A True & Faithful Relation Of What Passed For Many years Between Dr. John Dee And Some Spirits

This artist I am familiar with from his techno productions on TZ vinyl which was an obscure offshoot of R&S Records in the early 90s. Here he is in dark and occult ambient mode. Opener 'For I Am Of Him That Liveth Forever' is intense, captivating ambient, evoking images of Magick rituals. Alistair Crowley's voice is sampled which adds to the cloaked and sinister feel. In many ways it sounds like something Coil may have come up with. Next we're in classy modern classical territory with weeping strings and the dramatic piano arrangements of 'Dr. Dee's Apology'. Then back into cavernous and bleak drones and haunting ambient glistening tones. Dramatic and engaging throughout and totally recommended. First 100 copies come in unique hand painted sleeves.

For I Am Of Him That Lives Forever!
Track Name: A Vision: The Garden Of Comfort
Now Uriel is here; he hath a Chair, and is set down on it: It is like a throne..
Here I see a green Hill: and I see thereon three men, like learned men, in Gowns of puke-colour: they have Hats on their heads.
Uriel hat in his hand a thing like a rolling-pin (of half an ell long) of Gold.

I see beyond the men, a very fair Park, enclosed with pale, piked and so.
I see Roses and Lillies, and goodly Flowers in one part of it, and fair running waters in it, and little Hills, and all manner of Birds:
And in the middle of the Park, is a turret, and in the top of that, a round thing like a Stone, which giveth light all the Park over:
but without the Park pale, it is duskish or dark.
These three men stand together upon the pitch of the bank of the Hill that goes down toward Uriel.
There appear three diverse fair wayes to the Park, two from the Hill where the men stand, and one from the place about Uriel.

1. I see one man walk in the Park, and he picketh Flowers, and putting them to his mouth, they smoke, as the smoke of the snuff of a candle when the candle is put out.
2. I see likewise another man gathering of Flowers there, and he would put the Flowers to make them stick on his Coat, but they will not hang on but fall down, it is so bare.
3. I see a third man, who hath his Robes all belayed with lace of gold, great and small, and divers precious Stones, and on his head a wreath like a garland, very broad beset with very beautiful precious Stones: and he trimmeth himself all over with the flowers of the Park or Garden, Now the three men are come from the Hill, before Uriel his seat.

Now they three go toward the Garden of Comfort: they point one to another, and seem to talke one with another. They go in the path which leadeth from him toward the Park.
Now here cometh a man from the Park-ward, and meeteth those three men, and giveth them three very rich garments: they put off their former garments, and put on those rich and beautiful garments.

He is gone.
