REDCAT 631 West 2nd Street Los Angeles, CA 90012 Map and directions

Original Faust band-members Zappi Diermaier and Jean-Hervé Péron are joined by longtime collaborator Amaury Cambuzat of Ulan Bator for an evening of essential krautrock.

Echt pioneers alongside Can and Kraftwerk, Faust created music in the ’70s that sounds like it was made yesterday. They improvised with industrial noise, generated bizarre hypnotic grooves, indulged in shockingly willful collages, dabbled in every conceivable musical genre, and found time for bursts of satirical pop and waves of delicate ambience.

Enthusiastically embraced by a host of music notables—including Brian Eno, Joy Division, Sonic Youth, My Bloody Valentine and Julian Cope—Faust turned on a host of industrial and techno bands, and revolutionized studio music production along the way.
