The secrets of the SubGenius world-ritual-exorcism called X-Day are finally revealed. After this broadcast, we probably don’t need to produce any more shows. The deed is done. There is no turning back. Dr. Hal, The Amino Acids, LeMur, Norel Pref, Priestess Pisces, Rev. Susie the Floozie, Phat Man Dee, Puzzling Evidence, Dr. Philo Drummond… what does any of it matter now?
Excitement, anticipation and severe brain damage mark this episode recorded live at the WCSB studio, as Stang, Lonesome Cowboy Dav, Princess Wei and numerous collagiasts and singers prepare for the upcoming end of Pink Human civilization on July 5. Includes a marvelous collage by Rev. Susie the Floozie about "Bob" Dobbs, X-Day and the Church of the SubGenius. Odd note: this particular show was videotaped by a director who was in town getting footage for an authorized documentary about DEVO. At least, the part that happened in the studio was videotaped.
NOTE: We of The SubGenius Foundation be off the Internet for most of next week, so we are uploading next week’s episode a bit early.
For this Post-12X-Day special, we intercut the very first of the live-on-stage Hours of Slack (in this case starring Dr. Hal and Priestess Pisces) with rants by Rev. Carter LeBlanc and Rev. Stang, along with some of the music of X-Day: Phat Man Dee’s torid torch singing, Fat Free’s sex rock, a Hal/Pisces improvised gospel song, and John Deere Tractor Beam’s rip-offs of The Amino Acids. We are even privileged to hear a Church ritual that is usually kept secret: The Launching of the Bleeding Head of Muammar al-Gaddafi.
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.
