The SubGenius Hour of Slack Podcast
The Church of the SubGenius Weekly Radio Ministry

Last live show at WCSB until next summer; we're MOVING! This episode attacks the ins and outs of packing and prepping massive SubGenius media archives for transportation across 1000 miles of Pink territory in a disguised "moving van." We also discuss the documentary movie in progress, SLACKING TOWARDS BETHLEHEM, and urge all listeners to check out the Kickstarter page and trailer. Also: The Rainmakers cover Devo, The Swinging Love Corpses, and more of them kind pils.

It's all about dogs. There's some great Swinging Love Corpses, The Rainmakers, and The Psycho Skeletons in this, and a sermon by Rev. deFalk, but mostly it's a tribute to our late, great SubGenius hound dog, Dammett, who boarded the Saucers at age 12 on Sept. 29, or St. Dammett / Bite the Mailman Day. (Thanks to Rev. Guimo for that idea.) We also ALMOST reveal MASSIVE Church secrets, and discuss the SubGenius Yard Sale which had ended just before this show started, but the best parts are about having and losing a great dog pal... our little boy, old as he was. The highlight is a recording of Dammett howl-dueling with a pack of coyotes in the dead of night.

OH, and the BIG MYSTERY SECRET we were hinting at can now be told: bit.ly/SlackOn

This show is from two weeks ago. We didn’t do a live show this week because, well, our old hound dog and co-host Dammett suddenly decided to board the saucers early and we had to say goodbye to him. He is with Pappy now and we are looking for a Treeing Walker Coonhound puppy.

Welcome to the Swingin' Shed! If we can't whup it, we'll go down - but we'll go down swinging. Stang springs The Good Rev. Roger's excruciating END TIMES FINAL EXAM on the gang, which includes Dr. Sinister this time! There's also a horrible goat pun tribute to Dr. Dark, and a goodly stretch of Thorazine Urine Podcrust from last X-Day Drill, with Dr. Argus Faux, Rev. Danny Shoggoth, and Rev. Peas. Music is by Drs. for Wotan, Dr. Bizarro and the Disgustos (two killer anthems!), The Rainmakers, and The Psycho Skeletons.

Dr. Sinister's Synesthesiamobile got rear-ended and he couldn't make it to the WCSB station, so we filled in for him with an EXTRA Hour of Slack! Played some old but rebooted Dr. Bizarro and the Disgustos (recently remixed on CD), some Amino Acids from 20X-Day, some Faux-band, and a rare recording of Lenny Bruce doing a live show at a club, spiced up by a heckler. The middle of the show has Lonesome Cowboy Dave and studio hosts StangDoe expounding about, among other things, the pros and cons of expounderment, and the hazards of chicken bone shards vis-a-vis dog throats. Stang reads the orgy scene from Neighborworld.

Music includes two Rainmakers, two Dr. Faux and the Right Angles, one DK Jones, and one Xposed 4Heads. The rest of this episode is live SubGenius gossip and delivered knowledge from the called ministers of J. R. "Bob" Dobbs, those being Rev. Ivan Stang, Princess Wei 'R.' Doe, and Lonesome Cowboy Dave, broadcast from WCSB Cleveland on Sunday night, Sept. 3, "2017." Dave was especially off the hook, mental mash-up-wise. Everything was covered thoroughly. No summation possible.

Live 2017-08-27

Music includes very old (The Monkees, Glassmadness, Dr. G. Gordon Gordon and Drs. for Extreme Prejudice) and very new (Dr. Faux and the Right Angles, Xposed 4Heads, and two songs from a 2014 album by The Rainmakers that was new to us but uncannily timely. Then it gets talky, with a discussion about the Western Jackelope from Stang Ranch followed by some Thorazine Urine Podcrust from 20X-Day (Peas, Faux, Shoggoth in this case), and finally the Lonesome Cowboy calls the station.

Dave's centrifuge of spittle versus The Elite. Who ARE the Elite? Fox News being the most mainstream and elite. Dave's slippery, soapy problems with connective tissue of the topic of discussion. The Air Force can induce a near-death OOB experience just by putting pilots in a centrifuge! Neighborworld is about to be on sale! The Salton Sea and the SubGenius in Mexicali or Calexico. Dave's cousin Fornicato. Dave's novel Neighborworld about to be published; excerpt. A mouse gnaws on Dave's phone line. Stang's job and the SubGenius documentary. Hurricane Harvey versus Obama's flood regulations (removed by Trump 2 weeks prior). Crazy greed-mongerers like "Bob." Wei's new word: EXTEMPORADIO. Podcrust of 20X-Day. The Texas studio, where gravity is higher.

This episode features both the Ask Dr. Hal Show from the 20X-Day Drill and a lot of music both old and new -- and a Rainmakers album, "Monster Movie," which was done some years ago but is new to us. The show opens with a great Rainmakers song about conspiracy kooks, "Who's At the Wheel," followed by "The Dallas Cowboys, Jesus and Me" (classic Rudy Schwartz Project). Dr. Argus Faux and The Right Angles perform his song about the Church, "SubGenius," and after some Ask Dr. Hal we hear another "new" Rainmakers song, "Monster Movie." Xposed 4Heads follow more Dr. Hal asking with "Push Me." After the last Hal answers we hear live instrumentals - The Right Angles from a Florida show and a medley by The Amino Acids recorded at 20X-Day. The show closes with yet another original new SubGenius song, "No Slack, No Hope" by Rev. Loveland of Artificial Telepathy. Also included is a recording of Rev. Stang's last minute warning about the Eclipse and possible dangers from a test of The Beacon, from a live broadcast the day before.

One of our best friends died last Friday and this episode is about him. The sick humorist, master heckler and Great Badfilm archivist has taken his puns to “Bob” and “shot through,” as the late Pappy Stang put it. It was not exactly unexpected, and Dr. Dark was extremely well prepared, but we got the news just a few hours before this broadcast and were just starting to get shaken up. Such things take a while to sink in. We tried to pick some music he would like so there is some classic Rudy Schwartz Project in this show as well as an inspiring opening song by Xposed 4Heads. The background music is from classic Universal monster movies. Stang also reads an excellent rant by The Good Reverend Roger about staying weird, often an uphill battle. There is some philosophizing about death and the meaning of life, talk of an afterlife, etc., but mainly it’s three old folks remembering and celebrating an old friend. He was quite a character, to put it mildly. He is the only SubGenius besides Rev. Stang who was at every single X-Day Drill from 1996 to 2016, and was with Rev. Stang every single July 5 7 a.m. He is sorely missed although we are hoping for some Heckling from Beyond. If anybody could pull that off it would be Dr. Dark.
