After a little research, however, I found out that, unlike the unfortunately ultra-bland tracks I've heard from the album so far (bummer!), the actual inspiration for the album's title came from experimental filmmaker Norman McLaren and his brilliant and gorgeous film of the same name from 1949, scored by the Oscar Petersen Trio .
