- WHO AM THEY, ANYWAY?:
The Firesign Theatre: That Fab 4 or 5 that has been bending our
minds and funny bones since the mid '60s. Their latest releases (Give
Me Immortality or Give Me Death, Boom Dot Bust and The Bride of
Firesign - a trilogy or sorts) are among their best works, proving they
have spanned generations with timeless wit and surreal intellect.
The Firesign Theatre (FST) first became widely known in 1966 at
L.A.'s listener-supported KPFK (where Austin and Ossman were on
staff), and when Proctor came West with the musical The Amorous
Flea they started performing together on Peter "The Wiz" Bergman's
Radio Free Oz, rapidly evolving from doing put-ons and live original
half-hour comic plays before ecstatic crowds into the multi-media
production and performance entity we know today.
