<strong>Faust - German Avant-Garde at its anarchistic best. Plus you could dance to it</strong>.

Views:

Faust came about at a time when German rock (or Krautrock if you really have to) was heading into new, uncharted electro-acoustic/electronic experimental territory. Bands like Can and Guru-Guru were getting international reputations and Faust was cutting-edge and had enormous appeal for a lot of the Progressive bands coming out of England, France and Italy. Eventually, their influence spread over to the states with several groups citing them as a huge influence in honing their sound.

Bounced around from label to label, simply because nobody really knew what to do with them, Faust managed to carve out a legacy that is still listed as a major influence by many bands even today.

Tonights track, Jennifer, comes from Faust IV, released during their brief period with Virgin Records. Faust initially split up in 1975 after parting company with Virgin. They did resurface in the 1980's and, at last check had an album issued recently.

And people still don't quite know what to make of them.
