Faust – Knochentanz

This is a track that was previously released on ReR’s collection of Faust’s cutting room material called ‘Munich & Elsewhere’, where it was titled ‘Munic/Other’. This is another track that was originally destined to be on the ill-fated ‘Faust V’; an album that was going well until the band were refused money by Virgin Records and had to make a quick getaway from the Munich studio they recorded it at*. This is like the flip side to ‘Munic/Yesterday’; where that track is nasty, claustrophobic repetition (like the soundtrack to limbo), this one is more spacious and freeing.  The funky wah-wah ‘n’ scratchy guitar you get around the 10 minute mark is just wonderful. 1975.

The studio in question was Arabella-Hauses; Giorgio Moroder’s studio.
