I’ve stuck a wee bit of extra background information, recently cleaned from the memory banks of Mr Vex Dhole onto the Crawling Chaos website. This relates to the lyrics to Jhonns’ Angel, which seem to be wrong – honest guv; I woz only singin’ what woz written down on a piece of paper…
It all centres on John Dee and Edward Kelly. Read all about them on Wikipedia. Or somewhere else.
Kelly kopped it when he couldn’t turn lead into gold.
Dee had a huge library, the biggest in England, but obviously didn’t have enough time to read it as he went off wife-swapping and when he got back it had been nicked.
I wonder what my life would be, condensed into a sentence? Hmm.
