Hour of Slack #1303 - Rerun of #553 (1996) - Stang Fail / Christian Bashing


We are having a busy week so we picked a rerun that has been begging for 15 years to be reran. The first half is mostly a prime excerpt from the Chas-Stang-Dave ESO Swamp Radio shows of the '90s, an improvised mini-play in which SubGenius scribe Stang goes from being welcomed into the Conspiracy of the Rich to bumming wine money from Dave. The second half is largely from the Columbus 1996 devival, with a heartfelt anti-Christian rant by Rev. Steve Slack. It's all punctuated by some well-chopped Christian anti-drug praying and two songs by My Life with the Thrill Kill Cult. There is even a mini-rant by Rev. Jesus of the Church of the SubGenius.

ESO Radio on WCSB Cleveland with Chas, Dave, Princess Wei "R." Doe:

Princess Wei sings "BLIND PIG" w/ ESO musical backup... SPOOKY

Stang sleazes up to various Dave/Wei characters, selling BUG PORN PICS for $1... BUG PORNO riffs. "Here's a cockroach being eaten by a Wolf Spider Wasp... look at him just chewin' away..." Wimp Cop Dave's investigation of the Bug Porno Ring while Chas sings "Death of a Fly," ad for Columbus show; homeless Dave tries to bum money from Stang, who blows him off calously; then the Dave-voice of Stang's conscience tries to make him feel bad about scorning the homeless bums. Stang decides to go back and kill, recycle the bum, but dies in drunken car wreck after robbing convenience store on the way (also prompted by voice of conscience). Stang monolog on his own cruelty and cynical callousness, kisses up to the Masons, Circle of Ten, Con. Stang is inducted into the Conspiracy, meets with the Circle of 10 Rockefeller/ CIA/ corporuler board,  but informed he owes ALL the money to THEM. (Chas segues into scary version of "Feelin' Groovy".) Forlorn Stang meets panhandling bum LCDave in alley, whines about the money, tries to get some from Dave. Stang attempts to decipher the BILL from the Conspiracy... seques into the aged homeless Stang rambling like a toothless old stewbum/Little Big Man about the old days when he was on the Escape Vessels, elected President, lost it all... mocked as senile by the other bums. "Ah wuz Rev. Ivin Stang, star of stage and airwaves... I'se the first one to xerox "Bob's" head... it jest ain't fair..." They beat the aged rheumatic Stang. Chas: "Life 101... you FLUNK." "This parable was offered only as a lesson..." "You don't need a life; JOIN... The Church of the SubGenius." Segue back to depressed Stang on the Escape Vessels, getting jaded, bored, tired with all the Pink torturing and total Slack... "This isn't all I expected it to be... BORED with pleasure... is this what it's gonna be like forever?" ELVIS closes the show.

Thrill Kill Cult: "APOLLO 69"
