NOTE: We are releasing TWO shows this week, because the world ends next week.
This show is a real cross-section of SubGenius audio history from 1980 to the present, almost all of it concerned with the upcoming WORLDWIDE X-Day event (not the campout). Toward the end we describe how deceased Mormons such as Joseph Smith and Brigham Young have been turned into due-paying SubGeniuses, postmortem, by Rev. Just John. Mostly, it's "media barrage-style" cuts, hundreds of them, from things like Dr. Legume and Rev. Stang preaching at devivals, to unidentifiable but somehow classic monster movie soundbites. Most impressive of all are some clips from the Futuramas of LAST WEEK (S07-E01,02) with uncanny correspondences to both X-Day and the Canobitian research concerning the secret 1953 switch of "Earth" and "Mars." Stang preaches from that chapter of THE BOBLIOGRAPHON. Two songs each by THE AMINO ACIDS and HANK FLOYD are played through, but there are bits of many songs we can't identify now because they came from collages created by the late Prof. Chas Smith for his ESO Swamp Radio show. Near the end, Rev. Stang provides a few survival tips for those Left Behind in the coming Rupture. In other words, this show covers a LOT of temporal ground. Recorded June 24, "2012" at WCSB Cleveland.
