The best of the recent Firesign releases,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Bride Of Firesign (Audio CD)
Over their thirty-year plus recording career, the Firesigns have managed to accumulate a large repertoire of in-jokes and self-referential material. That material is put to good use on this record, which is framed by an extended Nick Danger "story."
You have computerized truck drivers, driving on the information superhighway --- an updated version of the -Bozos On This Bus- imagery. You have a political campaign between Inspector Bradshaw and Rocky Rococo. And lots and lots of Canadians. This is perhaps their densest and most topical record of their last three, and goes the furthest, in what's left of my mind, towards recapturing the magic of their classic albums of the Seventies.
