Danger originally appears on the 1969 album How Can You Be in Two Places at Once When You're Not Anywhere at All, and is reprised in the 1979 Nick Danger: The Case of the Missing Shoe, 1984 The Three Faces of Al, and 2001 The Bride of Firesign. He’s based on the Hammett Sam Spade character, but as I got more into writing him over the years, he’s become much more like Marlowe. The Firesign Theatre (also known as The Firesigns) was an American surreal comedy group who first performed live on November 17, 1966 on the Los Angeles radio program Radio Free Oz, first on station KPFK FM, then on KRLA 1110 AM, then on KMET FM through February 1969. They produced fourteen record albums and a 45 rpm single under contract to.

Their 1969 follow-up, How Can You Be Two Places at Once When You're Not Anywhere at All?, featured the first appearance of Nick Danger, their popular parody of Sam Spade and hardboiled crime fiction. With 1970's Don't Crush That Dwarf, Hand Me the Pliers, Firesign perfected the formula, offering a fragmentary, cut-and-paste set of mock news broadcasts and radio drama satires. The Firesign Theatre continued performing into the 21st century, including 2002 appearances on NPR's All Things Considered compiled on the 2003 Artemis label release All Things Firesign. Founding member Peter Bergman died in March 2012 after a bout with leukemia; the other Theatre members planned a "Big Brouhaha" in tribute to Bergman the following month in Seattle. Phil Austin died from an aneurysm in June 2015.

The Firesign Theatre produced three more Columbia studio albums from 1969 to 1971: How Can You Be in Two Places at Once When You're Not Anywhere at All; Don't Crush That Dwarf, Hand Me the Pliers; and I Think We're All Bozos On This Bus. Each grew technically more sophisticated, taking advantage of more tape tracks and Dolby noise reduction. Sure enough, when we kicked the fascists out of office it was time for the Firesign Theatre to come back. Following the 1992 presidential election, and with Ossman back in the group, the Firesign Theatre reunited in 1993 for a 25th anniversary reunion tour around the US, Back From the Shadows, starting on April 24 in Seattle with an audience of 2,900. The tour, consisting of live performances of material from their first four Golden Age albums (Electrician, Two.

If you could transport yourself back to a college dormitory, chances are good that many of the rooms would contain at least one Firesign Theatre album. With records like How Can You Be Two Places At Once When You're Not Anywhere At All (1969), Don't Crush That Dwarf, Hand Me The Pliers (1970), and I Think We're All Bozos On This Bus (1971), David Ossman, Philip Austin, Philip Proctor, and Peter Bergman created a multi-layered "stream of comedy" approach.

Where are you from?" a character at one point asks Babe, the hapless protagonist of the Firesign Theatre's classic comedy album How Can You Be in Two Places at Once When You're Not Anywhere at All. "Nairobi, ma'am," Babe replies. Isn't everybody?" Like most of that psychedelic radio troupe's pieces of apparent nonsense, that memorable line contains a truth: trace human history back far enough and you inevitably end up in east Africa, a point illustrated in reverse by the video above, "A History of the World: Every Year," which. You can skip to the end and leave a response. Pinging is currently not allowed. FakeHistory says: January 12, 2018 at 5:48 am. Whoever made this erased the Ottoman and Persian empire.
