Profile
Faust (German: fist) are a German krautrock band. Formed in 1971 in Wümme, the group was originally composed of Werner "Zappi" Diermaier, Hans Joachim Irmler, Arnulf Meifert, Jean-Hervé Péron, Rudolf Sosna, and Gunther Wüsthoff, working with record producer Uwe Nettelbeck and engineer Kurt Graupner. Their cut-and-splice techniques were ground-breaking at the time, and they lasted until 1975 in their first incarnation. Starting in the 90s, various members started reuniting, with Diermaier and Péron the chief instigators. They have been joined by numerous other musicians, and in 2005 Diermaier and Péron joined with Olivier Manchion and Amaury Cambuzat from the French group Ulan Bator to form a new version of Faust. This group has existed in parallel with another Faust consisting of Hans Joachim Irmler, Steven Wray Lobdell, Lars Paukstat, Michael Stoll, and Jan Fride.
