One thing one couldn't accuse Peter Cook and Dudley Moore of being, are stooges for the state's anti-subversive operations.
There were obvious aspects of Psychedelic culture that were easy targets, and the silly drug mythology was certainly one of them. I'm sure also that Cook and Moore were not aversed to indulging in these drugs themselves,at least when they weren't totally arseholed on the booze....which is certainly what did for Cook in the end.
These forgotten comedy legends do a perfect job here, walking the thin line between satire and propaganda. In fact a lot of the dumber members of the public were certain this was made by The Beatles in cognito, which it was intended to sound like,so this stupid assumption was not totally misunderstandable; actually its a lot better than most of the Fab Four's psychedelic output.
A lot of the same people also thought that The Residents were The Beatles too.....the same for 'Klaatu' also!!!!.....if anyone can think of anymore secret Beatles projects,feel free to inform us for ,we, the amusement, there of,would be grateful.
