Faust – Krautrock

A huge, relentless slab of Avant-Rock from the mighty Faust. This opened their 4th album. 1973’s ‘Faust IV’. Their 4th album was their only for Branson’s Virgin label, and pulled back slightly from the arch radical stance they had taken thus far. However, ‘Krautrock’ is as uncompromising as anything they have ever produced and is a bold start to any album. The fact that they decided to have fun with the derogative term that the British press had mustered for the wave of avant-psychedelia coming from Germany by using such a behemoth, is testament to Faust’s idiosyncratic take on Krautrock.
