FAUST

THE FAUST TAPES

SUPERIOR VIADUCT


Format: LP
Cata No: SV118

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, Faust rejected the Anglo-American norms of rock ’n’ roll
dubbed by the UK press with the semi-derogatory term “krautrock.” Faust would reach near-mythical status through a series of classic albums recorded
between 1970 and 1973 at their secluded Wümme studio.
As Dave Segalwrites 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-Hervé Peron’s playful
lyrics and this ecstatic, era-defining riff perfectly represent
Faust’s magical mischievousness.
