The classic 1st album by Faust. Upon its release in 1971, it really looked and SOUNDED like nothing else. Intelligent and crafty use of the studio in a way that no one else in rock other than Frank Zappaa was doing (and it sounds nothing like The Mothers).
While I actually *enjoy* some of their other works more, none of their other albums were as radical and shocked the scene as much as this one. As the man in England who owns the label would say, "recommended!"

"Krautrock legends Faust are back with an unbelievable 4 disc live set. Recorded last year in the UK, it features many enduring Faust classics performed live for the very first time after all these years. The first two CDs in the set consist of...

Faust are a rightly legendary experimental German ensemble from the early 1970's. This was the last album to be released in their lifetime and the 1st to be recorded outside of their 'legendary' studio at Wumme. It's one of their great ones; perhaps not..

"Faust tell of an heroic time when reaching for the stars did not have to include getting the stars in order to be successful."-Julian Cope

I assume that the $2.00 more than usual price is because this apparently includes a license for you to...

"At last, a well made film that captures the intensity, caprice, craziness and visionary beauty of Faust’s late ’90s performances, when, for a moment the core members of the original band were temporarily reconciled. Professionally filmed at the...

"This double CD set catches legendary German experimental rock outfit Faust's debut concert in Poland, from Krakow's Loch Ness Club, on the 15th November 2006. Spread over both discs, we are afforded a perfect opportunity to hear a blend of the band's...

Faust are a rightly legendary experimental German ensemble from the early 1970's. This is almost all of their two posthumous albums which feature the unreleased "Faust V" album and their recordings before they dissolved in the 70's. [ReR]

Remastered version of the classic 2nd album by Faust. This one seems to get lost in all the praise heaped on the one that came before it (their s/t debut) and the one that came after (Faust Tapes), but this is one of my very favorites by them. There se...

"Faust has been around for over 40 years. Since 2007, the line-up of the Krautrock legends has comprised founding members Jean-HervÈ Peron and Zappi Diermaier, the English musician James Johnston, founder of the brutish blues rockers Gallon Drunk...

"Faust was among the most adventurous and creative German bands of the 70s, and after disappearing for a decade and a half, they reunited in the 90s and made several startlingly good albums. Today, drummer Werner 'Zappi' Diermaier and bassist Jean...

"New collaboration with Faust and Z'EV. Faust were the leaders of the "Krautrock" movement of early 70s Germany. Their records still sound ahead of their time in the 21st Century, true visionaries and artists. This collaboration features original Faust...

This is a very, very good and groovy official bootleg of one of the very few shows that Robert & Brian undertook upon release of their first album.

"As a historical document, this release takes some beating. Recorded during the short – and...

A good performance of music for dance, all performed by Fred (via extensive overdubbing). "Any new record from Fred Frith, one of the worlds leading avant rock guitarists and composers, is a major event. Accidental was commissioned by a British choreog...

Composed and recorded in 1989, but not released until 1996, this has Joey Baron-drums, George Cartwright-alto sax, Tom Cora-cello and 'other instruments and drum programming' by Fred. I've always liked this album a lot, and until now it's been very...

Packaged in a beautiful mini-lp sleeve! "With (appropriate) extra tracks on each (all previously released somewhere, so no need to buy this just to have some unreleased song."

"Fred’s third LP for the US label Ralph Records, back in 1983, was a collection of gloriously direct pop songs, recorded on a four-track home studio system. Fred played almost all of the instruments: guitar, six string bass, Casio 101 keyboard, violin, xylophone, and home mades. There are some great production ideas, with...

''Famous as an improviser and a rock guitarist (Henry Cow, Art Bears, Residents, Massacre, Skeleton Crew), Fred Frith is still highly under-rated as a composer. Since relocating to Germany in the early 90s, Frith has composed soundtracks for a number o...

"14 pieces originally written for dance and other practical situations, here reassigned and reconstructed for choreographer Amanda Miller and the Nederland Dans Theater. These are loop-based, textural, mood pieces, and invocations of spaces and landscapes, with some fine steel guitar playing. Mostly this is Fred multi-instrumenting, with pianist Daan Vanderwalle, percussionist Willie Wynant, saxophonist Lotte Anker, the Arte Sax and Arditti Quartets, Kiku Day (playing occasional shakuhachi), and...

Gravity is one of Fred's most enduring & endearing works. It was his first post- Henry Cow solo album, and he recorded it with the backing of The Muffins on one side of the original album and Samla Mammas Manna on the other + Marc Hollander. It's the c...

Gravity is one of Fred's most enduring & endearing works. It was his first post-Henry Cow solo album, and he recorded it with the backing of The Muffins on one side of the original album and Samla Mammas Manna on the other. It's the closest thing to a progressive rock disc that Fred has ever released and it's a tuneful yet...

In the almost 30 years since this was released, so much has happened, and artists like Keith Rowe and Derek Bailey have become relatively well known, so that the shock of this record back then is hard to imagine now. But it was shocking, believe me. "H...

"In 1996, at the end of a two year residency, Fred organised an event at L'Ecole Nationale de Musique de Villeurbanne in France involving as many of the students as possible, grouped according to their departments - early music, rock, African drumming...

Its a real pleasure to hear a new album of Freds songs. Hes rather shy about his singing, but he shouldnt be; he sounds like a cross between David Byrne, Christoph Anders and Robert Wyatt. The songs often make use of samples from well-known sources, an...

Originally released as part of the double vinyl lp "Technology Of Tears" in 1986, Propaganda was substantially shortened so as to fit onto a single lp side. Now, the music has been reconstructed from the original two track masters as is now heard as originally intended for the 1st time!

"Sonic manna...5 out of 5 stars"- Alternative Press

“In 1979, guitarists Fred Frith and Henry Kaiser made an album titled With Friends Like These... on the Metalanguage label. It was one of the defining documents of the downtown avant-garde scene, a collection of improvised duets on which both players essentially redefined the sound of the guitar, Frith with his physically altered (and sometimes beaten) instruments, and Kaiser with his virtuosic and harmonically adventurous technique...
