More Info"As another year draws to a close we present you with the latest works of Muslimgauze, and we're sure it'll make you happy. Jaal ab Dullah makes a crazy lunge out the noise gate and onto the dance floor, then gets sucked into a jet engine and ejected into space. All in the first song. It's a wild ride from start to finish, with quake-damaged noisebeats tumbling onto exploding turntables and hip-hop lava flows overwhelming The Quiet Village while Dub Demons do the Funky Monkey on a bed of hot coals. The struggle for a free Palestine has always been Muslimgauze's inspiration, even if the connection between the music and the cause has never seemed more than tenuous. 1997 has been a difficult year in the Middle East, and Muslimgauze seek to comment on the current situation, however obliquely, through Jaal ab Dullah. And let there be no doubt: Their position is resolutely pro-Palestinian. This year a number of American journalists have boycotted Muslimgauze for political reasons, feebly objecting on the grounds that to review a Muslimgauze CD is to advocate violence. Could the song"Anti-Arab Media Censor" from Arab Quarter possibly be hitting too close to home? Muslimgauze refuse to compromise, and until Palestine is free they'll keep provoking us."
