Faust

They may not be as well-known as Kraftwerk, Neu! and Can, but Faust are among the founding fathers of krautrock, the avant-garde music scene that emerged in Germany between the late 1960s and early 1970s. It has all gone a bit tricky, however, because of the original line-up – Werner 'Zappi' Diermaier (drums), Hans Joachim Irmler (keyboards), Arnold Meifert (percussion), Jean Herve Peron (bass), Rudolf Sosna (guitar) and Güenter Wuesthoff (sax), who split in 1975 – only Irmler will be taking the stage in Barcelona, accompanied by his band. But, hey, better one than none if what we're talking about is a group that has been considered the inventor of industrial music, post-punk pioneer and even the godfathers of techno.
