This is Faust, playing in Detroit! Holy krautrock, Batman, Faust — one of the most inventive musical combos in the history of the planet. A band whose songs often prefigured entire genres, years in advance. In case you don’t know, in their last two decades-plus, since they’ve come out of retirement, they’ve presented a goofier and looser vibe in their live shows. But consider that in their early 1970s heyday they were primarily a studio band, and that this version has only two original members out of the initial five-piece setup. That’s not to slight them in the least; these goofy old dudes are always worth a gander, and who knows when they’ll next be in our fair city?
