Stuart Inman: From his earliest involvement with Alex Sanders' Wicca, immersion in esoteric Tibetan Buddhism, to becoming one of the foremost exponents on Traditional Witchcraft and a guardian of the 1734 tradition and method, Stuart Inman is an authority on Surrealism and magister of the Clan of the Entangled Thicket.

I was aware that Tony Visconti was a student of Chime’s, although I never met him, and I remember one day walking to the tube with Chime and seeing a poster for Bowie’s latest album, ‘Lodger’, and Chime saying casually Oh, David Bowie, he’s a friend of mine ! There’s a lot about that I only learned of when Bowie died and Chime made a very moving video tribute.

Alex Sanders was the founder of the Alexandrian tradition of Wicca, which has proved popular particularly in Britain and Canada. He deliberately courted publicity and controversy, and was proclaimed King of the Witches by his followers, which created dissent with many other Wiccans. However, many, including Stewart Farrar, claim that Sanders has made major contributions to the modern development of the craft. She let him copy her Book of Shadows when he was nine and taught him the rites and magic of witches, along with techniques of scrying in inky water and in crystals.

A Witch Is Born Lyrics. In a crooked house As old as the forest A child was born in fire. Her hellish voice Her screams and yells In my crystal that night I could hear. Ten thousand children That day she was born Suffered and died in their cribs. With eyes of lightning Raven black hair She was a beauty. She came here with evil and the cruelest plague. I admire her beauty And the madness that she brings Singing in awe Hair o' new born witch. A Witch Is Born" Track Info.

Sanders was the consummate showman and trickster, and a grain of salt is required when reading this biography. It’s hard to say whether Johns believed everything Sanders told her, or whether she was simply writing in the vein of the sensationalist journalism so prevalent at the time, but nonetheless she does a good job of making some extraordinary events seem plausible. Johns covers much of Sanders’ childhood, spent training as a witch and seer, before moving on to his expanding interest in the occult, including a foray into spiritualism and, later, black magic.

This included appearances in a string of exploitation movies shot around the late '60s/early '70s, and one now very collectible LP, A Witch Is Born, released by A&M in 1970 and featuring a recording of a Wiccan initiation. As the 1970s passed, Sanders slipped out of the public eye, eventually breaking with Maxine and retiring into virtual seclusion. He passed away on Beltane Eve, April 30, 1983.
