CURATOR:
LOCATION:Wümme, Germany

Formed in 1969 in Hamburg, Germany and considered the inventors of "Krautrock", iconoclasts extrordinaire Faust are key figures in 20th Century music. In the early '70s, along with Can and Kraftwerk, they re-invented pop music as a specifically European art-form. In their own studio they were able to revolutionize the whole process of musical production; they improvised with industrial noise, generated bizarre hypnotic grooves, indulged in shockingly willful studio-based collages, and dabbled with every conceivable musical genre, sometimes simultaneously.

The touring members of the 2009 US Faust tour are original members Jean-Herve Peron and Werner "Zappi" Diermaier, along with James Johnston (Gallon Drunk, Lydia Lunch, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds) and visual/video artist, painter, and musician Geraldine Swayne.
