No Faust vs Dalek?
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

Gotta be Faust So Far, though, surely.

Got two or three by Faust but for the life of me I can't remember which ones or what they sound like - cue listening.

Think one of the ones I've got has got the newspaper looking cover.




Just checked it's the The Faust Tapes and also got So Far and Faust.


Can't remember anything about any of them, time for a listen

I remember a friend buying Faust Tapes. Virgin released it at a really cheap price to try and gain interest. It worked...he bought it and played it...once.
"The worst 49p I've ever spent" he said, going back to his Moody Blues albums

I disagree , they he kinda stayed true to the idea of Faust . Remarkably good sounding record all things considered.

Do we all approve of this update of T-Electronique though? It's a magnificent beast, imo.
