Carl Cryplant's Drug Music Vol 2


Hey Frank,

Long time no see. I was on the corner of Rue du Ch√Ęteau and Place de l'Eglise trying to find some brown dust when this old hag appeared wanting to sell me some of those mushrooms again I lived on for se7en days in a row last time. Since you weren't too wild about my ramblings them, I declined. When the hag left I noticed a small guy hidden under her blue-gray tarpaulin coat. He stuck his dirty face from under it and I could see a pair of bright green eyes almost like rays of light. The most peculiar however was the hole in his head.

In a thriftshop I found this kind of auger corkscrew thing which I though was safer than an electric drill. Its main feature was a metal spike, surrounded by a ring of saw-teeth. The first attempt was a fiasco because the needles I used to administer the local anaesthetic proved to be too thin and broke. So I bought some stouter ones and took a tab of LSD to steady my nerves. First I made an incision to the bone and applied the improvised trepan to my bared skull. Driving the spike into the bone however proved impossible. The next day I made a kind of tourniquet with some bandages and a piece of wood. I managed to press the trepan against my skull and started cranking the saw. I took another tab of LSD, and after a long time of sawing just as I was about to break through, I fainted. The next couple of days I felt so embarrassed because although it looked as if I had managed to trepane myself I actually failed to do so.

I prepared for a third and final attempt. With the benefit of experience, I found the groove of my previous operation and again I began to saw through the sliver of bone separating me from enlightenment. After some time there was an ominous sounding schlurp and the sound of bubbling. I pulled the trepan out and there was a bit of bone in it, at last! A great gush of blood followed, and in the mirror I could see the blood in the hole rising and falling with the pulsation of my brain. During the next hours I felt my spirits rising and I reached a state of peace, freedom and serenity which has been with me ever since.

Apart from my improvised trepan I had nothing but two turntables and a microphone, cassette players and a synthesizer to assist and comfort me, so I recorded my experience into a podcast. Since I'm no good with computers and all that digital stuff I poured it into 44' 44" so you can put it on a good old trustworthy C-90 audio cassette and pop it in your walkman.

Your Pal,

Carl Cryplant the Enlightened.
