1 - FAUST - 1971-1974 - (CD) 
BUREAU B


A bands fame can be measured in the sum of myths, legends and stories which are conjured up in their wake. In which case, Faust have been playing in the Champions League for quite some time. Few bands have been as innovative, influential or as irrepressible as FAUST -the way they revolutionized the history of music in the space of just four years puts them right up there with The Velvet Underground. What began in a Hamburg (Sternschanze) bunker in 1970 would send shockwaves around the world. Heres how Stephen Morris (Joy Division/New Order) remembers it: "The first Krautrock record which made a lasting impression on me was the debut album by Faust. The transparent disc looked spectacular and the music was mindblowing, not songs as such, it was something absolutely unique, the polar opposite of everything the Rolling Stones, Beatles and the like were doing. It was right up my street." (quoted in: Dallach/Future Sounds, p. 485 ff.)This box is the first virtually complete collection of FAUST works from the years 1971-1974. In addition to the debut album referenced by Morris, it includes the 1972 album So Far, the legendary 1973 Virgin UK release The Faust Tapes ("Some chose to play frisbee with the LP, others said it changed their lives" as Jean-Herv Peron noted), Faust IV and, for the first time ever, the mythical, so-called "Munich album" Punkt, which Faust recorded at Giorgio Moroders Musicland Studios in 1974. For one reason or another, this last album never saw the light of day - until now. The bonus albums Momentaufnahme I and Momentaufnahme II also feature unreleased material, simultaneously affording us a fascinating glimpse of Fausts creativity in their W studio phase.Two 7-inch singles round off the Faust 1971-1974 compendium: Lieber Herr Deutschland is the demo recording they sent to Polydor in 1971, remarkably triggering a contract offer from the label who had something of a conservative reputation at the time. The track later resurfaced as the B-side to their single Baby, a song which had been rejected by the aforementioned label. The second 7-inch single in the box is a rerelease of So Far, the first FAUST single on Polydor, originally issued in 1972.It is by no means overstating the case to assert that FAUST created and christened a genre (the name would prove emotive) in one fell swoop (track 1 on Faust IV).This box is no more and no less than the holy grail of Krautrock. Even 50 years (or perhaps all the more so) after they took their first musical steps in a bunker near Hamburgs Sternschanze station, Faust still sound revolutionary, timeless, irrepressible and, above all, unique.Mastered from the original tapes, Faust 1971-1974 is available as a limited edition vinyl set (2,000 copies) and CD (1,000 copies).

3 - FAUST - 71 MINUTES - (LP) 
RER


With Magma, Faust was one of the most important of all the European groups of the 70's. Compiled from "lost" and unreleased material, originally released as "Munich & Elsewhere" on the 10th Anniversary of their disbandment (inc.prophetic pre-dub mixing) as well as most of the unreleased "Faust Party 3" LP.

7 - FAUST - FAUST - (LP) 
LILITH


Legendary German post-rock band formed in 1971 by undisputed noise pioneer Uwe Nettelbeck, Faust garnered an immediate following due to its artistically extreme experimentations with music cut ups and other mixed sources hinging on cacophony and distortion. Don't miss their 1971 cult classic debut, now reissued with its original clear printed sleeve on 180 gram vinyl.

8 - FAUST - FRESH AIR - (CD) 
BUREAU B


faUSt has recorded a new album. It is entitled "Fresh Air" and differs in several respects from its predecessor "Just Us", from the year 2014. At the time, the recordings were made at Peron's rehearsal studio in Schiphorst in northern Germany, hypnotic pieces with the kind of noisemaking the band is known for. For the new album, Peron and Diermaier were looking for communication with musician friends and the audience. The tracks were recorded in changing ensembles at changing locations in the USA (during a 28-day tour in March/April 2016).In these community recordings, with friendly support from Peron's database of field recordings, a strongly shaded noise music emerged which extends its feelers to the remotest corners of the here and now. Droning, swinging, lusting for freedom, here and there holding out quite stoically as machine-room blues. Or just phonetically - along the geometry. On board are the freely fabulous Barbara Manning in a live lecture, Juergen Engler (Die Krupps) in overdub and Ysanne Spevack as a wonderful wavemaker on the viola.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Fresh Air 17:31 02. Birds Of Texas 2:31 03. Partitur 0:22 04. La Poulie 6:38 05. Chlorophyl 8:04 06. Lights Flicker 5:40 07. Fish 11:25

10 - FAUST - JUST US - (CD) 
BUREAU B


Faust for all - The Krautrock legends lay down the musical foundations for everyone else to make something of their own"j US t"-pronounced "Just Us"-is the new album from legendary Hamburg band Faust. Founder members Jean-Herve Peron and Zappi Diermaier have laid down twelve musical foundations, inviting the whole world to use them as a base on which to build their own music. The tracks presented by Peron and Diermaier are clearly, intrinsically typical of Faust in their own right, yet offer enough space for completely different works to develop. Which is exactly what they hope will happen. Whilst Diermaier largely remains true to his habitual handiwork-drums and percussion-Peron, as we might expect, incorporates all manner of unusual sonic sources alongside his bass, various string instruments and piano, even using a sewing machine as a metronome. Tracks like "nur nous" and "ich bin ein pavian" show that Faust have lost none of their predilection for avant-garde Dadaism and improvisation. Peron and Diermaier actually surprise us with folkloristic excursions ("cavaquiho", "gammes"). In short, there is something for everyone to work with here. Peron and Diermaier await the results with bated breath. Faust will follow the same principle on the accompanying tour by inviting local artists to collaborate with them on stage.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Gerubelt 02. 80hz 03. Sur Le Ventre 04. Cavaquinho 05. Gammes 06. Nahmaschine 07. Nur Nous 08. Palpitations 09. Der Kaffee Kocht 10. Eeeeeeh... 11. Ich Bin Ein Pavian 12. Ich Sitze Immer Noch

14 - FAUST - THE FAUST TAPES - (LP) 
SUPERIOR VIADUCT


Faust stand among the most influential creative forces to have emerged from Germany in the late '60s and early '70s. Along with Can, Agitation Free, Neu! and others, they rejected the Anglo-American norms of rock 'n' roll to start a back-to-basics and uniquely Teutonic revolution in sound - later dubbed by the UK press with the semi-derogatory term "krautrock." They would reach near-mythical status through a series of classic albums recorded between 1970 and 1973 at their secluded W studio.As Dave Segal writes in the liner notes, "There's no consensus about which Faust album represents their zenith. But a survey of the group's fans would likely find the collage-heavy messterpiece The Faust Tapes triumphing. Its freewheeling, jump-cut nature and unlikely earworm moments conspire for more what-the-fuck epiphanies per minute than just about any other record about which Krautrocksampler author Julian Cope has raved."Comprised of twenty odd tape-manipulation experiments and freak-out jams, The Faust Tapes stashes away some of the band's best-known songs. "Flashback Caruso," with its delicate acoustic guitar and Rudolf Sosna's airy vocals, could easily have appeared on So Far or Faust IV, while on "J'ai Mal Aux Dents," Jean-Herv Peron's playful lyrics and this ecstatic, era-defining riff perfectly represent Faust's magical mischievousness.This first-time domestic release of The Faust Tapes on vinyl reproduces the original sleeve design, featuring artwork by Bridget Riley.
