There is no group more mythical than Faust.
Faust are essential, not just as a history lesson, but as a living legacy and as a reproach to an underachieving age.
A radical mix of Musique Concrete, Stockhausen, the Velvet Underground, and moments of almost pastoral beauty.
Faust were first!
Anyone who's loved the last half-decade's re-invention of the guitar, (Sonic Youth, My Bloody Valentine et al.), will instantly recognize Faust as a prime ancestor of 'our' music.
