Ibrahim’s encyclopedic book on the history and music of Muslingauze is finally finished “Muslimgauze: Chasing the Shadow of Bryn Jones” will soon be available from amazon:

“A decade after his untimely passing, Bryn Jones, better known as Muslimgauze, left behind a staggering catalogue of published and unreleased music that continues to be appreciated by dedicated fans as well as converts to industrial, techno, hip-hop, dancehall reggae and dubstep styles. Manchester-born Jones was both prolific and controversial. Working alone in his bedroom studio, Muslimgauze’s music highlighted the struggles of the Muslim world against the West, with the Palestine/Israel conflict as the focal point.”

    Thanks for the post.

    Or get your local independent bookstore to order it.

    How about an “encyclopedic book” on Bourbonese Qualk? I’d be down for that.

    A book about Muslimgauze? I can’t wait!!
    Although I’m a little disappointed with the cover art, with over 200 releases with great artwork you would think a more crafty book cover would be more appropriate for this.

    I think the cover art is really appropriate and I appreciate that it also works on an emotional level.
    Bryn Jones into the light.
    His genious deserves a book and all the fans are waiting for it !

    I also like the artwork. I take it to be an obscured picture of Jones, and that’s exactly what the mythos of Muslimgauze is all about (or a large part of it, in any case). I only hope that the book won’t be too demystifying.
