    General CommentThis is a lot like Interstellar Overdrive, except much, much better. It is almost 11 minutes long, and features Nick Mason setting the tone with drums (does the opening remind anybody of White Rabbit), with Syd (?) doing crazy stuff on his guitar.
    Whoever said that Interstellar Overdrive was THE psychadelic rock song has obviously never listened to this one.

    General CommentI think I need to start commenting on this song once a day, until people start paying attention to it.

    Listen to this song over headphones while lying in bed, preferably in the middle of the night (3:00 A.M. or so). It greatly heightens the experience.

    General CommentThat song was featured in a movie called "Tonight Let's All Make Love In London"; it was released on various bootlegs and a rare EP (the soundtrack to the film). The EP features a long version (16 minutes, I think) of Interstellar Overdrive on the first side and Nick's Boogie on the other.
    "Nick" is Nick Mason.

    General CommentThis song is still better than the 16 minute version of Interstellar Overdrive (though that one was better than the original).

    General Commentslight correction for clarification to your bracket inpraiseoffolly: the "London 67" "Interstellar Overdrive" (of which was referred with "Tonight Let's All Make Love in London" aka "London 67") predates that of the one on Piper's at the Gate of Dawn and thus is the original.

    All the same, the song "Nick's Boogie" does have a meaning, as i think he was around with Bob Klose, making him one of the few remaining members to make it through today, and as a foundation member wanted to set the pace as with what the band was becoming, thus two songs with one being done by Mason with the other being a Syd tune.

    Watch "Live at Pompeii" do get a great Nick Mason show durring "One of these Days (I'm going to cut you into little pieces)"
