this is a link from WFMU (them, again) to clips from a 6-hour German TV documentary on this time -- it's not YouTube -- and i'm not sure if they're all working, 'tho the Guru Guru thrash is

I finally caught up with most of the last wave of Can cds, now they've upgraded and reissued them all again! :cry:

I've always managed to remain ignorant of Faust somehow...I have the Faust Tapes and always love it when I put it on, but then have never sought out the other ones...sometimes used copies of Faust IV pop up in the local record bins.

Anyone else listen to Karlheinz Stockhausen? Irmin Schmidt of Can was a pupil of his. I have a couple of things by him - more like electronic new classical music, unclassifiable and otherworldly!

Next time you see Faust IV, grab it. For me, it's a mighty, mighty album & their best.

I wonder how many of us had a Merry Krautrock Christmas.
Uwe Nettelbeck died last week, producer and inspiration for Faust, here's a very nice appreciation by Brian Turner, WFMU; with comments and useful links, as is their way: http://blog.wfmu.org/freeform/2007/01/u ... beck_.html

I listened to The Faust Tapes again last night, and it had my head pressed to the speakers for 43 minutes. Reviving this thread with sordid excitement, and self-indulgence of ordering The Wumme Years box set!!

The Faust Tapes, even more than first, the clear album, is for me the essence of Faust.
I've been listening to this over and above much else by choice recently:

..and it's got a good deal of The Faust Tapes about it—collaged snips that go here and not there, deeply psych undertones—and it actually has noises that you won't here anywhere else other than on an album from the early 70s by Faust.

Thogs!
for the Broadcast. Reminds me of Delia Derbyshire/White Noise as well.

I am ashamed to say, I've never even heard the first Faust LP. Only Tapes, So Far and IV.

I was feeling sort of sick last night when I listened, and it made me even woozier. :D

Another vote for Circle from me. Only heard 5 of their 20-odd studio albums but 'Forest' is my favourite, so far. Great to listen to in the middle of the night - http://youtu.be/24sXH8CALLU - http://youtu.be/oOaHzKf_eFQ

They vary style quite a bit. This is from their 2010 album 'Rautatie' - http://youtu.be/HblGXkf2LdY

Neu!, Faust & Can (in their prime) were all brilliant. Same for Kraftwerk, from the early days right to Computer World.
They're all ok in the right mood but I could happily never hear an album by Cluster, La Düsseldorf or Harmonia again.
