Together they have recorded a concept album about Aleister Crowley. Yes, that Aleister Crowley, the Great Beast!   It all starts in 1974. John Povey is sitting with Jimmy Page in the Hyatt hotel on Sunset Blvd watching a film by Kenneth Anger "Scorpio Rising". Listening to Jimmy's music they talk about many things, including his interest in one Aleister Crowley! The seed is sown. Fast forward to 2016. Jon Povey is working with Twink on his "Technicolor Dream" music, adding keyboards and vocals. Twink says: "Ever thought about looking into Crowley poetry and writing music to it?" Another seed drops into Povey’s mind. Sometime later he purchased several books about this strange and complicated man, Aleister Crowley which inspired him to write the album Crowley and Me.
