“Blood and Rockets: Movement I, Saga of Jack Parsons – Movement II, Too the Moon” by The Claypool Lennon Delirium
The song is a masterpiece, the video is a masterpiece and the information presented is accurate: a brief biography of rocket scientist/ occultist Jack Parsons, a once-obscure character that has entered pop culture with a bang in the last few years. This Terry-Gilliam-inspired audiovisual piece contains more meat than most books and I would like to say it’s much better than that “Strange Angel” TV show, but it looks cheesy and I haven’t watched it.
The duo, The Claypool Lennon Delirium, are Sean Lennon, son of John and Yoko, and the hard-hard bass player Les Claypool of Primus fame. Their debut album is incredible and this is the first single of “South of Reality”, the second one, out February 22, 2019.
A lot of alchemical themes, occult allegories, dubious characters, sex magick allusions and sacred geometry present up there in the video, but I’ll let you all decode it for yourselves. The lyrics are in the description box of the video.
