"Whoever educates the people without uniting them in a loving way of mind is like someone who weeds without wanting to harvest. Whoever unites the people through a loving way of mind without calming them with music is like someone who harvests without wanting to eat. Whoever calms the people with music but does not perfect them in harmony with the law of nature is like someone who eats but does not thrive." - D.D.L.G. 4:20

"Crowley's own musical career was brief and uneventful. He toured England in 1900 as part of a two-man vaudeville act, Crowley And Howdy, who sang original compositions at impromptu minstrel shows in taverns and public squares. One of their dance songs, "I'm Going To Eat Blood Sausage With My Saucy Girl Tonight," was a sizeable sheet-music hit in Britain, with reported sales of 500,000 in London alone. Half of these sales were made to grade-school choir instructors. The musical team parted ways acrimoniously when Crowley ate Howdy's gall bladder at an Oktoberfest celebration in Heidelberg, Germany."
