FST Group PhotoFiresign Theatre rekindles its comedy

"Nick Danger, Third Eye." "He's no fun, he fell right over."

If these phrases blow the dust off your memory cells, you probably wore out a few record grooves listening to the satirical skits of Firesign Theatre in the '60s and '70s.

The four-man comedy troupe is recording again as a team for the first time in 15 years.

Coming Sept. 1 from Rhino Records: "Give Me Immortality or Give Me Death," about a broadcast on RadioNow during the last 12 hours of the year 1999. "This is a legit Firesign Theatre record," promises Phil Proctor, 57. "We had our lives in enough order that we said, 'Let's do it again,' says Proctor of reuniting with Peter Bergman, David Ossman and Phil Austin. We are like the Rolling Stones, still cranking out the rock'n'roll."
