THE COMMITTEE 1968
U.K. film. Soundtrack written and performed by Pink Floyd. A mod-looking Paul Jones, vocalist for Manfred Mann, stars in this surreal film that feels like Hitchcock, the Twilight Zone, and the Prisoner all combined into a very 60s British pop-psychology experiment.

Paul Jones plays a roaming young man who receives a letter informing him he has been selected to become part of a committee. Prior to receiving the letter he was a hitchhiker who decapitated the driver who gave him a rideā€”but he was kind enough to sew the head back on!

Before getting down to business in the committee, all the young members attend a party that features a wild performance by the Crazy World of Arthur Brown who enters the room wearing psychedelic robes and flaming "fire-helmet" and proceeds to sing, "Nightmare" (which was recorded at Pete Townsend's home studio).

At the party the camera pans by various odd conversations, one of which is by Peter Asher (of Peter & Gordon fame). As the committee proceeds, Paul Jones is questioned about why he cut off the man's head. Paul Jones, Jimmy Gardner, Tom Kempinski, Arthur Brown, Robert Langdon Lloyd, Pauline Munro. The Committee!
