Leamington Spa produced some recording greats, like Swell Maps,The Shapes, and....erm Aleister Crowley, aka The Great Beast.
Yes, Satan came from an upper middle class town in Warwickshire,and if you've ever visted there,you'll see why.
So this slightly posh bloke spent most of his free time,of which there seemed to be a lot, mucking about with the Occult,flirting with Nazism,mountaineering,and shagging.......lots of shagging.....of all gender types.
Basically a decadent Occultist, he became the object of fascination for many an impressionable musician in the 70's and 80's. But he seemed to be a bit of a Twat as far as I can see. Narcissistic and self-indulgent,Crowley considered himself to be one of the outstanding figures of his time.....don't we all?
Here we have the complete recorded works of Crowley's poems and innvocations from about 1914 to 1920 ,plus a rousing operatic version of 'vive La France', for some strange reason.
The Devil he were not, a silly old knob, he certainly was.
