    Hour of Slack #1859 - War to End All Wars Against Reruns (rerun of #447/859)

    Play Episode Listen Later Dec 1, 2021 60:15

    A rerun of a rerun of a rerun! We must wonder how deep they'll eventually go, drilling into the past -- perhaps to avoid an uncertain future? Or just to reanimate greatness long thought extinct, like the recreation of mammoths from frozen DNA? Perhaps an even more pertinent question: who cares?  HoS #447 (rerun as #859 in 2002) was a 1994 compilation of some of the best bits from the 1991 Hour of Slack and KPFA shows regarding the Gulf War, with some things that came later, especially a collage video by Patriris. A highlight is the Kyle Kossup song, "America Feels Good About Itself." Some 2002 live ESO radio on the then-current War Thing fills it out. It is uncanny how perfectly appropriate the January 1991 Gulf War material sounded in October 2002 and now sounds in 2021. http://subgenius.com

    Back in them days of 2002 A.D., when our spines were stout and strong and straight, there were so many audio contributions coming in from so many artists, and so many subjects covered on the various other SubGenius-related shows (especially WCSB's ESO Swamp Radio) that we were making 'theme' shows. The most common subjects were "Bob," the Conspiracy, whatever war was going on at the time, aliens, apocalypses, and, of course, sex. That's what this is; but "love" sounded more atypical for Hour of Slack. Music includes Consortium of Genius, ESO,n The Swingin' Love Corpses, Elvis Presley, The El Queso All-Stars, the Broadway cast of "Guys n' Dolls," StAllio, Heart Ignition, The Bran Flakes, Mark Mothersbaugh, and The Rainmakers. LeMur collages collide with the listener's inner brain. It's radio-safe. http://subgenius.com

    The pattern (and Stang's spinal therapy) continues with another THOUSAND-SHOW-OLD SHOW! YET AGAIN, AGAIN! #1854 is really #854, rerun from 2002. In those days, when we had a lot of new material, we broke it up into "themes" just as an arbitrary way of organizing the mass of sound files. The theme in this case developed when Dr. Philo Drummond unearthed some old tapes of The Pink Boyz, the rock band headed by the late Dr. X, a brief and early co-sub-founder of the Church. Dr. X, Stang's best pal in high school, died young of drugs -- mostly alcohol. Luckily the depressing nature of the alcoholism theme is offset by the inanity of the counterbalancing psychedelics theme. There's some excellent ESO Swamp Radio ranting, LeMurian collage, and music by Consortium of Genius, Dr. Onan's Wotan Band, The Pink Boyz, The Rainmakers, Reagan's Polyp, Kim Fowley, and Rocko Schwab. http://subgenius.com

    When the Church outreach was first being developed under "Bob," there were originally three mortals involved: Ivan Stang, Dr. Philo Drummond, and the late "Dr. X," aka Deacon Lamont Duvoe, aka Monte Dhooge, lead singer and songwriter of his band The Pink Boyz. We recently had cause to unearth Monte's early SubGenius preaching and Pink Boyz recordings, and realized it was high time for a Dr. X tribute. His preaching was used a lot on our old Media Barrage 4 album (which was never released on CD, just on cassette, decades ago) and parts of that are woven in and around the Pink Boyz songs. There are many choice slips of INSANE Dallas Christian radio preachers too. Almost all of this dates from 1978 to 1980. http://subgenius.com LOG OF THIS EPISODE:   (Numbered tracks are from Media Barrage #4.)   1 LeMur - HOS_Intro812 00:36 2 The Pink Boys - Put Your Hands on the Radio 02:44 3 Pink Boyz Intro 02:33 4 The Pink Boys - Pink Boy 02:49 5 20-Humanism-GimmePilsSong 00:38 6 21-WotF-Units for Eunuchs 00:35 7 The Pink Boys - APARTMENT COMPLEX 03:08 8 24-WotF-NormalMachine 00:46 9 The Pink Boys - Watching the TV 02:28 10 26-TVCollage-NewFace~ 01:07 11 28-NentalTV-SmelloVision~X 02:16 12 29-Robison Judgement on cities 00:48 13 42-DeaconDuvoe&Stang 10:31 14 43-ThanksBob,Pils&Blood 00:50 15 44-SubG Retreats Mr 00:23 16 45-Girls,SendPictures! 00:49 17 The ink Boyz - Nice_Guys 02:39 18 46-Duvoe&Stang $ 02:30 19 50-PetRock?CoverName 01:35 20 51-DuvoeStang-ForeignMinist 00:39 21 52-UseMeJesus-InsaneHealing 00:55 22 53-StangDuvoe-HelpMinisters 01:00 23 55-Annointing-Oil 00:41 24 56-Duvoe-BobSave America 02:40 25 The Pink Boys - FootballHero 04:01 26 cred Pink Boyz to HoS on Monte 00:13 27 HoS 19X-Day?

