Although The Song Is An Instrumental, The Threat (One Of These Days, I'm Going To Cut You Into Little Pieces), A Rare Vocal Contribution By Drummer Nick Mason Was Recorded Through A Ring Modulator And Slowed Down To Create An Eerie Effect. It Was Aimed At Sir Jimmy Young, The Then BBC Radio 1 And Radio 2 DJ Whom Pink Floyd Supposedly Disliked Because Of His Tendency To Babble. During The Early 1970's Concerts, The Floyd Somethings Played A Sound Collage Of Clips From Young's Radio Show That Was Edited To Sound Completely Nonsensical, Thus Figuratively "Cutting Him Into Little Pieces".

As the announcer on a bootleg Pink Floyd concert album (Live on Westwood one, I think) put it "Is described by Roger Waters as a poignant appraisal of the contemporary social situation. Make what you will of that."

The song was giong to be part of a film soundtrack and the film ended up being a flop and discarted. It was a slasher film and I think it was about a real event.
