The SubGenius Hour of Slack Podcast
The Church of the SubGenius Weekly Radio Ministry
Hour of Slack #1185 - Sneaking Into Stang's Office with Puzzling Evidence A little of everything! Sermon clips from Starwood Festival and Baltimore Devival 2008, interview clips from Right Where You Are Sitting Now, a ton of primo Puzzling Evidence Show, collages by LeMur, Pref, and McGee; antique music of the deep past; and much skulking and sneaking around in Stang's office by mischievous Philo Drummond, Dr. Hal, and Puzzling Evidence. (Posted 2 weeks early - last show until 2009.)

Hour of Slack #1184 - It's the End of the World Right Where You Are Sitting Now This episode covers all the main basic themes of the Church: "Bob," Slack, The Conspiracy, and World Blowout. Lots of Norel Pref collage helps ventilate dense sermon clips from Starwood Festival and radio banter from Puzzling Evidence with Philo Drummond and Dr. Hal. We start scavenging some interview material from an excellent British podcast, Right Where You Are Sitting Now, and we welcome work by new collagist Rev. Sweetness McGee. NOTE: We are posting this episode and #1185 early, because we'll be vacationing during the holidays and don't want to mess with big uploads then. This will carry us through to the end of December in weekly shows.

Hour of Slack #1183 -- Ultimate Xistlessnessmas Mix Rerun This is the annual traditional Xmas Re-Rerun of #867 (& 921 and 1026 & 1077), which was itself a condensation of the previous 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.

Hour of Slack #1182 - The Lonely Sperm at Christmas - Live Dec.7 '08 Mostly live from WCSB Cleveland, with Lonesome Cowboy Dave joining Rev. Stang and Princess Wei by phone. Not recommended for the infirm, the very old or the very young. An amazing new sarcastic Christmas song by The Attery Squash is premiered, along with several other bites out of the fresh Xmas apple by LeMur, SODDI, Rev. Norel Pref, Puzzling Evidence, and Synaesthesia. The Obituaries become a regular feature on the show, as everyone ages inexorably.

Hour of Slack #1181 - Evil Teddy Bears Vs. Obama This one's heavy on the Puzzling Evidence-Dr.Hal-Philo show excerpts, and they're exemplary excerpts. Papa Joe Mama's classic "Last Chance" rant proves that he knew the results of the 2008 election back in 1996. We also hear the openings of the Stangian sermons from the most recent Starwood Festival and Baltimore devivals. Most of the music comes from Girl Talk, making this an unusually illegal episode! There are even some last dangling remnants from the XI-X-Day stage and radio recordings, from Brushwood as well as WCSB's Radio Synaesthesia.

Hour of Slack #1180 - "STARK MOCKIT -- A Depression Comedy" by Rev. Susie the Floozy This is one of the greatest Hours of Slack ever, and it's not even an Hour of Slack. It's Rev. Susie the Floozy's incredible Episode # 740 of "Bob's" Slacktime Funhouse from WREK in Atlanta, Georgia, and it's truly one of the most amazing media barrage-style collages we have ever had the orgozmonic psychotronic pleasure to hear. Praise Rev. Susie the Floozy, and the 101 sources from whence she drew. It makes losing everything worth it.

Hour of Slack #1179 - Space Madness Drug War In the Hour of Slack studio, as we acquire new music and clips, we categorize them into various folders according to general subject matter: "Bob," sex, war, etc. This month, the folder of sound files concerned with drugs filled up. This episode, then, is composed of material that either deals with the dangers of drug abuse (especially in outer space), or else makes you feel like you are on drugs and wish you could come down. LeMur, Dr. Hal, the Joker, Radio Synaesthesia, Priestess Pisces, The Psycho Skeletons, Girl Talk, and especially the band Ogo Dys help out.

Hour of Slack #1178 - SubGenius All-Purpose Pledge Drive for Any Station It's a pledge drive show! -- a real one, originally done for WCSB in Cleveland, but we have jiggled and edited the specific phone numbers, pledge premiums and station I.D.s so that ANY station could use this for fund-raising purposes. Aside from a little LeMurian collage, some Girl Talk and "Faith healer" by ESO, it's nonstop all-out full-tilt gut-blowout frenzy on the parts of Lonesome Cowboy Dave and Rev. Stang as they dredge up every possible begging and wheedling ploy in the book, including dozens that no RESPECTABLE religious broadcast would ever consider.

