Faust, redcat

Faust—the German band that helped launch the krautrock genre and inspired everyone from Brian Eno to Kraftwerk and Sonic Youth—revolutionized studio music when it hit the scene in 1971, for its reliance on industrial noise, sound collages, satirical pop and hypnotic improvisation. For one night ony, founding members Zappi Diermaier and Jean-Hervé Péron are joined onstage by longtime collaborator Amaury Cambuzat, of Ulan Bator, for an evening of "essential" krautrock. (Which means they're leaving the nonessential stuff back in the '70s where it belongs.)
