Does anyone remember Muslimgauze? It was the creative outlet of Bryn Jones, a man from England who was basically a human assembly line, extruding close to 100 albums’ worth of material over the course of roughly 15 years. (The first Muslimgauze material appeared in 1983, and he died in January 1999 of pneumonia, caused by a fungal infection in his bloodstream, which sounds like the kind of thing a noise musician would use as a track title.) In the nearly quarter century since his death, dozens more releases have emerged; Discogs lists 151 albums, 34 singles and EPs, and 18 compilations, plus five “miscellaneous” items: a flexi-disc, a half-hour interview released digitally, etc.
