Faust

Does anybody know much about the German group Faust. They were big in the 70s & Ive heard 2 or 3 of their songs. Ive tried to download their tunes but have not had much luck.

I've heard of them because, of course, I listen to alot of German bands from the 70s: Neu!, Harmonia, Can, Kraftwerk, Cluster. But, I haven't heard any of Faust's music.

I recently sold Fausts first album on ebay. The silver labelled embossed polydor version (first pressing) with XRay clear vinyl cover. LP was clear vinyl too. With clear vinyl lyric sheet. In near mint condition. Got a very nice price for it too !!

The album was one of the worst pieces of rubbish i've heard in all my life. Just awful. I did however mp3 it before i let it go.

Faust are okay, I like Neu! a lot though. Neu! 1975 is fantastic, one of my favorite ever albums.

I liked their song Faust 72. It was made famous by the Oceans 11 or 12 soundtracks, that's were I first heard it.

I have been listening to quite a bit of Faust recently. I don't see much similarity between Faust and Air but I have tremendous respect for both of them.

If you wanted to get a sampler of Faust, try their Patchwork CD. They are touring in 2010.
