Eg Oblique Graph (Muslimgauze). Early recordings

October 18, 2007

egobliquegraph_01Another chance discovery from my old tapes box (which i hadn’t bothered to look at for twenty years…) is this recording from Bryn Jones’ ‘Eg Oblique Graph’. These two tracks ‘Fall Into Glass’ and ‘Linked to Gaulist Conspiracy’ are from a cassette Bryn sent to me (as usual nicely presented with typographic printed and xeroxed designs – a contrast to the DIY ethic of the time) when i started the Recloose Organisation label around 1981. Shortly after this we released a 7″ 3 track EP ‘Triptich’ of similar material, and shortly after that he changed the bands name to ‘Muslimgauze’ (much to our horror). I think these tracks are some of the best work he ever did – very experimental, inventive and uncompromisingly electronic, to me his later work became too repetitive, formulaic and rather unimaginative.

    I must admit that I’m quite curious about Bryn Jones. Every interview with him or article about him I read tells me that I would have disliked his character very much (it’s not only the politics which I find shallow, there’s something else, though I can’t quite put my finger on it) but I find almost all of his musical output (what I’ve heard, at least – there’s tons) very appealing.
