The Mancunian Can Of Dates.
Da-amn. Tonight I had an opportunity to listen to a promo copy of one of the new Muslimgauze archive CDs, Jah-Mearab, and it is fucking massive. The design of the packaging is tight, and the beats are wicked. (Staalplaat, it's good to have you back.) The late Bryn Jones was often compared to Merzbow in regards to his prolific ways. While Merzbow always won the contest in numbers Muslimgauze whipped--and still whips--his ass in consistency and quality. Seriously. You'll want this. The DIY, the collage, the pulling together, the absolute purity of the endeavor. Totally the shit. If you're wondering what the hell I'm talking about, here's a posthumous release that is only available via free download. Dig.
Big ups to Playing By Ear, as ever.
