In the archive of old shows this one had a note scrawled on it: "GOOD ONE!" It features some fine excerpts from the Puzzling Evidence and ESO Swamp Radio shows of the time, early 2001, as well as truly bizarre music (The Bran Flakes, Great Groovy Neptune, The Band That Dare Not Speak Its Name, Big Mess Orchestra), a rant about The Conspiracy by Ivan Stang from the Winterstar Symposium, and another rant by St. @ndrew at a Tampa devival. But what makes this rerun special is that it is probably the first time we ever revealed on Hour of Slack (and in public generally) the truth about Earth and Mars -- that their orbits were exchanged by the Conspiracy. (Later we deduced that Mars actually changed places with Earth not in 1953 (as stated in this show) but during the so-called "World War 2.")

This might be one of the best Hours of Slack ever, because it's composed of some of the best of the other main SubGenius shows. Rev. Susie the Floozie's collage work jumps in and out between choice chunks of the Puzzling Evidence Show, ESO Swamp Radio form the turn of the century, and some astounding commercials by The Lymph Node Institute genii. The dependable old SubGenius Media Barrage tape #5 had also recently been digitized and was scavenged thoroughly. Altogether it is a cross section of SubGenius radio in its prime fighting condition. Highly recommended and produced.

This extremely lively episode from 2002 features many great men expounding on various weighty subjects, wielding absurdly deep thoughts. The very rift of the chasm between science and faith is rent asunder -- by the great Zoogz Rift himself! That sentence, and this show, might not make sense . . . to PINKS! But it's a classic for SubGeniuses. Then-new songs (Zoogz, Drexel, Half Man Half Biscuit) comingle with choice LeMur cut-ups and the old BAD DOKTORS album -- betwixt bouts of excellent Puzzling Evidence Show (Puzzling Evidence, Dr. Hal, Philo Drummond) and ESO Swamp Radio (Chas Smith, Rev. Ivan Stang, Lonesome Cowboy Dave). Even Christopher Hyatt and Israel Regardie contributed a song to this one.

This show is similar to #1288, while completely and utterly different. Again we take the 2010 DEVOtional in Cleveland for all it's worth, which turned out to be quite a lot. We are proud to present more of those exceedingly unusual DEVO covers, and new twisted songs and instrumentals by Malcolm Tent, Nervous Energy, Fartbarf, Ken the Magic Corner God, International Espionage!, and the new SubGenius arteest, Slack T. Collages by The Large, LeMur, The Berea Tape, Outmouth and others clutter the proceedings just as Hour of Slack fans have been trained to expect.
