First reissue of Faust's only 7", originally released only in Germany, France, and the UK in 1972. This reissue bears the original artwork and was remastered by Faust member Hans-Joachim Irmler from the original recordings. Both tracks are non-LP versions. It is said that "It's a Bit of Pain" was John Peel's favorite Faust track. Archive your music on vinyl! "So Far’ is an instrumental: a simple rhythm chugs along, a sax stabs away, guitars and synth wail in and out. It’s a mesmerising drone, that doesn’t sit still and never fails to please. ‘It’s a Bit of a Pain’ (said to be John Peel’s favourite Faust track) is another side of Faust: a gentle acoustic, piano-led ballad/song against which a noise momentarily intercedes and a piano tinkles and a fuzzy guitar trails away to the end. Both are sublime. Although nearly 40 years old these could be seen as historical [‘Krautrock’] curiosities and ones for the collection , but they sound fresh and modern even by today’s standards and a reminder as to how insipid much of today’s music is. Do yourself a favour and feed"
