From a similar place, musically,one can loosely connect Muslimgauze to Zoviet France via the dark tribal ethnological ambiance angle.
To call the 'late' Bryn Jones prolific is somewhat an understatement,there being around 200 albums and counting to date;over half of them posthumous. However, variety,is not a word one could apply to the vast majority of his canon.Heavily percussive blends of found sounds from middle eastern cultures,mixed in with ambient drones and electronica, make for a doomy antediluvian experience. Then there's the obsession with middle eastern politics,especially the PLO; to the leader of whom, the equally 'late' Yasser Arafat,this LP is dedicated.
As much as any normal person can sympathise with the plight of the Palestinian, and the 'Nazi-style' ghettoisation and ethnic cleansing of the westbank and Gaza by Israel; it does get a tad boring to be confronted with the same theme for over two hundred albums!?.....OK!We get it!
That said,after the recent Terror attacks in Paris, this work has a continuing relevance.