Since most of our listeners will hear this after the election, we had to pretend that the election had already happened.

Hour of Slack #1175 -- Sex Lives of Gorillas and Demons / Music of Bob W. This episode is mostly music, especially the great songs of Bob Walkenhorst, and also new songs by Rev. Robin Renee and Rev. Max Slack. Sex and love among the gorillas and demons is the "theme;" Dr. Hal and Rev. Stang read the confessions of the audience at 11X-Day.

Hour of Slack #1174 -- The Eco-Econocataclysm The week we were producing this show, the stock market plunged about 10,000 points. We danced in the streets and spent money like it was going out of style. (Evidently it is.) Includes a brand new Bleepo mix, news songs by The Psycho Skeletons and Rev. Max Slack, and a recording of Senator John McTaint's appearance on the Ask Dr. Hal show in Berkeley, with his wife Sindy. Also, much Radio Synaesthesia and 11X-Day live show clips with Lonesome Cowboy Dave, Dr. Hal, Rev. Susie the Floozy, Priestess Pisces, Rev. Stang. AND all the great Lemur and Preffish collages.

Hour of Slack #1173 - DEVOtional 2008 - DEVO & "Bob" Music and rants recorded at DEVOtional 2007 and 2008, and Mongoloidapalooza '07, are interspersed with truly amazing covers of classic DEVO songs taken from the annual compilation, "Not Necessarily Beautiful but Mutated." The close relationship of DEVO and The Church of the SubGenius becomes all too hideously clear. Also includes original songs by The Attery Squash and The Mutant Mountain Boys.

New music by Rev. Max Slack as well as Bob Walkenhorst, a ton of old Einstein's Secret Orchestra, a Phineas Narco mash-up starring Hitler, and the soaring arfulness of Fernandinande LeMur's sound-chopper add their own special taints.

Hour of Slack #1161 - Rev. Susie the Floozy's Ultimate X-Day Special Rev. Susie the Floozy is responsible for this extremely complex production, which was first broadcast on her show "Bob's" Slacktime Funhouse from WREK-Atlanta on 6-28-08. This is certainly the most intense X-Day-inspired editing yet produced by any SubGenius, and it seems somehow appropriate that it was incubated only a few days before the end of the world.

Music by The Large, Negativland, and Cuttlefish, and calls from Priestess Pisces and Rocknar, enliven old zombies LC Dave, Puzzling Evidence, Dr. Hal, Phineas Narco, Dr. Sinister and the late Prof. Chas. Collagery by Norel and LeMur space out the proceedings.

It is presaged by a tossed cross-section of classic Puzzling Evidence and new Radio Synaesthesia, and sprinkled on top with LeMur and Norel Pref collages.

Hour of Slack #1154 - SubHistory -- "It's All Done With Computers, Even the Puppet Strings" During the many SubGenius radio shows on various stations recently, we reminisced about old times and the most horrifying moments of the real-life SubGenius adventure. We saved those bits for this show, which ties in with Stang's SubGenius History / Cult Management online course at Maybe Logic Academy (maybelogic.net). Ironically, brand new mindfuckery ends the show.

Just John background music is abused, Stang reads Unclaimed Mysteries, Wei reads part of a new Onan Canobite pamphlet, Superior Mutants. The majority of this particular episode is completely insane -- and yet it won new converts while it was first being aired. Go figure.

Hour of Slack #1134 - Amsterdam SubGenius Devival 2007 Pt 1 We're standing under the Overtoom, in a subterranean pirate radio basement station in Amsterdam, Holland. Dr. Hal is here, and Princess Wei, Pope Black, and Governor Rocknar, and a number of humans or SubGeniuses wearing Dobbsheads masks, making the whole scene look like some kind of warped, twisted Fellini movie. Yes, it's like living in a foreign film. Everything is there except the subtitles; and oh, how I miss the subtitles, which might explain to me what the hell is really going on here. But, of that I remain ignorant, as perhaps you too the listener. All we can do is have faith, yes faith in that FACE of JR Bob Dobbs. That endless, bedotted, half-tone -- oh, sometimes high contrast -- FACE. If we can but seize upon that as the FOCUS of our attention, our LOVE and our thoughts, perhaps we can be safely guided back to a place of COOL music, and cool speech, talking and so forth.
