THE PREPOSTEROUS BOLLOX OF THE SITUATION

A collection of stuff, things, nonsense, rants, raves, pretties, sillies, and gee-gaws from Rev. Hugo Nebula, Ordained Minister of the Church of the SubGenius. (And boobs. Sometimes there are boobs. Just like in real life.) Thank you for reading.

DON’T MISS THIS EPISODE! We wouldn’t use a term like “kick-ass” unless we meant it. We got near-perfect recordings of great bands and preachers at X-Day, and here we feature one song from each band plus some of the most pew-peelin’ preachin’ you’ll ever hear. St. Andrew the Impaled’s new song “A Saucer Built for One” is the funniest, porniest X-Day singalong since “Take Me Off to Space,” and much harder to remember! The Mutant Mountain Boys deliver “Spaceship Bound,” Evolution Control Committee mashes Zep and Britney, and Phat ManDee debuts an autiobiographical song, “Hey Fat Chick.” There’s even a vivid Armneji Front replay and description! The inspirational rants are by Rev. Baby Bear, Priestess Pisces, and St. Andrew the Impaled — and they will GIG you like a squid. Bonus: TWO parables by Rev. Skull, and lots of live running and gurgling commentary by Stang, Doe, and Lonesome Cowboy Dave.

"I just saw a girl who said she saw John Lennon walking down the street in New York wearing a button that said, "I love Paul." She asked him: "Why are you wearing an ‘I love Paul’ button?", and he said: "Because I love Paul."

So this is weird. I happened to be drinking a glass of milk when I took this album out to put it on. It went really well with my afternoon snack of a chocolate chip scone. But this is the first time that I’ve ever been drinking a glass of milk while reviewing an album. So strange! Pour yourself a safe glass of milk and let’s put this non-disowned-by-Captain-Beefheart Captain Beefheart album on!

This starts with a real authentic blues sound. I like how it’s mainly vocals in the very beginning and then the band comes in loud and strong. At that point it’s hard to understand what he’s singing, but that’s ok.

The second song is not nearly as bluesy and much more psychedelic sounding. Especially with the whisper of “Zig Zag” in the beginning. So trippy. I really like the raw sound of his voice. This song kind of makes you want to get up and dance. But after a big glass of milk and chocolate chip scone, you’ll probably just stay on the couch and tap your foot. Oh, it ends with another “zig zag” whisper, completing the psychedelic circle.

So far I’m really liking this album. It feels like music from the 60s but a tiny bit weirder, which is really giving it a timeless feel. Like "Dropout Boogie,” feels pretty out there but it also feels like a classic song, with that classic guitar riff that keeps repeating.

"I'm Glad,” sounds like a classic soul/do wop 1950s song. Have I heard this song before? It feels very familiar, but then maybe I’m just thinking of Joe Cocker or something.

Electricity,” is a real change from “I’m Glad”! This song sounds like something a taunting devil would dance a jig to. This song is really interesting. The vocals almost have a heavy metal/dark feel to them but the instruments are almost bluegrassy with the slide guitar and pluckiness of the notes. I’m getting a scary rural vibe from this song. Like a group farmer devils with a pitchfork and overalls would dance to it in a field at night. This could definitely go on a Halloween mix. For sure.

On to side two! Oh, Alex likes to play “Abba Zaba,” a lot. I like this song. He just said, “listen to this fucking song, there’s no other song like it!” I think it sounds like it should be in the Jungle Book movie. Or at least that there should be a friendly bear and mean snake dancing to it.

I’m surprised no one ever told me to listen to Captain Beefheart in college when I was into Tom Waits a lot. Although, I really only ever listened to “Closing Time,” and “Small Change,” anyway. I might not have heard this album in the same way that I’m hearing it now. Which is with a positive vibe, it’s making me feel kind of cool and rugged and relaxed at the same time.

I’m definitely liking this album much more than yesterday’s “Unconditionally Guaranteed,” but I’m still finding it pretty accessible music that could have been a part of The Last Waltz, don’t you think? Especially a song like “I’m Glad.”

Ultimately, I really liked this album and think that the more you listen to it the more you will discover about it, so I’m going to play it again sometime.

