NN: Wet-Brained Clairvoyance (Morning Zoo Edition)

“Any effort which helps the powerful will be elevated and amplified, while any effort which inconveniences them falls into an empty void.” -Caitlin Johnstone “The degree to which I want violence in my art is inversely proportional to how much I want it in my life.” -NN NN (c. 1970) is a self-described “psychedelic gangster”; an untamed sexual psychonaut and holy war occultist who has cheated death more times than even he can recall. Operating consistently at or beyond what most would likely regard as being the extreme fringes of society, he began his non-career as a pre-internet non-commercial amateur pornographer, quickly realizing that there are some very real and less than fortunate consequences that can (and do) occur as a direct result of flowing either against or apart from the societal infrastructures of power and officialdom.  Despite being met with varying degrees of resistance, NN fearlessly continued to defy conventions of logic, humor, and taste as well as the bounds of legality itself, most often in the guise of music. His work typically operates within his two favored idioms of “modern classical death metal” and “psychedelic noisecore” (perhaps most notably with bands such as To Live and Shave in L.A., To Live and Shave in L.A. 2, and Hatewave). Nevai went on to further develop and refine his own forms of what he refers to as KLASSIKILL, AKTION, and DANGER MUSIC. On this episode of The Exile Hour we throw back more than a few with Nevai and discuss matters related to his uniquely hallucinogenic worldview, as well as his recent four (potentially five)-part deluxe CD digi-book series "The Price of Frontier." The books—which include outlandish ...

Boyd Rice: The Outsider's Outsider

“Boyd Rice is a black pimp.” —Charles Manson “Boyd Rice was my mentor." —Marilyn Manson “Boyd is an iconoclast!” —Anton LaVey, Church of Satan “Boyd Rice could be the next John F. Kennedy or Jesus Christ.” —Kim Fowley “(Boyd Rice) is a bad influence.” —Der Spiegel Referred to by some as “The most dangerous man alive”, Boyd Rice (c. 1956) is a pioneering American artist, occultist, prankster, mystic, social critic, archivist, and provocateur whose impact & influence has penetrated nearly every level of global underground culture; a remarkably brazen and polarizing figure who has courted endless controversy worldwide over a span of more than four decades. Rice initially came to prominence in the 1970s as one of the founders of the “Industrial Music” genre and as one of the first artists signed to Mute Records. He quickly gained a reputation for starkly ritualistic live performances that were regarded as being the most abrasive, minimalistic, dangerous, and blisteringly high volume concerts ever staged. As early as 1980, he was already being hailed as “The Godfather of Noise”. Since then, Rice—a high school dropout raised in a Southern California trailer park—extended his creative pursuits to innumerable fields including visual art, film, literature, photography, acting, interior decoration/design, and culinary arts (taking first prize in the 2012 Denver County Fair Jello molding competition) among other things; something of a Renaissance Man for an age of decadence and decline.  In his own words: “My life is a testament to the idea that you can achieve whatever the hell you want if you possess ...

KEEPING IT RAËL: Were Jesus, Buddha, and Muhammad all Swastika-loving swingers from another solar system?

On December 13, 1973 French automobile journalist and race car driver Claude Vorilhon purportedly experienced a physical encounter with what he believed to be an extraterrestrial human. This celestial being, which referred to itself as Yahweh, allegedly claimed to be a representative of a civilization from another solar system within the Milky Way referred to as the Elohim (meaning “Those who come from the sky”). Yahweh apparently went on to describe in detail how the Elohim were advanced scientists responsible for creating all life on Earth 25,000 years ago using DNA and advanced genetic engineering, eventually creating man in their own image. Vorilhon claimed that Yahweh also revealed to him that members of the Elohim appeared as terrestrial humans throughout history when having encounters with descendants of the humans they created in order to purposefully mislead them into believing that they were angels, cherubim, or gods. Prophets or messengers of the Elohim apparently included Buddha, Jesus, and Muhammad among others. Vorilhon purported to have been informed that he was in fact the last prophet, and was given the final message of the Elohim conveying to him that their purpose is to bring global awareness about the Elohim, and that if humans become peaceful and aware enough, they are prepared to return to Earth and be welcomed by all of humanity. Following his extraterrestrial encounter, Vorilhon changed his name to Raël (meaning "messenger of the Elohim") and founded the International Raëlian movement. On this episode of THE EXILE HOUR we are joined by U.S. Raelian Movement Communications Director and Head of Public Relations Felix Clairvoyant. Clairvoyant is also a certified massage therapist, personal trainer, and former molecular biologist. Additionally, he holds ...

