Don’t Die Just Yet welcome Faust

by Ben Davis on 4 May, 2010 | 0 comments

On Thursday the 13th May 2010 Don’t Die Just Yet! will welcome the legendary German experimental rock band that is Faust to it’s stage.

Inventors of ‘Kraut Rock‘, iconoclasts extraordinaire, 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. Virtually imprisoned by Polydor in their own studio for two years, they were able to revolutionize the whole process of musical production; they improvised with Industrial noise, generated bizarre hypnotic grooves, indulged in shockingly wilful studio-based collages, and dabbled with every conceivable musical genre, sometimes simultaneously! Every now and then they found time for a burst of satirical pop, or occasional waves of delicate ambience.

Amongst those Faust have strongly influenced we must count Brian Eno, Joy Division, Cabaret Voltaire, Test Department, Neubauten, My Bloody Valentine, Julian Cope and a host of Industrial and Techno bands. The music has lost none of it’s immediacy or relevance – it sounds as if it was recorded last week, not forty years ago.

Tickets are £10 advance and doors are 7.30pm. Over 14′s welcome. Tickets available from: Yales Café Bar, Wxm – 01978 358780, seetickets.com, ticketline.co.uk – 0870 444 5556.
