#229: Another One Bites The Dust
Authors David Oates and Greg Albrecht use cutting edge methods of examination (usually manually turning a record backwards, transferring music to reel-to-reels and splicing cassettes) to prove their point and prove it they will, no matter how much they have to bend the truth or distort facts, and their point is a simple one: much like Elvis, the devil is everywhere. The devil is in tapioca pudding! The devil is in Deep Purple songs. The devil is in Mrs Jones. Oates boasts that, at the time, he had a ‘strong interest in alternate living’, which, in the mid ‘80s was another phrase for ‘long-term unemployed with an aversion to soap’ and Albrecht was a secondary school teacher specialising in English and Christian Studies. We all had a teacher like that in high school; I had one in year ten who was convinced that UFOs had visited him one evening after he’d dropped a few mushrooms and toked some smoke and had given him the meaning of life and the universe. This was something he couldn’t share, but he knew all too well that bloody bureaucrats were out to get him. We used to fuck with his head by letting the air out of his car tyres and telling him that black cars with the windows tinted over were following us home every evening.
David Oates, the self proclaimed "...founder and developer of Reverse Speech technologies", its books and research like this that, “…got him into trouble with the CIA and FBI in the U.S.”(yes, he has a web-page, go and visit it, it's chock full of fun and jocularity). I’m not surprised as he and co-author Greg Albrecht, both attack and out Rin Tin-Tin, Bugs Bunny and Daniel Boone as Satanists amongst other sacred bovines. The Partridge Family love Lucifer, as does The Lone Ranger But then nobody escapes Oates and Albrecht’s withering gaze, including themselves and their families. To illustrate examples of backwards speaking in normal, everyday life, the authors taped a number of everyday situations and then played them backwards. These include Oates’s attempts to give up the darts and, in a stunning piece of literature that has to be read to be believed, they taped the birth of their own twins, reversed the tape and analysed the playback of conversations between Oates and obviously pissed off nurse. Ian Sinclair, Joh Bjelke Petersen, John Howard and Bob Hawke are revealed as backwards speaking devil worshippers. Yes, this book just gets better the more you read it.
Personally I think all the backwards messages might have been the voices in their heads. After all anyone can create their own 'facts' to 'prove' their point, no matter how error riddled they might be. "And I said, 'Hello sweet Satan, I think it's time to go'"...
