Fantastic music (& info, & welcome). So lucky to have you here Gary.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:37pm Gary:

On 25 June 1998, at approximately 12:30 pm local time, Matoub's car was stopped at a roadblock while he was driving along a mountainous road in eastern Algeria. The car was fired upon by masked gunmen, killing Matoub and wounding his wife, Nadia Matoub, and two sisters-in-law. Within hours, news of Matoub's murder had spread throughout Kabylie and thousands of angry mourners gathered around the hospital where his body was taken. The crowd shouted "Pouvoir, Assassin" ("Government, Assassins"). A week of violent riots followed his death. Young demonstrators clashed with riot police and attacked government property. On 28 June 1998 tens of thousands people attended his funeral in front of his house in his native village. He was buried between a fig tree and a cherry tree, opposite the house he was born in. Matoub's family played a scathing parody of the Algerian national anthem, which came from Matoub's final album Lettre ouverte aux... ("Open letter to..."), released after his death (Gold-Disc). Matoub's assassination occurred a week before a law excluding languages other than Arabic from public life was due to come into effect. Matoub had been an outspoken critic of this law. On 30 June 1998 the GIA claimed responsibility for the assassination of Lounes Matoub.

It really is the best SF track, non?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21pm Gary:

I mean, it's cheating b/c it's like 4 mini tracks in 1, but ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:28pm northguineahills:

What did I miss?.... Oh, a lot!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:29pm Gary:

You missed the one Algerian death metal track I'll be playing tonight. Or, was it black metal? Hi NGH!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:31pm northguineahills:

Oh, I heard that!

the wiki on Lounès Matoub is quite a good read.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:33pm northguineahills:

Once, in the old basement of Tonic, a dj was playing nothing but rai for 3 hours. I took my field recorder, went into the bathroom, and recorded the natural reverb to use as sound samples later.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:34pm northguineahills:

More death metal w/ the cookie monster voice.
Avatar 8:35pm hyde:

@ngh haha
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:41pm Gary:

I bet those are awesome sound samples, NGH
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:44pm northguineahills:

Unfortunately it was on mini-disc, I just need to find a mini-disc players (I don't like to edit field recordings live outside of using whatever device they were originally recorded on).
