BBC Sessions +

Label: ReR Megacorp

Format: CD

Genre: Experimental

In stock


The radio session was first broadcast 1/3/73, and is 20 minutes of pure Faustian hell. The Lurcher is a kind of electric period Miles Davis slouching drum rhythm, augmented by stabs of horn and electric guitar. Krautrock is a 12-minute post Velvet Underground riff, drone and noise-driven meditation, far superior to the version on the Virgin release Faust IV. The session ends with Do So, an outrageously corny slice of sixties pop. The remaining 30 minutes of the CD is prime Faust, culled from the ReR LPs The Last LP and Munic and Elsewhere (which could not appear on the ReR CD release Faust- 71 Minutes for reasons of space).

They feature splattered repeating percussion, half heard voice-overs, stray dogs, renaissance music played by kazoos, the surreal song "We Are the Hallo Men", and alternative and wonderful versions of the classics So Far and Meer. This is essential listening, both for Faust fans and the as yet uninitiated.
