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

This episode consists of the first parts of three other shows! First up is Dr. Philo Drummond's last in-person Puzzling Evidence appearance, from June 2017 just before he moved to Dokstok Mountain. Next up is part of an Austin radio show about movies, Lights Camera Austin, with Rev. Stang and director Sandy Boone being interviewed about the SubGenius documentary movie (premiering at SXSW in March). Finally there's the beginning of a very strange Time for the Show show, with Rev. Stang calling in on a crappy Discord line from his laptop, because those hosts must have wanted Stang to sound much drunker than he actually was. HOWEVER! The show opens with a Massive Hotdog Recall sign about America's first transgender mayor, and a new sermon (or reflection rather) by Uncle Dr. Onan Canobite. Titles and Gnus by LeMur as usual.

On X-Day, we'll get all our brain cells back, and our hearing, and eyesight, and maybe even our judgment. In the meantime, enjoy these Old Doktorz while they're still merely old and not yet either dead or repurposed. This is one of those OLD-old-fashioned shows with Lonesome Cowboy Dave and a few new old bands, in this case Massive Hotdog Recall and Walkenhorst, covering Cash. There's another glimpse of Philo Drummond and Rev. Bleepo Abernathy in the Hour of Slack Rest Home. All the rest of it is about the liberation of your mind… and our minds.

This Hour of Slack is actually SOMEBODY ELSE'S SHOW, an hour-long interview with Dr. Philo Drummond. Last summer, our friend Rev. Snappy Twig recorded this historic interview -- historic because you hardly ever get to hear Philo without other radio doctors jumping from subject to subject, and I think it better reveals the way Dr. Drummond's minds work now, and worked when the SubGenius outreach was first being planned. Rev. Snappy Twig, under his human street name "Sean," has a podcast called "SHARE A SLICE WITH SEAN", which you can find at shareaslicepodcast.com. His web page for this episode includes over a dozen really excellent links to various other SubGenius and related websites that you might be really glad to know about. He did a great job editing this and in encouraging Philo to tell the strange but true story of how the Church grew in the late 70s and early 80s. It's a fine companion to the documentary movie about the Church that's premiering at SXSW film festival in March.

We got some new music for you. Fresh! Hip! Swingin'! Well, maybe not hip. And the musicians themselves are not especially fresh. But the songs ARE! For instance, Massive Hotdog Recall -- with a name like that, and the only trombone solos that I know of in the rock genre, how can one go wrong? (The band leader is Al Mothersbaugh, cousin to the Devonian Mothersbaughs.) We also excavated some Rainmakers/Walkenhorst that we scraped off the sides of some lesser-known Bob albums, and we're re-exposing one of the many incredible fossil pieces mixed by Kings of Feedback (aka Bill T. Miller/O.B.E.) back when SubGenius Musicians worked REALLY HARD. Rev. Ivan Stang reads some shiny, sparkling new rants from Universal Uncle Onan Canotbite and Zigmunt Figment ("Yes, Promiscua, There Is a "Bob."). Stang and Lonesome Cowboy Dave ramble around by phone for a mere 25 minutes total, sticking to important subjects like the new "Bob" rubber masks and UFOs (Unidentified Floating Objects, this time). There's even some ranting about "Bob" himself, just like in the olden days!
