Hour of Slack #1280 - Great New Music by Various SubGenius Artists

I, Stang got busy with my online SubGenius History/Cult-Running class this week, and we suddenly came into a lot of really great, previously unreleased music, so this is one of those "Sons of Zappa" mostly-music shows that we produce now and then. LeMur, The Large, Sudasana, SlanderBob, and Mr. Rection provided many collages, and our frequent caller Bernard is represented, but mainly it's a new/old Rudy Schwartz Project album -- new to Hour of Slack anyway -- and an incredible CD by some folks we met last X-Day Drill, who assemble ear-ripping music under the name RAINBOW. Consortium of Genius also has a new CD out, with a hymn to Cthulhu on it (with guest SubGenius vocals); Rev. Bleepo Abernathy did a beautiful "Beautiful World" cover; and we nabbed two songs from the movie satire about rock stardom, "Walk Hard - The Dewey Cox Story." WARNING: after you hear this show, at least one of these songs will be stucking looping in your head as the worst brainworm you've ever had.

Hour of Slack #1279b - Rerun of #903, Philo at 6X-Day Drill

The real episode #1279, a mostly-girls mess from 13X-Day Drill, is so XXX-rated that it can only be distributed on the Internet. We had to send our broadcast stations an alternate 'clean' show, and it's this rerun of #903 from 2004 and the 6X-Day Drill. Only, this is the unclean, profanitized version of what we sent the stations. Some great reporting by Dr. Philo Drummond on the Puzzling Evidence show about his 6X-Day adventure forms the core, with location recordings from the event illustrating or contradicting his memories. Some of our oldest collage tapes from the early 1980s, before Hour of Slack, are included, particularly the UFO-oriented material from Media Barrage #2 (1982).

Hour of Slack #1279 - XXX-Rated SubGirl-Dominated Internet-Only 13X-Day Special

I dunno WHAT we're gonna send the broadcast stations this week -- maybe a rerun -- because there's no way any of the tracks of this episode would make sense if they were censored into being safe for broadcast in the U.S.A. It's all the best bits from 13X-Day Drill that were just too raunchy, philosophically offensive or just plain fucked up to even consider for prime time. Dr. Legume's legendary tale of rapine, which inspired several Church schizms and meme abuses, starts it off. We hear some blistering, wallpaper-peeling rants from several of the sweet little ladies of the Church, including the sailor-mouthed Priestess Pisces, Rev. Susie the Floozie, Popess Pantiara Evokavitch, Rev. Pockets, and Priestess Enshrina. Ministry of Slack is represented with a great sermon by Rev. Sweetness McGee. Rev. Angry Larry tears reality a surrealistic new asshole, and Rev. Panik ends the show with a bizarre a capella torch-blues-Elvisoid original SubGenius song. An epic spazz doktor duet with DJ Shaver and Pisces, "DIE MOTHERFUCKER DIE," with Many-Fisted Tails of Connie, is interspersed amongst the shouted word performances.

Hour of Slack #1278 - Leftovers of Involuntary Slack

This episode has a little bit of everything: new music and old (DEVO, Rudy Schwartz Project, Jonathan Coulton, Many Fisted Tails of Connie and St. N and Helena Handbasket), a zillion new collages by Fernandinande LeMur, and bits from unheard SubGenius radio: Dr. Sinister's RADIO SYNESTHESIA, old ESO Swamp Radio with Lonesome Cowboy Dave, 13X-Day live radio with Dr. Philo Drummond, Dr. Hal, Rev. Susie the Floozie and Rev. Ivan Stang. And then there's also a mess of other weird stuff.

Hour of Slack #1277 - Live, Oct. 3 2010 - Rachel Maddow Meets "Bob"

Only a small part of this involves Rachel Maddow's TV report involving the Church of the SubGenius. There's music (Rudy Schwartz Project, Jonathan Coulton, Many Fisted Tails of Connie, and Xandy Smith (the actual son of Rev. Stang)), many fine LeMurian collages, Puzzling Evidence, The Large, and a lot of verbiage by Lonesome Cowboy Dave. Host Rev. Stang reviews the movie, MONSTERS, but otherwise, the subject matter is all over the place and off the charts. To tell the truth we can't remember and haven't listened back. We're getting ready for the NYC SubGenius show.
