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

At first it's a fairly "normal" show (by Hour of Slack standards anyway). Then, seemingly out of desperation, Stang starts reading ONAN CANOBITE'S DECEMBER 2014 SERMON. For 20 minutes, the show alternates between Stang reading chunks of the great ONAN SERMON and Dave doing his patented surrealist extemporaneizing -- altogether, an excellent combo of clever writing and pure Spouting. At the climax, the worst "Bob" song in the world is played! We apologize for NOTHING!

"Things haven't really gotten any worse -- just YOU!" That was one of the cheery things that was said during the live part. For the first 22 minutes, however, it's a 35-track collage of everything from mean one-liners denouncing Stang to mind-blowing fake commercials by Rev. Bleepo Abernathy. (As always, see the track list at subgenius.com's Radio section for the endless details.) Lots of bits by LeMur, The Large, Norel pref (from the olden days) and there's even a song by Stang & Wei's grandsons! It would all be charming were it not so sick. Come to think of it, the live part delves into some pretty darned sick subjects indeed. This is one of those shows where you hear Wei say "Gross!" a lot.

Rev. Ivan Stang and Princess Wei 'R.' Doe went searching for America, and found the Salton Sea. After some great musicollage with Lemur, Timothy Leary, Rev. Bleepo Abernathy, Glassmadness, GWAR, Nenslo, ZZ Top, and The Rudy Schwartz Project, Stang and Doe describe their travel adventures to Lonesome Cowboy Dave, who responds Davishly. Subjects include a Yes Chimp for Stang, V. Swarup's audio book "Q & A", Chameleonalia, the Bone Yard in Tucson, Dave's cough, Wei's mom in Carlsbad Caverns, The Thing?, and a sick clip from John Waters reading his audiobook "Carsick." StangDoe describe The Salton Sea area in grisly detail and play a very strange location recording of animal life in remote Stang County, Texas. American Sniper and The Interview are mocked and Dr. Sinister plays a redneck. The Rudy Schwartz Project performs the Swinging Love Corpses hit song, "Pick a Booger." The strange "STANG PUKES YOU" grafitti in Japan is described. Dave rants about the end of the world and Stang rants about mispronunciations of Wei's name. Dr. Sinister analyzes Dave's protest songs, then the classic anti-religious-nut-country protest song "Kill for God" by The Rudy Schwartz Project is played.

SubG-Negativland-Puzzling Evidence Thanksgiving Executive Banquet II

Nov. 25, 2005

This rerun show (originally #1024)  is interstrewn with our ever-present killer klips by Mister Fernandinande LeMur and Rev. Norel Pref, but most of it (labeled below as "SubNegPuz") is edited from the 5 hour Thanksgiving Business Banquet we enjoyed at the KPFA studios in Berkeley (kpfa.org), thanks to Don Joyce's Over the Edge and Doug Wellman's Puzzling Evidence. They are co-hosting and co-mixing. So to speak. Guests in this segment include Pope Michael Peppe, Dr. Philo Drummond, Princess Wei, Rev. Ivan Stang, many callers.

Special episode, live at the WCSB studio in Cleveland with the great satirist, publisher and enemy of the Conspiracy Paul Krassner yakking with regular hosts Rev. Ivan Stang, Lonesome Cowboy Dave and Princess Wei "R." Doe. It's a long, rambling funny discussion of "What REALLY Happened to The Left?" -- plus the unusual chain-gang of idiots. We have a song, "Bob" Pokes Me In The Eye, by someone who sounds like Martin Sheen, the song "On and Off the Road with "Bob" by Rev. Bleepo Abernathy, and a rant by, well, let's just call him Joe. LeMur contributes many collages as does Rev. Norel Pref.

To celebrate our fifteenth-hundredth week on the air, we pulled a rerun at random. This one is an unusually light-hearted and light-headed live show from October, 2005. Your host Rev. Stang was very tired and utters countless accidental malapropisms. Luckily there is much Killer Kollage from both LeMur and Rev. Norel Pref. Princess Wei "R." Doe and Lonesome Cowboy Dave kept Stang from just reading alt.slack out-takes or falling asleep. Stephen McQuillen's Katrina collage is ASTOUNDING. (Thanks to Phineas Narco for posting that to a.b.s.) Also: the great song "Dread Dobbs" by Lost Souls, Inc. NEXT WEEK: Paul Krassner live in the WCSB Hour of Slack studio!

This is a rerun of #679, mixed on tape on April 16, 1999, right after Stang's first marriage broke up and the Hour of Slack mixing studio was moved into a shabby Dallas bachelor apartment. (It was RE-reran as #1014 in 2005.) It's pretty good! Contents of this fast-paced episode include: Ancient Puzzling Evidence, media barrages, Onan Canobite music, SubG preaching by Pope Meyer and David Lynch, Byron Werner "Doktor" collages, Mark Mothersbaugh SubMusic, Dokstok III music, Stang's rants at Winterstar 99, rare ARISE! narration out-takes by Stang instead of Dr. Hal; some great ranting and jams by Stang with Einstein's Secret Orchestra from a rehearsal tape; a song by an Italian SubGenius band; Sister Krys ranting on WFMU; The Band That Dare Not Speak Its Name; ESO collages by Chas Smith; Rev. Susie the Floozie collages; King of Slack Bill T. Miller music; ESO radio with LC Dave and Stang; and a Rev. Friday Jones rant.

We're on our annual Krampusmas SubGenius Winter Trip, so until we return it's reruns all the way down. In fact it's five consecutive shows from October-November 2005. This particular disgusting rerun is tainted by stretches of Dr. Philo Drummond and Pope Sternodox in a frank discussion about Face Fucking Bats from an even more ancient Hour of Slack. It's also especially Norelian and Preffish. Thanks to Rev. Jacques Petee for the movie clips.

What are the holidays without reruns? This is the hoary old annual traditional Xmas Re-Rerun of #867 (and 921 and 1026, 1077, 1129, 1236, 1338, etc.), which was itself a condensation of some ancient year's 3-show "Best of Xmas Sickness" compilation, which were themselves the concentrated best-of from 15 years' worth of previous Xmas SubGenius and other Xmas weirdo collections. Includes over 66 separate tracks/songs/bits! And no, not one bit has been changed in all these years. We are ON XISTLESSNESSMESS VACATION from Hour of Slack!
