Muslimgauze - "Abu Nidal" [1987]

Artist: Muslimgauze
Title: Abu Nidal
Genre: Ambient / Percussion Industrial
Country: UK
Release date: 1987

Track List:
  1. Gulfwar pt.1
  2. Gulfwar pt.2
  3. Gulfwar pt.3
  4. Abu Nidal
  5. Green Is The Colour Of The Prophet
  6. Fatwa (Religious Decree Giving Recourse To Terrorism)
In my opinion, it's one of the best early releases by Muslimgauze. Just like all his other albums (which number is exceeding 200...), this one is highly inspired by Middle Eastern politics. According to the release notes, "Abu Nidal" is dedicated to the Palestine Liberation Organization, and released on a label called Muammar Murmur Music (brilliant name!..) Such a pity that Bryn Jones never lived to 9/11 - I'm wondering what kind of music he could have written after it (and after the consequent wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya...)
