Tonight, 23:00 o’clock on German Radio WDR EINS LIVE: “Do what you like – 17 Songs for Aleister Crowley”


From what I am reading this might be a totally disinformed and stupid thing, so please don’t take it as a recommendation, but simply as an information.

From an announcement to that radio play in the Süddeutsche Zeitung of today (my translation):

Devil Worship on WDR

“You have to realize it: You are a star!” Aleister Crowley drummed into his disciples of the Order of the Silver Star. And: “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.” When he was younger he reached for the stars in more down-to-earth manner, as a mountain climber and member of divers expeditions. Later he tended to occultism and drug experiments. They even accused him of being the founder of modern Satanism. The radio drama “Do what you like – 17 Songs for Aleister Crowley” by musician Zeitblom and radio author Michael Farin, who takes a liking in weird subjects, is dedicated this twisted figure. It functions like a pop album. Crowley, who died in 1947, influenced demagogues that followed him: Scientology founder L.Ron Hubbard, murderer Charles Manson. And lots of musicians: David Bowie, The Cream, The Rolling Stones … he even appears on the Beatles’ Sergeant Pepper album cover. “Our Lord, the Beast!” can be heard in one song. Zeitblom and Farin create a character that E.A.Poe couldn’t have done better.
