Lalique Gadaffi Handgrenade


Released as the first track on the Minaret-Spearker 7″ picture disc in 1996, “Arab Jeruzalem” is 5:42 of effectively shifting dark ambience, wordless female vocals drifting over the hand percussion, chimes, and static of the track, with eventual conversational loops discussing…something underneath. The almost 24-minute “Arab Jerusalem” here might be called the Deer Hunter version of the same story, building with great patience and many more abstract detours towards what now seems like simultaneously an excerpt and, now, a climax. The other three tracks, meanwhile, suggest some of Jones' other work but never evoke them as directly as “Arab Jerusalem”.
