Show Notes

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 personal tales as well as intensely bold/lurid photographs, letters, graphics, and illustrations—function as part memoir and part audio archive documenting his sundry musical releases spanning over three decades (each book contains four full-length CDs). The varied musings, rumblings, and howlings of a nomadic outsider—the kind which only this strange, beautiful, and high-stakes gamble of a country/empire can seemingly produce.

One of the primary subjects that run through the series is the occult initiatory organization known as REDACTED; a satanic Crowleyan deep state government. One of the main organizations that NN believes to be REDACTED (the other being the REDACTED). NN currently resides in a secluded compound somewhere in upstate New York. Buckle up and prepare to go over the edge of sobriety and sanity itself. . .

Benjamin Bennett: Smile Through The Pain Until The Pain Makes You Smile

“Every calamity is to be overcome by endurance.” -Virgil “Endurance is more important than truth..." -Charles Bukowski Ben Bennett (c.1984) is a unique, virtuosic free improvising percussionist who rose to international prominence and notoriety in 2014. After creating a series of live-streamed internet videos, in which he sat cross-legged and gazed into a camera all while maintaining a ceaseless grin upon his face for four hour durations, Ben joined the ranks of weird YouTube celebritydom. In 2017, after creating 300 episodes of “Sitting and Smiling,” he inexplicably began a new series entitled “Walking and Talking,” in which he walks and talks (often self-reflexively) on camera, typically also for four hours at a time. Ben is the son of American experimental text, sound, and visual poet John M. Bennett and brother of composer/performer John Also Bennett. Additionally, he is also a highly skilled urban forager, survivalist, and as we discover towards the conclusion of this episode, something of a freestyle rapper. Join us for this episode of THE EXILE HOUR in which we engage Ben in a fast & furious dialogue about the nature of post-human consciousness, endurance art, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, conspiracy theories, and suicidal selfie sticks. ...

John Trubee: Sardonic Bard & Experimental Landline Jester

Leader of the music group The Ugly Janitors of America, John Trubee has given his life to entertain the unwashed masses by way of recorded music, prank phone calls, poems, cartoons, and evocative performances.  Best known for creating the most famous song poem of all time, the 1984 novelty track "Peace & Love" (more commonly known as "A Blind Man’s Penis"), recorded by Ramsey Kearney. The country-western track penned by Trubee is one of the most deranaged dada/surrealist recordings of all time.  The Ugly Janitors of America, Trubee released the cult favorite 1984 album The Communists Are Coming to Kill Us! which contains prank calls, vile noises, and experimental jams. The record is disturbing, hilarious, and thought provoking all at once. Trubee's crank calls are perhaps the most influential avant-garde phone pranks to have been recorded, with Longmont Potion Castle citing Trubee as one of his biggest influences. Trubee's pioneering efforts in the genre can be found on his Call to Idiots cassettes Vol. 1 - 4. Trubee is still producing quality entertainment that can be found, and purchased, at the link below, or if you'd rather avoid the middle man, please paypal 25 USD per LP desired to johntrb09@gmail.com or write to: JOHN TRUBEEBOX 4921SANTA ROSA, CA 95402 https://johntrubeeandtheuglyjanitorsofamerica.bandcamp.com/ ...

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 ...
