Hour of Slack #1485 - 17X-Day "B.O.3"

The first half is another collection of 17X-Day best-of live recordings: rants from Rev. Baby Bear, Stang reading Good Rev. Roger, and Rev. Manx Darqpaw; songs by The Mutant Mountain Boys, Phat ManDee, Multiple Fisted Tails of Connie, and Andrew the Impaled (including a cover of a Tom Lehrer song!). That part of the show is really good. Then it's crazy talk live from WCSB with Lonesome Cowboy Dave attending by phone. And by crazy talk, what we really mean is REALLY crazy talk. Praise "Bob."

Hour of Slack #1484 - Inner Secrets of the Church

This one's solid Spouting from the July 3, "2014" recordings from Wisteria during 17X-Day Drill. And we probably said too much. It's Dr. Hal, Rev. Stang, and Princess Wei, with testimonies from "Suds" Pshaw, Rev. Skull and Pater & Petal Nostril. The corpse of the mysteriously-killed dog "Snuckles" is displayed (albeit not by radio) and the mystery deepens when Pater and Petal deliver their account of an attack on their car while they were in it. Who is the unseen culprit? Some sort of monster? Ol' Sequaw? Dr. Legume or Philo Drummond? Between the speculation on the bizarre Wisteria marauder, many Church secrets -- FORMER secrets, rather -- were accidentally revealed, especially about the real freaks of the Church. One example: "Bob" renews himself by shedding and then eating his own skin. Also: Ren and Stimpy. There're some pretty good Dobbs Sales rants in there too. Lovecraft fans may be especially interested.

Hour of Slack #1483 - A Plain Old Regular Show

Well, we really did it this time -- we did another show. A relatively "normal" show by recent standards, mixing music, collage, PR Gnus, live-on-the-air spouting with the cowboy -- you know, a regular plain old Hour of Slack. (We'll be back to rough-hewn X-Day recordings next week!) There are a few last location reports from Leipzig, Germany by StangDoe, a new Psycho Skeletons tune, and a whole lot of Reagan's Polyp, which, if you don't know, maybe you'd better pick up on it. Also, DEVO COVER TUNES -- just a smattering so far from the latest compilation of such things, the "Not Necessarily Beautiful But Mutated" CD, Volume 10! (Including "Blockhead" done by Rural War Room!) Incidentally, the German-language clips at the beginning are from the first big Captain America movie, but dubbed in German. The Nazi ranting is by The Red Skull. Don't blame us!

Hour of Slack #1482 - On the Loose in Leipzig

We went to Germany! We had a great time! We stayed with Rev. Tatjana and Rev. Buckky in the best-located SubGenius apartment ever! We met The Large! He is large in height, voice and nerve! We saw the town! It has naked ladies and scary babies everywhere! We were horrified by hundreds of tortured Jesus pictures at the art museum! We invented a new language that nobody can understand! After the location recordings of the first half, we got Lonesome Cowboy Dave on the line and he told us about everything we DIDN'T see. And we read Rev. Peas' godawful advice re: how to behave in Germany.
