INFO > In 1990, Anne Dudley (The Art Of Noise) teamed up with Jaz Coleman (Killing Joke) to produce an album, “Songs From The Victorious City”, inspired by Cairo, Egypt, where recording sessions took place. The project’s description of ‘A Unique Collaboration’ is certainly apt, mixing traditional Middle Eastern instruments and arrangements with contemporary production elements. While Anne Dudley is well known for her orchestrations and keyboard work, I was surprised to discover that Coleman’s talents extend to violin, pipe, and flute. Three singles were released in conjunction with the project: “Minarets And Memories” (1990), “Habebe” (1991), and “Ziggarats Of Cinnamon” (1991). A belated US release of “Minarets And Memories” was issued in 1992 with new mixes by Mark Kamins.
