The Mighty Boosh Cast

While listening to a record Howard hears a voice inside his head, a visit from the sinister Spirit of Jazz; but Vince is more interested in the new single he and his band have just released, entitled ‘A Monkey Stole My Face’. Meanwhile, Bob Fossil gets beaten up by one of Harry the mobster’s thugs, as an incentive to find the money he owes him. Bob decides to hold a Porpoise Derby, fixing the race by getting Howard to ride Mr Ferguson; however, during the contest, Howard gets distracted by the Spirit of Jazz, and ends up nearly drowning instead. Bob is furious at losing more money, but then sees another opportunity after learning that Vince and his band are taking part in the ‘New Faces of Pop’ competition. Unfortunately, Vince has upset the guitarist, who has quit the band in a fit of pique; desperate for a replacement musician, Vince manages to talk Howard into playing at their gig. But when the band begins their session, Howard becomes possessed by the spirit of Jazz, and he freaks out on stage…
