My GOD!! This RECORD"S TRYING TO KILL ME!!!
Don't Crush That Dwarf, Hand Me The Pliers buy CD music I used to listen to this album as a kid in the mid-Seventies. Don't Crush That Dwarf, Hand Me The Pliers songs I purchased it last weekend for nostalgia's sake and have listened to it every day since, on the way to work. Don't Crush That Dwarf, Hand Me The Pliers album for sale I am just blown away by this CD. Here's my take: George Leroy Tirebiter sees his life flash before him in not so chronological order, through the media of television. In reality, Tirebiter "sold out" as a draft dodger and was persecuted by his(Step?) Father and labeled a Commie. He ends up going to war despite his efforts to evade the draft and at the rank of lieutenant, "sold out" as a conscientious objector and is given a dishonorable discharge. Later as a civilian, he becomes involved with the entertainment business and "sells out" to big business for the almighty dollar. Now on his death bed Tirebiter is in and out of a coherent atate as someone switches channels on the TV in his hospital room. Each commercial, game show, movie, political ad or TV Evangelist is absorbed into his subconscious state and relates to how he lived his life. The CD takes you through this riotous cacophony of half-dream and Tirebiter's search to "GET OUT" In the final minutes, Tirebiter slips away, remembering old collegues and reverts to childhood as he chases after an ice cream truck into the "great beyond" Just one person's interpretation of an exceptionally bright and classic piece of American comedy. Kudos FST!

FABULOUS COMEDY FROM THE 70s
Don't Crush That Dwarf, Hand Me The Pliers CD music Before CHEECH AND CHONG there was the fast paced, head splitting comedy of THE FIRESIGN THEATRE. Very hard to believe it was issued in 1970!!!! These lads were way ahead of the times and this album is one of a few they issued in the 70s and is worth adding to your CD collection.

A Warped Alternitive Universe That You Can Listen To
Don't Crush That Dwarf, Hand Me The Pliers buy CD music Not sure where to begin your Firesign Theatre collection. Look no further! Start here, and be sucked in a world that you will enjoy, and enjoy, over, and over again! Recording focuses on the life of Harry Tirebitter, his movies, and his life are one in the same. Follow his career from early B movies to forgotten Hollywood star in retirement. A warped sense of history, and refences to an America consumed by television, consumerism, Communism, and both sides of the big ditch pressing the button at the same time. Dark, sarcastic, poke at the American way of life, and how it treats it's Hollywood stars. A comedy that must be heard.
