Faust in Schenectady, New York

A rare, upcoming Faust show in New York capitol area.

Formed in Hamburg, Germany, in 1969, and considered the inventors of “Kraut Rock,” Faust are key figures in 20th Century music. In the early 70’s, along with Can and Kraftwerk, they re-invented pop music as a specifically European art form. In their own studio, they revolutionized the whole process of musical production; they improvised with industrial noise, generated bizarre hypnotic grooves, indulged in studio-based collages and dabbled with every conceivable musical genre, sometimes simultaneously. Faust is credited with strongly influencing the music of Brian Eno, Joy Division, Cabaret Voltaire, Test Department, Neubauten, My Bloody Valentine, Julian Cope, Sonic Youth and a host of Industrial and Techno bands.
