Episode Summary

Episode 4
Ridcully is furious. It cost him $270 to get the wizards out of prison last night! They are getting more rebellious than ever. Deep in the library, The Librarian is building his mysterious machine. Dibbler tells the band that he has got them a gig at the infamous Cavern Club. This is a Troll dive run by the terrifying Chrysophase the Godfather. Glod and Cliff want out, but Buddy is now possessed by the mysterious Guitar and insists that they do the gig. Dibbler also presents them with their new road manager, Asphalt, a squashed Troll with Showbizness in his soul. Ridcully takes the captured fragment of music to the High Energy Magic Building where the boffin wizard Ponder Stibbons discovers how to trap the music and play it back. They need more of it if they are going to work out how to destroy it, so they set off for the Cavern. The Crowd are getting impatient for the boys to play. Buddy bargains with Dibbler. He'll only go on if Dibbler mounts a free festival in Hide Park. Dibbler realises that there is lots of money to be made from Free Festivals. After the gig, a Barbers Shop Quartet Hit Squad from the Musicians' Guild is waiting in the alley. Once again, Susan sees them off. Cliff and Glod are frightened by the Guitar. They're scared of the way it has possessed Buddy, and the way it possesses them when they're on stage. But there's no way Buddy is going to let them quit. When they talk about throwing it in the river the Guitar snarls a dangerous threat. Back at The Unseen University Ridcully decides to summon Death by the Rite of AshkEnte. If this music can be killed then Death, of course, will know how. Meanwhile, Susan is trying to warn Buddy. He has to try and get rid of the music, and get his life back. He doesn't want to listen to her - and while she is arguing with him, she vanishes - whisked away by Ridcully's magic...moreless