    RADIO SAFE VERSION. It's a different campground, in a completely different part of the country, with a slightly different audience, but it's still another early July X-Day Drill live show with Dr. Hal and Rev. Stang. There are about 20 years' worth of those in the can. Luckily, this one is spiced up by Father Joe Mama's grippingly unforgettable first sermon at 24X-Day, a reveal of Wizard Bong the mysterious document, a little more SWONK comics and Dobbstown Mirror readings, and the romantic Rudy Schwartz Project song, "Farley Granger's Oxygen Tent." subgenius.com

    The 24X-Day board recordings weren't lost after all! However, we're just beginning to sort through them. Meanwhile, here are reports on the Drill both real and fake, pieced together from fragments, lies, comic books, and The Dobbstown Mirror, with Stang doing a lot of reading. (One of the comic books being read is SWONK.) We also unearthed some nice Norel Pref collages to punctuate the various readings, bleedings and seedings. Music includes The Swinging Love Corpses, The Rudy Schwartz Project, Cyberchump, and monster movie soundtracks. subgenius.com

    RADIO SAFE VERSION. The 26th X-Day Drill, previously called 24 X-Day, was a great reminder that maybe we'd better either start working on our own escape ships, or clean up the one we're already on. We're still rounding up recordings -- some may have been lost to Tropical Storm Elsa! -- but we have some early excerpts including a fantastic, sick Papa Joe Mama sermon and some killer music by Rubix Pube. There's also some terrible music by Fidd Chewley and Rev. Peas, and a wonderful 12-minute media barrage by R.A.T.H.O.L.E. The Rudy Schwartz Project and some truly puzzling Evidence round it out. Stang gives thanks in an impromptu rant inspired by the real-life invasion of the resort by walking catfish. subgenius.com

    RADIO SAFE! And it's a rerun, a real oldie. Hour of Slack #535, 1996. It's WHAT WILL HAPPEN ON X-DAY, in excruciating detail. It features what may well be the most forceful (and informative!) rants ever delivered by both Rev. Ivan Stang and Dr. K'taden Legume, sermons recorded in moments when those worthies were totally caught up in the thrall of "Bob" -- divine messengers, as it were, helpless to do anything but preach the hardest truths of SubGenius Orthodox Dobbsian doctrine. Punctuating these heart-staking sermons are some of the most intensive so-called "Media Barrage tapes" from the 1980s, especially segments from St. Byron Werner's historic cassette collage masterpieces "Space Age Bachelor Pad" (the actual origin of that hipster genre catch-phrase) and "Dougs, Drugs and Doctors." Voices heard from the old SubGenius Media Barrage tapes include Dr. Philo Drummond, Hellswami Satellite Weavers (the great SubGenius "ur-illustrator" narrating into a tape deck on a drive through Meteor Crater, Arizona), Former Pastor Buck Naked, Dobbs' bodyguard Dr. G. Gordon Gordon, Pope Michael Flores and even Janor, back in the olden days. We should have been running this episode annually, and would do so henceforth, were not X-Day imminently nigh. http://subgenius.com

    RADIO SAFE! But perhaps as evil as it is good. The mysterious Cleveland artist that calls itself SHERIDAN has provided yet more Show fodder, and it comes at a good time as we are preparing to leave the planet, for good this time. This is a true media barrage, a little of everything that you mostly have never heard before, or heard so long ago -- like at the age of six or seven -- that you still remember it vaguely. Sheridan also does his disturbed radio DJ bit some. "Station WWYN" he calls it. So, strap your headphones or hearing aids on tight! http://subgenius.com
