Hour of Slack #1593 - God Vs. "Bob" Vs. Science

Rerun of #866, from December 2002. Arteests include John Lennon, a lotta Lemur, Bro. Cleve Dunkan doing The SubGenius Alphabet, ESO Radio with Chaz Smith, Lonesome Cowboy Dave and Stang, Zoogz Rift, Drexel, DK Jones, Half Man Half Biscuit, Puzzling Evidence, The Black Lodge Singers, Dr. Philo Drummond, Rev. Jimmy Swaggart, Dr. Howll, Byron Werner collage x 10, Israel Regardie and Christopher Hyatt. We couldn't assemble a new SubGenius show this week because we only have one week in which to cast four fossil dinosaur tracks on Stang Ranch and scientifically map them out on a big grid before rains come and put them under water again for the next seven months. It's a long story. We're documenting the process. But this is a really good rerun and it's a better copy than could ever be downloaded before.

Hour of Slack #1584 - Trump Vs. DEVO

First up is the amazing brand new Rudy Schwartz Project song, "It's Time for Trump." We think this might become a widely replayed song. We have new music and a new rant from new contributors Rev. Experimental and Rev. Watt deFalk, respectively; two Rev. Jimmy Ryan pieces; Rev. Bleepo Abernathy covers the TMBG song "Am I Awake?" and we get two songs from Xposed 4Heads and one from The Fantastic Plastics, both of whom performed at the 2016 DEVOtional in Cleveland the night before this show was recorded, and about which StangDoe rhapsodize at length when Lonesome Cowboy Dave calls in. Subjects: The Bathroom People. SubGenius Horror Hosts and the OSI74 ROKU channel of SubGeniusly programming. Stang's health report. The insanity of the electorate. When the FBI caravan comes to town. When Dave got beaten by cops for three hours. ((Background music is all by CyberChump's "Their Moment of Perfect Happiness" (related to Xposed 4Heads).)) P.S. Stang was wrong, the first movie version of “I Am Legend” was titled “The Last Man on Earth”.

Rev. Ivan Stang and Princess Wei 'R.' Doe went searching for America, and found the Salton Sea. After some great musicollage with Lemur, Timothy Leary, Rev. Bleepo Abernathy, Glassmadness, GWAR, Nenslo, ZZ Top, and The Rudy Schwartz Project, Stang and Doe describe their travel adventures to Lonesome Cowboy Dave, who responds Davishly. Subjects include a Yes Chimp for Stang, V. Swarup's audio book "Q & A", Chameleonalia, the Bone Yard in Tucson, Dave's cough, Wei's mom in Carlsbad Caverns, The Thing?, and a sick clip from John Waters reading his audiobook "Carsick." StangDoe describe The Salton Sea area in grisly detail and play a very strange location recording of animal life in remote Stang County, Texas. American Sniper and The Interview are mocked and Dr. Sinister plays a redneck. The Rudy Schwartz Project performs the Swinging Love Corpses hit song, "Pick a Booger." The strange "STANG PUKES YOU" grafitti in Japan is described. Dave rants about the end of the world and Stang rants about mispronunciations of Wei's name. Dr. Sinister analyzes Dave's protest songs, then the classic anti-religious-nut-country protest song "Kill for God" by The Rudy Schwartz Project is played.

SubG-Negativland-Puzzling Evidence Thanksgiving Executive Banquet II

Nov. 25, 2005

This rerun show (originally #1024)  is interstrewn with our ever-present killer klips by Mister Fernandinande LeMur and Rev. Norel Pref, but most of it (labeled below as "SubNegPuz") is edited from the 5 hour Thanksgiving Business Banquet we enjoyed at the KPFA studios in Berkeley (kpfa.org), thanks to Don Joyce's Over the Edge and Doug Wellman's Puzzling Evidence. They are co-hosting and co-mixing. So to speak. Guests in this segment include Pope Michael Peppe, Dr. Philo Drummond, Princess Wei, Rev. Ivan Stang, many callers.

Hour of Slack #1391 - SubGenius Ultimate Xistlessnessmess Mix Rerun Special

What are the holidays without reruns? This is the hoary old annual traditional Xmas Re-Rerun of #867 (& 921 and 1026, 1077, 1129, 1236 and 1338), which was itself a condensation of some ancient 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. Includes over 66 separate tracks/songs/bits! And no, not one bit has been changed in all these years.

We are ON XISTLESSNESSMESS VACATION from Hour of Slack!

This episode assembled itself from various dope-related contributions by our best collagiasts (including LeMur, The Large and the newly-returned Heart Ignition), mixed with semi-appropriate cuts from the 13 X-Day live events: music, rants, and other mischief. It is a joyous celebration indeed. Munky Hyv, Rev. Jannus, Phat ManDee (three songs!), Tommy Amoeba, Jere Faison and Rev. Crazy Jim Jones are represented. We also hear, despite the taint of slight popularity, somewhat-commercialy-recorded music by DEVO and Jonathan Coulton.

Hour of Slack #1264 - Ultimate Old-School X-DAY Special - Rerun of #534 (1996) We are now off-world (or about to be), and refuse to produce new shows. Instead, we present a beloved oldie. And we are presenting it two weeks early, as we will be either on the Saucers or at Starwood, and won't want to mess with posting shows then. Back in 1996, just before the very first X-Day Drill at Brushwood, I, Stang, assembled this ultimate X-Day collage, song and rant special, utilizing the best UFO-related clips from our old Media Barrage albums (from the 1980s!) as well as the finest new stuff of the time, such as Nenslo's X-Day anthem and Papa Joe Mama's first X-Day sermon. You'll hear the infant voices of Puzzling Evidence, Dr. Philo Drummond, Dr. Hal, all the Churchly old-timers beck when they were mere 30-somethings and even 20-somethings. It is a trip back in time -- and yet, a trip into a BRAVE BRAVE FUTURE!
