  1. Hour of Slack #1229 - Show Collision - Rerun of #344 from 1992

    17 years ago! This one is a mix of recordings from various SubGenius shows at various stations, including KPFA’s Puzzling Evidence and Cleveland’s WCSB from long before the SubGenius Foundation moved to Cleveland! You’ll hear people who have long since been unpersoned, and much younger voices of people you now think of as old. There’s also some great kook, prank-call and Bad Music material for the bulldada collectors. Hopefully you will be inspired to donate to the WCSB.org pledge drive coming up next week. We could all use a donation, actually. DID I MENTION that there is a SubGenius devival with the Amino Acids in Detroit this November 28, and weekly devivals in Chicago all through December? No? Well, see subgenius.com events for details. And with that, we hop into the wayback machine and vanish, backwards!

  2. Hour of Slack #1217 - 12 X-Day F - The Big Rock Candy Planet

    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?

  3. Hour of Slack #1215 - 12X-Day D - The Daughters of Noah / Secrets of The Amino Acids

    This is another "X-Day Drill Variety Show." With an opening collage by talented newcomers, its skeleton is a "Live Hour of Slack" performed from the Brushwood stage-studio in front of an audience, involving mostly Dr. Hal, Rev. Susie the Floozie, Priestess Pisces, and a revealing interview with Rev. Angry Larry (grunt for The Amino Acids). Interspersed are songs by Phat Man Dee, The Amino Acids, John Deere Tractor Beam, actual secret recordings of the forbidden SubGenius bonfire and sacred-book-burning, insertions from the Puzzling Evidence show, and a great pulpit-pounding rant by new preacher Rev. Crazy Jim Jones. And Fernandinande LeMur is never very far away.

  4. Hour of Slack #1214 - 12X-Day C: The Horror of The Others

    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.

  5. Hour of Slack #1213 - 12 X-Day B: The Naked Bobtism Report

    This unusual documentary episode captures one very sexy and exciting Saturday afternoon at X-Day Drill 12 (held at NY campground Brushwood). We intercut a "live Hour of Slack" sex education show held on the main stage (Dr. Hal, Stang, Lonesome Cowboy Dave officiating), with an amazing series of reports by Dave and Priestess Pisces on the Naked SubGenius Mass Bobtism event — which almost turned tragic when there occurred a sudden epidemic of sin sac near-rupturings. We also hear some excellent live John Deere Tractor Beam (personal friends of The Amino Acids) and bits of the SubGenius Gang Wars, as well as chunks of a post-12X-Day episode of Dr. Sinister’s Radio Synesthesia (WCSB-Cleveland).

  6. Hour of Slack #1212 - 12X-Day A: God’s Omnimpotence (or “Dr. Hal and Lonesome Cowboy Dave on Synesthesia”)

    Episode 1212 is the FIRST of many more EDITED ones to come about 12X-Day, when the last shall be first. Because we’re already behind on shows, and faced with several dozen hours of INSTOUNDING location audio to edit, we’re FIRST starting with the LAST things recorded during the 12X-Day Drill: Dr. Sinister’s uncut WCSB RADIO SYNESTHESIA show from July 5 night, broadcast right after Stang, Princess Wei and Dr. Hal and had returned from the great event, joined by phone by Lonesome Cowboy Dave. This otherwise unbroken recording is broken up by LeMur, new songs by Max Slack and Phineas Narco, and a bit of fresh Puzzling Evidence.

  7. Hour of Slack #1211 - Rerun of #951 7X-Day, 2004

    Puzzling Evidence show from KPFA, 7-9-04, has Dr. Hal and Philo Drummond reporting on their 7X-Day adventures… from this skeleton we hung documentary recordings from 7X-Day. Some audio is from the StangCam and other is from Pater Nostril’s soundboard. Clips from the 7X-Day shows at WREK Atlanta’s "Bob’s Slacktime Funhouse" with The Lymph Node Institute and Rev. Susie the Floozy further illustrate the promise and tragedy of X-Day.

  8. Hour of Slack #1210 - Live 6-21-09 Pre-X-Day

    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.

  9. Hour of Slack #1209

    AMAZING! Some NEW X-Day hymns (including one sung, yes, SUNG by Rev. Susie the Floozie!) are intercut with about 50 of our favorite bits and pieces related to the end of all normal human reality, scheduled for this July 5. We’re getting ready to head for Brushwood in New York for the big blast-off party, so from here on out, except for a live show next week, The Hour of Slack will probably henceforth always be in reruns, forever. Unless we’re stood up again by the Xists and "Bob." This is only the 12th time we will have gathered out there at 7 a.m., faithfully awaiting Their Arisal.
