As the COVID era morphs into something far more cursed, in this exclusive communiqué Anthony Nine drops a poetic-occultural dubplate mapping the fundamental lines of contemporary struggle in a world of politricksters. With a timely advocacy of the power and discipline of real magical practice against the insidious enchantments of ‘meme magic’ and the uncontrolled consequences of its tawdry cons, this impassioned reading touches on memory, the powers of bewilderment and misdirection, and our relation to life and death, past and future. Essential listening for survival in 21st Century Babylon
