The Mighty Boosh Cast

As Vince and Howard argue over which music is best - Jazz or the Human League - they meet two Electro girls, Neon and Ultra, who offer Vince the chance to front their band, ‘Kraftwork Orange'. Vince happily accepts, and ignores Howard’s warnings of the problems fame will bring him, even after Howard reveals that he once had fame as a musical genius, after selling his soul to the Spirit of Jazz (a.k.a. Uncle Mario) so that he could become a brilliant trumpeter. Vince attends a practice session in the aquarium with Neon, Ultra and their keyboard player Johnny Two Hats; unfortunately he upsets Johnny, who storms off, taking his music and instruments with him. With the band due to play at an important gig that night, where the head of Pieface Records will be in the audience, the girls threaten to cut up Vince unless he fixes things. In desperation Vince asks Howard to play with them; Howard reluctantly accepts – but this unleashes the evil Spirit of Jazz, who tries to take over Howard’s body. Luckily Naboo manages to trap the spirit inside a vacuum cleaner, leaving the band free to play at the gig. However, during their set the Spirit of Jazz manages to propel his vacuum cleaner to the nightclub; he immediacy possesses Howard, making a spectacle of him in front of the assembled crowd…
