Fourth album by one of the most experimental and demanding German groups of the '70's. This album from 1973 is not easy to describe but it's certainly more subdued and conventional than the previous album 'Faust Tapes' though it's still a far cry from what anyone outside the German avant-garde rock scene was doing and still always challenging. Unfortunately, it would be the last album the group recorded prior to them reforming.

The first and second album by German band Faust are perhaps their best. Released in 1971 and 1972 respectively they feature some of the weirdest music ever recorded. Mixing every possible musical style from pseudo psych through jazz, folk, rock, and electronic (plus genres that don't yet have a name yet!) these albums are both bewildering and mind blowing at the same time. File next to Kraftwerk, Can and Neu! as the originators of the German '70's sound. Landmarks!

Mid-90s album, repressed at last! Produced by Jim O'Rourke. "From 1971 to 1975, Germany's Faust carved a megalithic reputation as the greatest avant-garde group of the era. Formed in the spirit of the May '68 uprisings, they inspired the term 'Krautrock,' influenced generations of subsequent bands, and to this day define an entire genre. In 1994, Table of the Elements brought the reclusive Faust to America for the first time, taking them on tour and orchestrating their return to the studio. The result is Rien, the first studio recordings from Faust in over 20 years. With major contributions from producer and performer Jim O'Rourke (Sonic Youth), as well as guest members Keiji Haino (Fushitsusha), Steven Wray Lobdell (Redford-David Triad) and Michael Morley (The Dead C), Faust have managed to create a record as unflinchingly audacious and uncompromising as their earliest work. An aggressive collection of electronic pastiche, musique concret, power tools and group improvisation results in an extraordinary return by one of the seminal experimental ensembles of all time. Out-of-print since 1995, this the first and finest of the records by the 90s-era Faust, notoriously packaged entirely in silver, with spoken credits hidden on the CD."
Faust were a part of the genre known as Krautrock: progressive, avant-garde proto-electronica from Germany, whose other proponents included Can, Neu! and Kraftwerk. "Faust IV" was originally released in 1973; this release features the remastered album + a bonus disc containing Peel sessions and previously unreleased tracks.
The follow-up to the legendary "clear" lp, this came in a similar shocking package (an all black no info sleeve and record, with a set of ten inserts ) and contained further musical invention from the twisted minds of Diesmaier, Irmler, Peron and Sosna.A fractured masterpiece that further expanded their ground-breaking approach to music making, crossing and mixing styles in their unique Faust way. "It’s A Rainy Day, Sunshine Girl", "No Harm" or "So Far" are just some of the mythical titles featured on a record that’s been changing hands for increasingly obscene amounts of money on the usual collectors circles (record conventions, specialised lists) for the last 20 years. A key piece in the Faust history.Strictly limited issue of 300 copies, including also the legendary "So Far" single as bonus tracks, featuring a very different takes of the title track and It’s A Bit Of Pain, which later resurfaced on a totally different version on Faust IV. With the original set of coloured inserts in a 12" booklet..

Thirty two page booklet and liner notes from Jean-Herve Peron.
