New for 2021: The Firesign Theatre Live at the Magic Mushroom - Paperback Book + DVD-ROM Disc!!

Firesign Audio

DukeOfMadnessMotors   Firesign Theatre
The Firesign Theatre Live at the Magic Mushroom
Paperback Book + DVD-ROM Disc

NEW! In psychedelic 1967, between their first and second albums, Firesign wrote a dozen original half-hour radio plays in full Goon Show mode, with puns on overdrive. They performed them in front of a live audience at the Magic Mushroom club on Ventura Blvd. in Los Angeles, while being simulcast on Peter Bergman's Radio Free Oz on 50,000-watt KRLA. Considered lost for half a century, these mythical broadcasts are finally being officially released from the best available recordings, fully remastered and with historical appreciations from original members of Firesign and their archivist. So break off a hunk of the old 'shroom! It's like having the Sixties in the palm of your mind...

48-page paperback book with DVD-ROM, including all 11 of the surviving Magic Mushroom plays, plus original promos and the 10/29/1967 episode of Radio Free Oz ("The Bridey Murphy Come As You Were Halloween Party"). Remastered audio, never-before-published photos and ephemera from the archives, and brand new illustrations by Mahendra Singh!

Fighting Clowns of Hollywood
Seven hours of live Firesign Theatre
Most never before released
80-page supplemental PDF

You're On the Airlie: A History of the Art of Radio, written and performed exclusively for the Airlie public radio conference in Virginia on 4/22/1979. Revisit radio's greatest moments –The Egyptians invent the wireless society! FDR reads the funnies by the fire! And the glorious Hindenberg lands safely in New Jersey!

Joey's House: a channel-switching fantasia featuring Joey Demographico and his family watching (and making) a full day of TV. Yves Sanstoul goes up against American celebrity fashionistas, Bosun Bob teaches the kiddies to draw a dead cat, Nick Danger stars in "Frame Me Pretty", and the whole household shills for God on "Pay the Lord".

Fighting Clowns: The complete 1980 album based on their Roxy stage show. Firesign goes into full Brecht mode as they rip hell out of America's presidential candidates in The Year The Brain Stood Still. Songs galore! Plus a slew of bonus tracks including the never-released "Meanwhile in Billville", their one-act play about the town fathers who put drugs in the milk so their kids could take home the gold at the Billville Alternate Olympics (an idea they later stole from themselves to form the kernel of their 1999 CD Boom Dot Bust)!

American Pageant 1981: Live on tour in the first months of the Reagan administration, Firesign unpacks and re-builds their "American Pageant" piece from 1969's How Can You Be album, taking it down new roads never travelled in the original. Featuring those classic new old folk songs "The Four John Browns", "No One Came Marching Home" and "Dropping Those Bombs Again".

By the Light of the Silvery: Firesign reprises their classic 1967 Magic Mushroom play at the Sherlock Holmes fan convention Sherlockon in Los Angeles, 1/24/1981. Hemlock Stones and Batson return from chasing the Giant Rat of Sumatra only to face a new, more challenging plot – the moon has disappeared!

Lawyer's Hospital: In 1981 Firesign captured two killer live performances on tape, one in Denver and one in San Francisco, that formed the backbone of the 1982 Rhino LP Lawyer's Hospital. Featuring the soap opera of the same name, singing group The Eight Shoes, and TV matinee host Ben Bland, this expanded version includes all the live material from the LP plus much more from the original tapes.

And there are more extras, including bits rescued from the only known recording of their 1979 live show "The Owl & Octopus Show" and Firesign radio appearances from their 1981 tour. Meanwhile the included PDF features 80 pages of photos, posters, drawings, LP artwork, liner notes, articles, interviews, and more.

Fighting Clowns of Hollywood: Live 1979-1981 is available exclusively from Firesign's store on Bandcamp. A 9-track, 34-minute free promo album and promotional JPGs are available for download now from this link.

Just Folks: A Firesign Chat

It is January, 1977. James Earl (Jimmy) Carter has been elected, and he will soon be sworn in as the 39th President of the United States. The Firesign Theatre (fresh off their own Surrealist Party Campoon) takes on the task of welcoming the new President and introducing him to the residents of his new home, Ducktown, USA, which is inhabited by the usual unusual Firesign characters, from drunkards to truckers, and from TV hosts to rocket scientists. Plus, the occasional Indian is passed around for good measure.

2017 remastered version includes 18-page PDF with original album artwork, press kit, news articles, live performance photos & more.

Duke Of Madness Motors:
The Complete "Dear Friends" Radio Era 1970-1972
Paperback Book + DVD-ROM Disc

NEW! It's been such a long exposition, you know. Countless hours spent poring through the personal archives of Firesign group members and devoted fans alike. Fragile, aging reel-to-reel tapes handled with great care and transferred to digital media for restoration. Information and images gathered, processed and refined. Interviews conducted, transcribed and edited. The whole enchilada cubed, reheated, inspected, injected, detected, filtered, digitized, edited and assembled to perfection.

Yes, thanks to the tireless efforts of official Firesign archivist Taylor Jessen, we are proud to present, for the first time anywhere, the complete, mammoth, authoritatively definitive and totally awesome Duke of Madness Motors: The Complete "Dear Friends" Radio Era 1970-1972 book and DVD-ROM combo pack.

  • The Firesign Theatre Radio Hour Hour (24 episodes)
  • Dear Friends (21 episodes) and
  • Let's Eat (12 episodes)
...ending with their big final blockbuster, Martian Space Party. A total of 58 shows in all, 80 hours of audio, on a single DVD-ROM disc. Each broadcast is completely restored and remastered for your protection. There's also the syndicated versions of the Dear Friends and Let's Eat episodes, and a handful of additional goodies and surprises from the vaults.

This is indeed the cultural landslide of a lifetime, more pure unadulterated Firesign than has ever been available in a single package. You'll revel in the lightning-fast word play, bon mots, sparkling repartee, inside jokes, jokey insights, non-sequitors, surreal flights of fancy, bizarre sound effects, social studies, poetic justice, and downright jaw dropping serendipitous synchronicity that this landmark institution of comedy managed to pull off from out of left field in a mere two-year period. Don't miss out on this once in a lifetime opportunity to own and experience this cornucopia of creamy Firesign goodness.

FightingClowns   Firesign Theatre:
Fighting Clowns

Wow, fer sher, totally, whatever! It's the start of the Reagan era Contra-temps, and the 101st Fighting Clown battalion brigade wants you! This album combines Firesign's full-frontal live "Eight Shoes" vaudeville-style song & revue show with additional studio segments, captured just as the Sappy Seventies gave way to the belligerent and self-satisfied Empty Eighties. War is the answer, but what was the question? Just stare at the incredible Phil Hartman (yes, that Phil Hartman) cover art and maybe you, too, will remember. Includes the songs "Oh, Afghanistan" and "This Bus Won't Go to War".

Anythynge You Want To

The casual Firehead may not know that today's fab Firesign is merely the latest incarnation of a writing/acting troupe that's been bringing avant-garde laffs to the swells since 1600! From the nethermost regions of their traveling trunk, the Fyre Sygne Theatre unearthed this, the oldest script in their repertoire, to record for NPR in 1980. Knock your lobes to the Bard-basting play that had Elizabethan, Jacobean, and Coffeebean audiences alyke in stitches. This CD features the full NPR Earplay version of Anythynge, complete with wraparounds. (Also of note: the companion Anythynge You Want To book, available here in the Firesale store!)