Recorded on July 6 at WCSB in Cleveland immediately after the return of Dr. Hal and Rev. Stang from the 17X-Day Drill at Wisteria. We have decided to release the story of what happened at 17X-Day gradually so as not to traumatize others as we were traumatized, and also to prevent liability problems. We skirt the issue for now for everyone’s own good; you’ll just have to take our word for it. The mysterious and terrible events are discussed, or rather hinted at, also by Lonesome Cowboy Dave and Dr. Sinister. The show opens with some more carny barker talking by Nate Eagle as well as a weird piece about UFOs by Joe Jeziorski. Nenslo’s classic X-Day hymn closes the show.

Herein we combine the incredible collage work of Rev. Susie the Floozie and a barely more credible live broadcast from WCSB-Cleveland featuring special guest Dr. Hal with Lonesome Cowboy Dave, Dr. Sinister and hosts Stang & Doe, both originally broadcast the weekend before 17X-Day. Rev. the Floozie’s tour-de-force took her weeks to edit, whereas the live Cleveland show ate up a mere half hour. Despite the sad punchline — the world didn’t end, obviously — this pre-X-Day show demonstrates the sweet, trusting faith of the SubGenius Elder Hierarchites that all unbelivers will die. Little did we know how bitterly our glowing hopes would be dashed against the cold, spikey rocks of yet another hard reality. There is supreme irony in the subsequent events, the recordings of which will be heard in upcoming episodes.

Deborah Harry - 1979

"Likewise, as I move among the ancient standing stones of the Wiltshire village of Avebury early on a Tuesday morning in June in the company of local resident Julian Cope, who is dressed as a cross between an ’80s peace convoy anarchist and a WWII Nazi flying ace, what’s remarkable is not how much attention he draws, but how little.

""I can be lying in bed and then forty seconds later I am dressed," he rationalizes, from behind impenetrable shades, standing on a bank above the stone circle, as sheep bleat into my 1995 Sanyo TRC-570M Dictaphone behind him, "but small communities have room for a local figure like this. All the old guys round here that come and do building and plumbing for our house saw Hendrix in Bath in 1967 and they’ve all got a crush on him. They don’t see him as a guy, but as an exotic peacock creature. There’s always room for one fucker. Everyone’s got space in their hearts for one mad cunt.""

We’re posting this early because the world ends next week, and we don’t want to have to stop right in the middle of the Apocolypse just to mess with distributing this show.

This 2003 episode was one listener’s intro to the Church of the SubGenius, and he recently drew our attention to it because he was looking for a copy. We’re glad he did because neither the war nor X-Day have changed much, and our 2003 description remains almost valid: “This is The Greatest Hour of Slack Ever. I know I often say that, but this time it’s true for sure. The live ESO shows of the last 3 weeks have been WAR TALK and X-Day Hankerin’. The best in those veins that wasn’t TOTALLY stupid, yet was still gut-blowingly hilarious - yet horrifying, considering the subject matter - those clips went into this one. Also, Mister F. Le Mur cranked out noise like he previously cranked out art. I guess Le Mur is now the Slack man’s Terry Gilliam to the Slack man’s Monty Python, in that he does a lot of the show, yet he’s never heard. This show furthermore contains an Artemia Salina chop-up which should get lots of future replay as it’s copied and bounced around audio sarcasm collectors. And, the newly Hour of Slacked Hank Flloyd and the Swerving Headlights presents yet ANOTHER great alien abduction C&W ballad.” The live parts were recorded at WCSB, Cleveland, for the late Chas Smith’s show ESO Swamp Radio. Chas is heard along with Lonesome Cowboy dave, Preincess Wei R. Doe and Rev. Stang.

First part: some Starwood Stangrant, some St. Andrew the Impales X-Day, Papa Joe rant, GGG rant, and clips of antique carny talker NATE EAGLE, thanks to precious recordings relocted by Rev. Taylor Jessen in The Firesign Theatre’s vaults! After that, it’s a no-holds barred, any-throw take-down with lip wrestlers Stang, Wei and Lonecow. Spock vs. Darth Vader. Stang and Doe’s story of Obama’s psy-ops, spying on us and Mr. Sister using Google Earth vans, staged accidents, bugs implanted in bugs, robot bird drones. Stop snoring, Sleeple! Invaders from Canadia. Schizophrenic? What’s the dif? Abduble Personality. That cult of Isis worshippors in the Mideast — DAVE DISAPPEARS! Obama cut him off! Fudd ‘em if they can’t take a joke.
