    Need a repress on vinyl.. please! Muslimgauze – Veiled Sisters is on the way.. 1993 years is maybe one of the best period of Jones work

      This was my introduction to Muslimgauze in 1993 and is still one of my favourites alongside Mullah Said, Return of Black September and Sandtrafikar. If you're looking for an album to faciltate deep introspection or meditation this one is probably the best to pick from his impressive discography. If you want something similar to this check out Veiled Sisters.

        "What could possibly have inspired a 22-year-old middle-class Mancunian graphic designer to so have so fully handed over his life to a cause wholly alien from his daily reality? In nearly every interview he ever gave, Bryn Jones pointed to two events as defining his transition from music dabbler to defiant pro-Palestinian propagandist: Israel’s US-backed invasion of Lebanon in 1982, and the Soviet Union’s invasion of Afghanistan the following year. To him, the contempt shown to the people of the Middle East by both Cold War superpowers was emblematic of the very nature of oppression, and from that point forward, nothing else would matter in his music or his life. He saw the conflict in Israel as the defining issue of his time, and believed that everyone in the world would eventually find themselves on one side of it or another. His choice was made early on, and he never flagged in his support of Palestine. The sole criticism of Yassir Arafat he allowed himself was when the PLO leader signed a peace accord with Israeli prime minister Yitzhak Rabin – Muslimgauze responded with an album featuring cover art of their historical handshake, and the simple title Betrayal."

          Not my favourite Muslimgauze release but still decent. However, the thing that really bothers me is that surely it's "Nablus" not "Nabius" these tracks should be called??? I could be wrong though....

              My favourite Muslimgauze. All the tracks are variations on a theme/remixes, but in here are some of his most compelling rhythms and ad hoc percussion and found sounds, especially track 9. there is a mountain of Jones' recordings out there now; but this is a great place to start.
