From an interview with R.U. Sirius:

Alan worships an imaginary Roman snake god. I remember the day. I was sitting at home and the phone rang and it was --Alan, who had always been a devout rationalist -- a man who would have made Penn and Teller feel that they were superstitious. So Alan called me up and said [Cockney accent], "Neil. It's my 40th birthday next week and I've decided to get me midlife crisis over with, so I’m becoming a warlock and I'm going to be worshiping an imaginary Roman snake god. Just thought you’d like to know mate. Alright?"


Not being an Englishman, I can't vouch that it's Cockney, but the accent really is tremendous.
