Boom Dot Bust (Rhino)
Reviewed by Shaun
The infernal machine at my elbow has decoded the data on this shiny,
shiny, shiny piece of plastic a couple dozen times now, transmitting
waves of moving molecules toward the infernal organics in my skull.
Those organics have had considerably more trouble decoding the data in
those moving molecules, though, which in the world of the 4 or 5 crazee
guys that make up the Firesign Theatre is a very good thing.
Whether it's a kung-fu Citizen Kane, an exorcist's infomercial or a
conference call on the mayor's phone (ring, ring, ring!), there's
something to please every Bill and frighten every Elmer on this one.
The Firegods have spawned a bunch of new characters and put them in a
bunch of settings that often seem only tangentially connected, until,
of course, repeated doses expose the seams that hold it all together.
The easy thing to do, of course, would have been a follow-up to their
Grammy nominated Rhino debut, Give Me Liberty Or Give Me Death. But it
would have been wrong. The Firesign Theatre bravely chose to do right,
and to do it right. The result is as inexplicable as it is hilarious.
Get one for your very own infernal machine as soon as possible. It's
not only shiny, shiny, shiny, but funny, funny, funny.
