Uwe Nettelbeck – R.I.P. (Faust V repost)

It’s with great sadness that I report that Uwe Nettelbeck has passed. Uwe is well known as the founder and recording engineer behind German titans Faust. In honor of Mr. Nettelbeck, I’m bumping a post from back in November back to the top regarding the unreleased Faust V record. And while you’re browsing the local record store, purchase the Faust reissues that are on Collector’s Choice. Strongly recommended.

Faust – V

This bootleg has been making the rounds on the internet, so I thought I’d post 7/8 of the release for all y’all out there. It’s funny, I saw Faust back in ’93 or ’94 here in Atlanta at a Table of the Elements festival and found them to be insufferable. This "insufferable" opinion of mine has been recinded, but I still don’t think it was anything to write home about. Of course, being the terrible nerd I was at the time, I was more interested in seeing Thurston Moore and Jim O’Rourke feedback their guitars for an hour. Wow, I was such a dope.

Good ‘ol Brian Turner over at FMU wrote an eye-full and instead of cuttin’ and pastin’, why not go over and peep what he has to say. Damn, this is why I love mp3 technology over that rickety old tape trading mind-set I was in back in my early 20’s.
