BACKGROUND:
Firesign Theatre, the legendary and still revolutionary satirical comedy troupe, earned a Grammy nomination in early '99 for Give Me Immortality Or Give Me Death, the first album of all new material featuring the original foursome in more than 15 years. That October, the reinvigorated lunatics (PHIL AUSTIN, PETER BERGMAN, DAVID OSSMAN, and PHIL PROCTOR) followed up their triumphant return with the all-new BOOM DOT BUST album, a hilarious send-up of small-town America. The outrageous new characters (the Bills, Elmers, No-Neckers, and other inbred locals from Billville and Elmertown) live a lot closer to home than you think. With its dead-on social satire, topical humor, original music, sound effects, and lots more, BOOM DOT BUST has joined its Firesign predecessors as an American comedy classic. Now the DVD Audio version packs the entire album and lots of new content, creating a truly outrageous multi-media experience.
