Everything You Know Is Wrong is the eighth comedy album by the Firesign Theatre. Released in October 1974 on Columbia Records, it satirizes UFO conspiracy theories and New Age paranormal beliefs such as Erich von Däniken's Chariots of the Gods and claimed psychic Uri Geller, which achieved wide public attention by that time.
After a few albums of somewhat lacking material, the Firesigns pulled it together with Everything You Know Is Wrong, an album that sounds like the blueprint for The X-Files, Church of the Subgenius, and every other conspiracy theory you can think of. Funniest of all is "Army Training Film," but most of the rest of the album holds its own quite nicely. A swell return to form, and especially recommended for the paranoid.
This is the Rodney Dangerfield of Firesign Theatre albums-it don't get no respect. If you were to ask any ten FST fans to list the group's best albums, it's unlikely that any of them would include "Everything You Know is Wrong. Yet, to my mind, it's the one that has held up the best over time. With the possible exception of some thinly-veiled references to Carlos Castaneda's "Don Juan" books, there is nothing here that isn't as relevant or funny now as it was when the album was released
The Firesign Theatre is an LP Comedy Group from the 60s to present. They use an eclectic but not documented (or purposely vaguely documented) approach to their resources and sometimes it's from an obscure source, familiar, but not cited. This piece is the theme music to Bob Hind's Travelogue sketch. It is Scandinavian in character, sounding a bit like something from Grieg, but I can't ID it at all from the Firesign Theatre published resources.
