Hour of Slack #1561 - 1982 - Women Take Over Church

Did you know that in the early 1980s, The Church of the SubGenius was taken over by women? It was not a peaceful usurpation of power, but involved blackmail, bloodshed, and "Bob." This is a heavily edited report on the Second World SubCon, held Sept 9 1982 weekend in Chicago at the Radisson Hotel. Puxzzling Evidence provided live radio commentary over Stang's live recordings. Everything was recorded on cassettes. The founding Doktors were young and savage then and their wives were even worse. The early Doktors on the ancient crumbling tape include Dr. Philo Drummond, Rev. Ivan Stang, Puzzling Evidence, Dr. G. Gordon Gordon, Rev. Bleepo Abernathy, Bob Nelson, Glassmadness, Pope Sternodox, Snavely Eklund, Janor Hypercleats, Doktors 4 Wotan, Drs. 4 "Bob," Pope Michael Flores, and ALL OUR WIVES at that time (someone else, Autumn G. Gordon, Dottie Keckhaver, Pam Smith, Faye Hansen). Former Rev. Buck Naked is also heard. These were the days when The Bleeding Head of Arnold Palmer Launchers Society held sway over much of the Church -- little did we realize it could all be subverted by a feminist conspiracy within the Hierarchy itself! For as you shall hear, at one point The Bleeding Head Itself was endangered!

Hour of Slack #1560 - Infectious Radio

The song "Overtime"" by The Fantastic Plastics opens the show. The rest is a collection of clips from Dr. Sinister's Radio Synaesthesia on WCSB Cleveland, recorded during January and February. Caller Stang (sounding croaky with a cold, calling from Stang Ranch in Texas) introduces his political theories regarding the Loudly Complaining Party versus the "prattling Prabobs of positivity" and answers questions about Ted Cruz. Lonesome Cowboy Dave explains Demonic Pneumonics. A number of suggestions are advanced as to which Hollywood star should play Dr. Sinister. The new movement of Stupid Pride is discussed but then The Management calls in and informs Dr. Sinister that there will be big changes in his show. In other segments, Stang declares War on Warren and everything else. Glue sniffing and cliff-jumping as teenage rebellion fads are discussed, as are the sad vain attempts by so many SubGenius teens to get laid by trying to seem normal.

Hour of Slack #1559 - Pufferdome Devival 2015

Rev. Phineas Narco's new song "Unelectable" starts the show. The rest was recorded last July at the Starwood Festival during a special Friday midnight show in The Pufferdome. The Pufferdome is a huge inflated half-dome that holds a whole band and audience, with 360 degree video projections by Waking Dream, although in this case Waking Dream was projecting Rev. Stang's psychedelic SubGenius videos. We had to filter the audio recording a lot due to noise from the blowers that keep the Pufferdome puffed, but it doesn't sound any weirder than it sounded in real life. The music at the end is the song "Planet X or Bust" by The El Queso All Stars. Rant subjects include: the quotes on "Bob" Dobbs. NSA hawk-drones and Facebook job privacy. Phones that talk back. Occult 102 graduation. Rosicrucian history. Cannibal rednecks and the Self-Terrifying Whites of Dumbassica. Let "Bob" smoke you. Sci fi vs. religion vs. history and science. Slack and the Con. Luck vs. smarts. Don't envy the rich. SubGenius kooks. Satanists at Starwood -- all one of them. Our heroes.
