Originally released in 1983, in the same year that the first two Muslimgauze LPs were released, Jones released an obscure 7inch ins a blank black sleeve on a label called Hessian. »Hammer & Sickle« is only release on the label ever – it might have been a camouflaged self-release. »Hammer & Sickle« operates in a similar territory as the mentioned LPs (but if anything a little further out from the main body of Jones’ work): They’re much spacier, more drifting, and notably less interested in using the kind of Middle Eastern percussion and other instrumentation that’s such a distinct element on many Muslimgauze releases.
