Hour of Slack #1319 - 14X-Day 2: First Meows


Aside from the song with which Evolution Control Committee closed their fantastic X-Day Drill set, this episode edited itself. The live Wisteria café-stage Hours of Slack (begun on last week's broadcast) unexpectedly took off into a lively discussion by Dr. Hal, Papa Joe Mama and Priestess Pisces about CATS and the Conspiracy -- which provided the perfect framework for a "jam meme" from the first night's excellent jam/ranting recordings: the ongoing "Meow Mix," which grew from Pisces getting the crowd to sing along with SOMETHING into a horrible clinging inside-joke for this whole X-Day Drill (though certainly not the only one, BUTT-HURTEDNESS being another). There is actually some beautiful music included from that 6-29-11 jam, thanks to singers and musicians who happen to be actual touring professionals (such as Rev. Stick and Phat ManDee) as well as gifted amateurs like Princess Wei, Rev. "Suds" Pshaw, Rev. Hazel (on SITAR!), Rev. Catfeather and others. Collages by The Large open and close the show, but it climaxes with a variation by Pisces of "The Star Spangled Banner" that has to be heard to be believed. It sounds like Kate Smith backed by Hendrix.

Nonstop streaming of all SubGenius shows! -- past and present, hosted by Rev. SlanderBob:

NOTE: THE HOUR OF SLACK is released in two versions.

The X-RATED "INTERNET VERSION" contains all original "fucks," "shits," "God damns," etc., and this is the one which is downloadable from SubSITE and which is sent to individual subscribers OR non-American radio stations.

All American radio stations are sent the "PG RATED CENSORED VERSION," which has the Bad Words either reversed, bleeped, or replaced with the spoken word "Bob", depending on what works best.

The Church of the SubGenius Radio Ministry seeks to brainwash you totally into abject lifelong subservience to The High Epopt and Living SlackMaster, J. R. "Bob" Dobbs, BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY.
