Hour of Slack #1237 - Live SubGenius New Year Special - Lonesome Cowboy Dave & StangDoe predict 2009
Recorded live on December 13, 2009 at WCSB-Cleveland. We start with some Christmas-y songs and collages, and then pretend that it's already 2010. Rev. Ivan Stang, Princess Wei R. Doe and Lonesome Cowboy Dave recap the major news events and deaths (and extinctions) of 2009 in surreal detail. Contains news of upcoming SubGenius and roller derby events, Stang's microlife update, semi-lucid banter, SubGenius Xmas songs, and the first known recordings of the actual voice of Tater Gumphries. Batteries not included. Some assembly required. Action figures sold seperately.

What are the holidays without reruns? This is the annual traditional Xmas Re-Rerun of #867 (& 921 and 1026 & 1077 & 1129), 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.

December 6, 2009 - Lonesome Cowboy Dave and Rev. Ivan Stang phoned in to Dr. Sinister's talk show, Radio Synesthesia, on WCSB Cleveland, and breathlessly talked for an hour about everything. EVERYTHING. All human cultures, their languages, and their general historical upshots are thoroughly covered in this hour. Not one single stone on any beach on Earth is left unturned. Guest caller No Money Mark also chimes in. While most Hours of Slack consist of 30 to 50 discreet tracks, this one consists of 4.

Some of the stranger and/or more proficient music by SubGenii that has built up in the Show Stash is featured in this episode. We also present unusually long excerpts of movie dialog from some equally unusual movies that might otherwise escape the notice of many weirdness connoisseurs. Music sources include: The Psycho Skeletons, The Attery Squash, The Duke of Uke, The 180 Gs, Stang/LeMur, SODDI, and Witch Disco (descendants of Einstein's Secret Orchestra). The last remaining shreds of Rev. Stang's rant from Starwood Festival 2009 are included along with collages by LeMur and Phineas Narco.

A good old-fashioned Hour of Slack -- albeit all-new. This one features a little bit of everything and everybody, with the accent on "Bob" Dobbs on the one hand, and The Conspiracy of the Normals on the other. Collages by all the masters, music from The Attery Squash, The 180 Gs, Stang/LeMur, Wilhelm Stahlhelm, Gadgetto, and others, and rants from various devivals and radio shows by old and young stalwarts, accent on the warts. And the discerning few will crap profusely when they hear the opening promo.
