The Light Bringer


An occultist soundtrack for yer, from Crowley follower and Led Zep member Jimmy Page, originally commissioned by Anger then dropped in favour of Bobby Beausoleil’s version. I like the droning and over curling textures, though the keyboards and editing are a bit naïve by today's standards, they have a rough texture which is satisfying in itself. The occasional chaotic thunder claps/artillery onslaught bringing some much needed definition to the persistent sludge and chanting is always good for satanic flavour. Seems that it’s been ripped from an original vinyl pressing and has that muggy authenticity of true antiquity with the richness of the sound appropriately buried.

I haven’t managed to see Lucifer Rising yet, any good? I liked ‘The Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome’ with all its creepy costumed shenanigans but never got round to watching this one...

Lucifer Rising is fantastic. I have it on video...but you still can't get it on DVD, which is a shame. Anger is notorious for this. Well worth a look if you can get hold of it. There is a very strange Anger film on YouTube as well. Bizarre.

There was a fantastic Crowley exhibition a few years back in London and Anger turned up...it was brilliant. I went back the next day to see him again. They showed all the films.

or do a search on YouTube...it's split in 3 parts...but still...worth a look if you haven't seen it.

Have you ever read Crowley's Book Of Lies?

Oooh yes...tis marvellous. I think I might do a Kenneth Anger 'remix' of the doll movie with blood spatter and fire.
