I love the blood-curdling scream in the middle {#Eek}
My oldest son had a college roommate named Eugene.  When I found out the kid's name, I told my son, "just make sure he's careful with the axe."  To my delight, both boys got the reference.
Syd was long gone from the Floyd (and the realm of sanity) before this track was ever recorded and had nothing to do with it.

Resurrected as Come In Number 51, Your Time Is Up for the soundtrack to Michelangelo Antonioni's Zabriskie Point.


Chester Crill, the singer, violinist, and keyboard player for Kaleidoscope, remembers all too well the preview screening at which he saw Zabriskie Point. "When it was over," he says, "there wasn't a person who left that was looking anyone else in the eye. It was the most embarrassing thing that I'd ever been to. Everybody just slunk away."

Very true, that. After a protracted siege to get a date with Mormon Debbie K. (whose boyfriend was off on his mission), I took her to see this flick somewhere on the U of W Madison campus. What a mistake! It left me speechless; I was totally embarrassed by the completely disjointed quality of the film and embarrassed that I squandered my one any only shot with Debbie on this POS.
Syd, tortured genius, scares the crap out of me with this one.
Be careful with those drugs Syd, vegetable land awaits you!
