Another Monday in October means another Monday Magick and another cover of Donovan’s psuedo-occult Psych-Folk chestnut “Season of the Witch” by another largely forgotten band. This week the honor falls to an outstanding take recorded by ’60s “supergroup” The Masked Marauders for their self-titled Warner Brothers Records debut. I put[…]
If you’ve been reading Monday Magick for a while you know that every October, in honor of Halloween, I dedicate a month’s worth of posts to various cover versions of British Psych-Folk grandmaster Donovan’s classic composition “Season of the Witch”. The song has been covered quite a few times, in[…]
I was almost positive that I’d posted “Disco Devil”, Dub originator Lee “Scratch” Perry’s 1979 rework of the Max Romeo Reggae classic “I Chase the Devil”, as part of Monday Magick a long time ago. But as of this morning it’s not anywhere to be found on this website. I[…]
“I be on those chemicals… She be on my testicles… Poke her with my tentacle… Then put her on my schedule…” I’m a lazy fuck who hasn’t listened to anything but “Really Doe”, a brand new track from Detroit emcee Danny Brown featuring Ab-Soul, Kendrick Lamar, and Earl Sweatshirt, all[…]
This week sucks and I really could give a fuck about anything right now. So no in-depth exegesis of deep occult secrets will be had in this week’s Monday Magick. No, instead you’re getting the laid back vamping of saxophonist Grover Washington, Jr. on the Bob James-produced Jazz-Fusion classic “Mister[…]
The word of The Law is Thelema. Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of The Law. So say the lyrics of this week’s Monday Magick submission “Liber AL” by Italian Thelemic Neofolk act The Green Man from their 2009 debut LP ‘From Irem to Summerisle’. The lyrics, of[…]
Tracy R. Twyman, author of ‘Clock Shavings’ and ‘Baphomet: The Temple Mystery Unveiled’, delivers the first in what seems to be an intended series of videos detailing her research into the figure Baphomet that is so integral to several occult traditions, and the mythology surrounding the Knights Templar. In the[…]
I’m still getting back into the swing of things after our brief hiatus, so this week’s Monday Magic entry is something easy and not too deep that most readers should be familiar with. It’s “Magic”, a 1974 single by Scottish quartet Pilot that has been a staple of Classic Rock[…]
Despite ongoing site maintenance things are finally starting to get back in order ’round here. But Monday Magick will still be taking this week off. We should be back with another entry of our magickal musical feature next week.
Regular readers of my Monday Magick column should know by now that I’m capable of finding allusions to sex magick in some pretty unexpected locations. But one of the oddest places I found myself hearing such references was the music of rapper, producer, wanna-be fashion magnate, and noted egomaniac Kanye[…]
I can’t help noting that I’ve posted a lot more Jazz tunes than I have anything that might be considered “Metal” or otherwise stereotypically “dark” as part of this Monday Magick experiment. I don’t know if that says more about my taste in music than the apparent occult interests of[…]
Due to the Independence Day “holiday” Monday Magick will be taking this week off. We should be back with another entry of our magickal musical feature next week.
