    Yeah MG is certainly, uh, divisive. You may find this thread interesting: http://www.dissensus.com/showthread....ht=muslimgauze

    And this: http://www.dissensus.com/showthread....ghlight=Muslim gauze (at least until it degenerates into a slightly tiresome argument about authenticity and the meaning of 'good' vs 'bad' taste.)

    i really want to get into muslimgauze (in theory it should appeal to me, industrial w middle east percussion) but in practice it all falls flat. doesn't help that he was a crude orientalising oh let's be an edgelord and flirt with political islamism, as well as having a kneejerk unprincipled absolutely anti-anything is good anti-israel stance. bleeding into antisemitism. *sigh* white people sometimes.

    I guess I'm sensitive towards this shitt what with being a turkish kurd and liberals supporting the power grab of the political islamists in the 00s, and remaining quiet when the left was decimated two decades before. so i really don't find it transgressive in any shape or form.

    But thats for another time i suppose.[/QUOTE]


    This doesnt surprise me considering i often do wonder how people from other cultures feel about this attempt at trying to be transgressive by white brehs like Muslimgauze and Dominic Fernow who thinks flirting with political islamism,naming songs after military operations and expecting people to read their rambling essays about their interest in this kinda thing makes them "dangerous"

    i appreciate the idea of puncturing western sensibilities about the monolithic portrayal of islam and muslims but mg doesn't do that at all. so i guess there could be some avenue for further investigating there.

    I have the feeling that he would be pro-assad on dodgy eurasian nationalist grounds were he alive today. Then again i could see him sympathising with the islamist rebels like HTS and jabhat (not to be confused with the syrian civilian resistance...)

    he would probably see the demonstrators in maraat misreen as scum.

    trash tbh.

    ppl say he sounds like shackleton 20 years before but i don't here it. so monotonous.

    With shackleton's percussion you can here that he's engaged with the rhythmic ideas of middle eastern music and tried to orientate them to his lancashire perspective. he knows how to make the rhythms dynamic. mg doesn't.

    Barty give us a drum analysis plz.
