I notice this book is English. Certainly, there is more than a whiff of legendary Limey eccentricity about this. A surfeit, in fact.
Avatar Wed. 12/10/14 3:22pm Sem Chumbo:

...Carefully insert a finger or medical (non-musical) instrument into the nasal cavity. The opening is quite narrow but about 2 metres in it opens out into a larger chamber. Here you will encounter a marsupial called Zimbardo, who guards the entrance to the brain. You will not be able to pass him unless you agree to a wrestling match (Blavatsky rules). Let him win. Once you have access to the brain you will see that its interior resembles bubble wrap. Use your finger/instrument to pop as many of these 'think pockets' as you feel is appropriate. If the subject begins to gurgle or talk backwards, immediately exit the brain via the nostril, ensuring that you take any litter with you...

With all of the bloody time I spent listening to and obsessing over Ween (in the 90s), you would think someone would have suggested that I check out R. Stevie Moore, but that was not the case. Just an observation.
  Wed. 12/10/14 3:33pm Dean:

That's Peter Gabriel...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/10/14 3:33pm Irwin:

UK comedian Charlie Drake (1925 - 2006) released this odd single in 1975, featuring an unexpected array of musicians including Phil Collins, Robert Fripp, Keith Tippett, Sandy Denny and Peter Gabriel, who produced and co-wrote the song! A contemporary promo sheet also lists Brian Eno as a player. An unusual aspect of the career of all involved. Phil Collins explained the recording on his website:

""It did indeed feature Robert Fripp, Percy Jones, Keith Tippett, me and Peter G. A friend of Pete's, Martin Hall wrote the song, or possibly co-wrote it with Peter, called You Never Know. Apparently Charlie Drake, who was a huge comedy star of the 50s and 60s, wanted to make a record. How he ended up with this line-up I have no idea! It seems the most obscure set of people to make a comedy record. On the day Charlie, who was quite small, turned up with a brand new denim outfit for his rock debut... it was quite touching to see him at it. Percy Jones and I were already in Brand X by then. The whole session was one of life's interesting snapshots!""
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/10/14 3:34pm Irwin:

I didn't write that ^. Taken off some blog.
  Wed. 12/10/14 3:35pm Dean:

One of my favorite obscure Genesis tracks. Also, Burning Shed recently compiled the Charisma Brand X recordings, including a couple previously unreleased tracks. Real nice.

  Wed. 12/10/14 3:38pm Dean:

Phil Collins, who sang a track or two for Cafe Jacques, thinks Charlie Drake's line-up is obscure?

I'm LOL at this, causing me to cough from whatever they sprayed for the bedbugs.

The funny thing is, keeping with the theme of that sketch, that I don't know whether the diagnosis of bedbugs was even correct!

I am sure that there's something really raunchy about this song but I can't quite place it.

No Lee Morgan on that Mobley track. No Lee Morgan on the album. No trumpet on the track. Had pulled out another Mobley album with Lee, but didn't play it. Hence, my confusion—contributing to yours.
