Occult

Invocation Of My Demon Brother

An 11 minute film directed, edited and photographed by Kenneth Anger in 1969. The music was composed by Mick Jagger. It was filmed in San Francisco at the Straight theater and the (former) Russian Embassy. According to Kenneth Anger, the film was assembled from scraps of the first version of Lucifer Rising.

Music - Mick Jagger

Speed Hacker - Wand bearer
Kenneth Anger - Magus
Lenore Kandel- Deaconess
William Kandel - Deacon
Van Leuven - Acolyte
Harvey Bialy & Timotha Bially - Brother and Sister of the Rainbow
Anton LaVey - His Satanic Majesty
Bobby Beausoleil - Lucifer

Invocation of My Demon Brother (1969) is the eighth of Anger’s nine extant short films, which are collectively titled The Magick Lantern Cycle (1947–1980). Not one of Kenneth Anger’s best-known works, Invocation has come to be eclipsed by the earlier pieces, Fireworks (1947) and Scorpio Rising (1963), in the pantheon of American avant-garde films that are regularly revived by film societies and universities. In this essay, I will show that it remains one of Kenneth Anger’s richest works, in terms of its use of symbol and ritual, and is a title that deserves greater critical recognition than it has been afforded in recent years.

Perhaps the single strongest influence on Kenneth Anger, evident from both films and interviews, has been that of the English occultist Aleister Crowley (1875–1947). Crowley coined the term magick to refer to the system of occult beliefs that he propounded and to distinguish them from traditional systems of magic. Crowley’s most significant contributions to early 20th century occultism were the integration of Nietzschean thought along with principles derived from the budding science of psychology. He defined magick as “the Science and Art of causing Change to occur in conformity with the Will”, and argued that every intentional act is a magickal act (6). The religious doctrine that he developed, known as the “Holy Law of Thelema”, centres on his maxim, “Do what thou Wilt shall be the whole of the Law”.

Kenneth Anger: "...Anyway, I took those various scraps with me when I came to London and added new material from the Hyde Park concert, from Marianne Faithfull and all my new friends. I showed it to Mick Jagger and he added a soundtrack from a new Moog synthesiser he was experimenting with - he just gave it to me. I think that's rather unusual."

Daryl Hall ~ Without Tears (1980)

This song was recorded in 1977, but not released until 1980 because RCA wanted a Hall & Oates album at the time as they were beginning to get some popularity. The song was inspired by a 1954 Aleister Crowley book called Magick Without Tears.

Vince Neil: Some people said we were Satanic and angry. We always thought that was funny, but we were like, ‘Hey, if it gets us attention let’s go with that.’ We were so starved for stardom that we were willing to do whatever it took. But there was no anger at all. We were just having fun.
