Faust Is Last = Ltd Deluxe Digipack = (CD)
Faust on "Faust is Last" are: Hans Joachim Irmler, Jan Fride, Steven W. Lobdell, Lars Paukstat, Michael Stoll. If faust announce a last record after 40 years then it might be a good idea to open up the ears, especially when the cover art is one big reference to their first record. The x-rayed 'fist' appears again, this time with the fingers slightly more opened. 40 years lie between the two records. 40 years of many different line ups, record companies, financial disasters, artistic failures and successes. Whatever can happen to a band has happened to Faust. In that sense they are not an unusual group of musicians. What is unusual is that each project, each record, each concert over the last 40 years has been different. On the very first record they made clear (on clear vinyl) that they were in it for destruction. "All You Need Is Love" and "Satisfaction" symbolically were set fire to. That same fire you will hear on this new and last Faust record. The circle will be closed by more circular music. A music that seems to come out of nowhere, sonic descriptions rather than songs. Timeless and not rooted in specific places and/or traditions. Maybe influenced by Cage's idea of chance, Dada, cut-ups, Sun Ra's free jazz organ playing and the second attempt after the German-American Monks to represent 'a rock group as total artwork'. Faust in 1970 and in 2010 sound aggressive and 100 percent oriented towards the future. There is not a glimpse of nostalgia in "Faust Is Last". Turn up the volume and listen to this first, new and last Faust record very loud!
