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

FIRED! The West is fired. The East is drowned. TIME FOR A PARTY IN THE MIDWEST! -- before the rattlesnake-nadoes, anti-masker water riots and burning cactuspus storms beset EVEN US, the Savage Mind of the Country's Interior (as per PuzEv). Sheridan retells the story of Adam and Eve. Onan publishes a SubGenius newspaper which Stang reads. And there are AT LEAST THREE SONGS ABOUT THE WORLD BURNING, ranging from classic masterpiece to bulldada doktor. Noisemakers include Cult of Zir, Soma for Savages, Rev. Negative, and "TNN" (Dr. Faux involved). Towards the end are two epic ancient tracks! One is Rev. Slanderbob's 2010 remix (adding music) of a pretty blistering and energetic devival sermon rant preached (in the 1990s?) somewhere by Rev. Stang before he lucked into Slack and got old and calmed down considerably. The other is an operatic instrumental tour-de-force by The Rudy Schwartz Project called "Buncombe Doubly Damned" from the album Delicious Ass Frenzy. (Trivia note: Stang is excitedly editing a music video using insect wildlife and goat ranch footage to illustrate this RSP composition -- which grotesquely tips its ridiculously ungainly hat to the incredible "Spaghetti Western" scores composed by by the late Ennio Morricone.)

This is not exactly a rerun, but it was recorded on Halloween night of 1985. The great SubGenius ranter and assassin G. Gordon Gordon was in town from Bolivia, and we'd been invited to Karen Denard's popular nightly talk show on the Dallas NPR station, KERA. Pastor Buck Naked was also there. This would have been Hour of Slack #4, but, it was a competing station's show so we waited almost three years and then played it in small bits and pieces over several Hours of Slack, around show #150. So this is the first time it's ever been played in its whole one-hour form on Hour of Slack. Many of the callers were Dallas SubGenii, pretending to be new to it. The callers, Buck Naked and GGG were all in very fine form that night, and the host was super cool. Proof that David Letterman's producers shouldn't have been too chickenshit to have us on his show.

The Internet version is "clean," but has a lot of news tacked onto the end, plus some cool Swinging Love Corpses music.

RADIO SAFE VERSION - Much more music than usual in this episode! You may have heard of some of the bands... Oingo Boingo is the only "logo band," though. We have Cult of Zir, Rubix Pube, After Hours, SubG Kids, Thunk!, and TTN (Dr. Argus Faux & friends), plus some skeletons who are psychotic. Spoken and/or ranted word comes from Sheridan (new), ESO Swamp Radio (old) and Napoleon Hill (REALLY old).
