  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 #1222 - DragonCon Pt.1 - live “Bob’s” Slack Time Funhouse/Hour of Slack Melding

    Rev. Susie the Floozie hosts this amazing blend of SubGeniusry. Many SubGenii were in Atlanta for a devival at the huge weirdo convention DragonCon, and Susie snuck a few old-timers into the studios of WREK at Georgia Tech to record 2.5 hours of bulldada. The main blabbermouths are Rev. Susie, Priestess Pisces, St. Byron Werner (Rural War Room), and Rev. Ivan Stang. In this episode we also hear as much of Pisces’ rant as is possible to play on public supported stations, plus a Negativland cover by The 180 Gs, location recordings of amusing DragonCon events such as the SuperVillain Contest, and something … catchy.

  3. Hour of Slack #1221 - Weird Covers of DEVO, Negativland, Joni Mitchell (DEVOtional Report 2)

    Here we have DEVOtional Report #2 plus misc. weird covers of everything from Nancy Sinatra to Negativland, with new material from Little Fyodor, Rural War Room, Rev. Wilhelm Stahlhelm, The Mutant Mountain Boys and a whole bunch a really good bands that we heard at the DEVOtional or else the latest NNBBM collection. A visit from Rev. Mark Hosler resulted in our acquisition of a whole album of Negativland covers by "The 180 Gs" of Detroit. There is also a 1950s German cover of "El Paso" by Lolita.

  4. [Hos] Hour of Slack #1220 - DEVOtional & Live Show 8-30-09

    59:53

    We attended and recorded the 2009 DEVOtional in Cleveland, devoted to all things DEVO. Part of this episode covers that, and features several novel covers of DEVO songs by various bands along with some unusually bran-splitting collages (largely by The Large). The bulk of the show was recorded live at WCSB-Cleveland with StangDoe in the studio and Lonesome Cowboy Dave calling in. The subject matter for that part pretty much runs the gamut.

  5. 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?

  6. 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.

  7. 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).

  8. 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.

  9. Hour of Slack #1207 - The Human Condition, Puzzling Evidence and Cool Band Names

    The May 22, 2009 Puzzling Evidence Show from KPFA Berkeley with host Puzzling Evidence, Dr. Hal, Dr. Philo Drummond and caller Phineas Narco forms the skeleton for this episode. The meat draped over these bones includes collages by our old pals LeMur and Norel Pref, as well as The Kleptones and Cuttlefish, but the "organs" are some new songs (and one old) by Little Fyodor, Ari Sponge, Max Slack, and Nenslo. Yes, NENSLO! Dozens of new band names are invented.

  10. Hour of Slack #1205 - Live Star Trek Spoiler Special - May 10 ‘09

    After a 15 minute collage of collages that will make you feel like you’re on serious hallucinogens, you’ll be brought down to earth, and then a lot farther down, by a particularly meandering and burbling live show with Rev. Stang and Princess Wei in the WCSB studio, and Lonesome Cowboy Dave on the phone. The fake Star Trek spoilers are just the beginning. "Let’s mince words and torture them until they talk! Waterboard them till they SPILL!"
