Gurdjieff Disciple Covers Song by Crowley Disciple

Here’s another episode of Toyah & Robert’s Sunday Lunch video series. As some of you might know, veteran avant-guitarist Robert Fripp is a long time devotee of the teachings of Russian mystic, George Gurdjieff via his disciple John G. Bennett. Gurdjieff was a contemporary of Aleister Crowley’s and there are some apocryphal tails of the two meeting in person.  A number of Fripp’s releases in the 80’s included snippets of recorded lectures by Bennett. In turn, Living Thelema host David Shoemaker is a devotee of Fripp’s whose participated in several of his Guitar Craft courses.

In this episode, T&R perform “Black Dog” a song co-written by James Page, a former owner of Boleskine House, possibly the world’s best known admirer of the Prophet of the Lovely star.

Can’t get more Thelema-centric than that now can ya?

    “Love is the Law’ is a saying I borrowed from the famous occultist Aleister Crowley… I thought the phrase ‘Love Is the Law’ was possibly one of the most beautiful to ever be uttered because it crosses every social and tribal divide. This…was the happiest period of my life…” – Toyah
