville, Pennsylvania (near Philadelphia) formed in 1993 byband members David Reilly and Jeff Turzo. God Lives Underwater were originally signed to American Recordings after beingdiscovered by Rick Rubin, who subsequently produced the band’s first two albums.

    Supposedly, the name “God Lives Underwater” was derived from Jeff Turzo’s previous band GLU, from which David Reilly usedthe initials as a backronym to form the band’s name. Influences of the band’s sound include Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails,David Bowie, Psychedelic Furs, Econoline Crush, and Spiritualized. Reilly disparaged uses of “electronica” in reference to theband in 1998, suggesting that “techno” would be more appropriate, but ultimately saying that he would prefer the label “popband”.

    In 1998, the band scored a hit with their second studio album Life in the So-Called Space Age on 1500/A&M, which chartedat #137, and soon began nation-wide touring, supporting major label acts and playing numerous music festivals.

    However, contractual entanglements and a label bankruptcy postponed the release of their follow-up album Up Off The Floor,and the numerous side-projects created by the GLU band members never saw release. Up Off The Floor was finally released in2004 on an independent label, but by that time, the core members of God Lives Underwater had split up and moved on toother projects. Jeff Turzo started Wired All Wrong with Matt Mahaffey (and live support from former GLU bandmates AndrewMcGee and Scott Garrett), while David Reilly pursued a solo career. « hide