The John McAfee Thanksgiving Special

“Liberty is the domain of the Sovereign. Servitude the domain of the collective.” -Yukio Mishima John McAfee (c. 1945) is a larger than life figure who requires little introduction. He is presently living in exile while simultaneously making a bid for the White House as a current U.S. Presidential candidate (despite claims that he has zero interest in becoming president). He also ran for President in 2016. Known as something of a sexual deviant, McAfee is both a libertarian and a libertine in every sense of the word. Former NASA programmer and founder of the computer software company McAfee Associates, Inc., McAfee first came to prominence after developing the world’s first commercial antivirus software program simply called “McAfee.” McAfee has become a major advocate for cryptocurrency as a way to remove taxation and financial power away from corrupt global governments. He has gone so far as to promise that if Bitcoin doesn’t reach the value of $1m by the end of 2020, he will eat his own dick. In 2012 McAfee was suspected of murder by Belizian officials after his American expatriate neighbor was found dead of a gunshot wound. McAfee quickly fled Belize after being sought for questioning by Belizian authorities concerning the murder. He was subsequently arrested for illegally entering Guatemala. McAfee shortly thereafter faked two heart attacks in order to avoid deportation to Belize, and was successfully deported to the United States. In early 2019, McAfee announced that he was on the run from federal authorities and living internationally on a boat following the convening of a Grand Jury to indict him, his wife, and four of his 2020 Presidential campaign workers on tax-related charges. This past ...

Rev. Fred Lane: When in Rome, DON'T Do As The Romans Do

Rev. Fred Lane (c. 19??) is a simultaneously enigmatic and notorious persona who is responsible for creating what is arguably the most obscure, strange, darkly comedic, psychotic, perplexing, and uniquely American music that has ever been recorded. The collected works of Fred Lane constitute an improbably rare body of music that brazenly rides the line between order and chaos; taking the listener into realms that are all the way out, and yet somehow oddly (and perhaps unsettlingly) familiar. It is a music that is impossible to penetrate the mystery of and exists outside of conventional time in a universe all of its own. The intrepid few that miraculously stumbled across these rarefied recordings have largely become rabid & cult-like fanatics. One especially obsessive lifelong fan even created a Rev. Fred Lane documentary that took over 19 years to complete. Remarkably, Fred Lane and his swinging ‘pataphysical cult from an alternate dimension (SEE: Ron ‘Pate’s Debonairs featuring Rev. Fred Lane + Fred Lane and his The Hittite Hot Shots) only performed TWICE in their entire existence. All of the band members were credited on the albums with fake aliases created by Lane, with monikers such as Dick Foote, Omar Bhag-dad-a, Dimples LaCroix, Ron ‘Pate, Abdul Ben Camel, Cyd Cherise, Shep Estrus, E. Baxter Put, Whitey Stencil, “Bill” The Kid Dap, and Motor Hobson. Several bizarre and fantastical rumors surfaced over the years, some claiming that Lane had become a demented recluse and/or nazi living in a pyramid and constructing sculptures out of vegetables. Were any of the rumors true? Was it all some kind of elaborate ruse? Probing deeper into the story of Rev. Fred Lane, one discovers that the character ...

Shaun Partridge: Fun Is The Law

Shaun Partridge (“hatched” c. 1968) aka The Partridge in the Pear Tree is a writer, visual & recording artist, prankster, and co-founder of The Partridge Family Temple (aka “PFT!”). PFT! was created in 1988 as a bonafide religion devoted to the philosophy of absolute 24/7 fun (“Fun is the Law”). In short, the religion is based on the concept that the characters of the original The Partridge Family TV show are not mere fictional personae, but in fact are human incarnations of ancient archetypal deities (Danny represents Loki the trickster god, Shirley is the virgin mother/“Earth Goddess”, Laurie is the Holy Whore of Babylon, Tracy is the virgin nymph, Keith is the saytr-like god of war and sex, etc.), and television itself represents the almighty Yahweh. Other notable lifelong PFT! worshipers and devotees include Whale Song Partridge, Reverend Dan “Point me in the Direction of Albequerque” Partridge, K is for Kaleidoscope Partridge, 7Up Partridge, Boyd Partridge, Giddle “C’mon Get Happy” Partridge, and the late Lorin Partridge. Shaun holds the belief that EVERYONE is a defacto member of PFT! even if they aren’t yet aware of it (making them/us the largest and most widespread organized religion in the world). In 2004, Shaun co-founded an alchemical art movement known as UNPOP ART which defined itself as “The application of pop aesthetics, stylings, or techniques to unpopular, unpleasant, repressed or otherwise censored ideas.” According to writer Brian M. Clark, “UNPOP ART juxtaposed the explicitly profane and overtly offensive with the fun, whimsical and lighthearted. Attempting to render racism, sexism, intolerance, disability, disease, rape, genocide, suicide, terrorism, hatred and war ‘fun,’ UNPOP ART (predictably) received little welcome from either the art world or ...
