This thread title has a certain "That will Americana for humbug" about it.
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

That phrase has lost none of its cryptic brilliance for me. A pity that it was formed by a nasty shitweasel, but it's still a beautiful and self-contained bit of wonder.

Remind me of the origins. Wasn't it a typo?

Back up a few posts from the link, but it was me arguing with our resident anti-semitic Scot about, of all things, Paul McCartney's hideous Christmas song and he responded with some Thought Police inanity and that marvellous and confusing phrase.

And it got no reaction at the time.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

That's the other funny thing. I can only assume that I was numb to his gibberish and it wasn't until someone else—Flex or eumaas, I think—pointed out the mystic power of the words.

He loved invoking the Thought Police, didn't he?
Got a Rake? Sure!

For such a rotten person, he did gift us with two memorable phrases. Dung does indeed make good fertilizer.
