Faust - Something Dirty (2011)

Faust - legendary avant-garde recording artists who released incredible, ground-breaking records in the early 70s and broke up in 1975. But they never really went away and stayed busy under the radar. They officially reunited in the early 90's and released their first album after 20 years in 1995, the dense, monolithic RIEN. In the last few years the rejuvenated band, consisting of two original members and various collaborators, has been quite active, releasing C'EST COM...COM...COMPLIQUE in 2009. There is actually an alternate version of Faust featuring original member Hans Joachim Irmler that released the album FAUST IS LAST in 2010. The version of the band on SOMETHING DIRTY includes original members Zappi (drums) and Jean-Hevre Peron (bass). Although these artists parted ways and created two incarnations of Faust, they respect each other and don't seem interested in getting lawyers involved to fight over the name. Thank goodness!

SOMETHING DIRTY is the latest album and it has plenty of harsh, metallic industrial music and heavy, primitive drums. Lots of intense guitar washes and freak-outs. There's also a softer, eerie, almost sexy side to this album, thanks especially to the sensual vocals of new member Geraldine Swayne.

Maybe I'm just thrilled to have another new Faust album, but I find this music to be inviting, almost a "listener-friendly" version of Faust. However, only fans already familiar with their music are likely to feel this way. There is no real "shock of the new," but in its place is an exciting, satisfying listen for those who love Faust and are hungry for more. Certainly SOMETHING DIRTY is far removed from anything mainstream, full of strange sounds and intriguing left turns.

5.0 out of 5 stars More, please! February 19, 2011
By Achoo
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
According to the CD notes, this album was recorded live onto magnetic tape in the studio. There is definitely a "dirty", gritty, raw energy in the performances and a loose, gutsy, improvisational quality to the compositions. But, hey, this is Faust, so that isn't a bad thing. My only complaint is that just as track 7 is about to take another interesting turn, it suddenly ends and leaves you hanging. (Hmmmm... Could that be why it's called "Whet"?)

4.0 out of 5 stars Faust - 'Something Dirty' (Bureau B) April 25, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Another new offering from the long-running, legendary, ground-breaking German krautrock / experimental / progressive / Avant Garde / outside-the-box / (always) inventive band (enough labels for you?) Faust. Maybe not quite as breath-taking as their other new title - the 2-CD 'Faust Is Last', but still good. Tunes here that make this a keeper are "Tell The Bitch To Go Home", "Herbststimmung", the awesome seven-minute title track "Something Dirty", the eight-minute "Lost The Signal" (with a female vocalist) and the mind-scrambling (typical) Faust composition "La Sole Doree". Ignore any and all negative reviews you might spot on the information super-highway. After listening to 'Something Dirty', I am convinced that Faust has a lot to add to their (as it is) vast catalog.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mechanical clatter, dark shadows, restless heart March 23, 2011
Format:Audio CD
If Pete Frame drew a family tree of this experimental band, founded in 1971 in Germany, he'd face a challenge. The newest release comes with a respectable pedigree, from founders Jean-Hervé Péron on bass and Zappi Diermaier on drums, joined by Gallon Drunk guitarist James Johnston and vocalist-keyboardist Geraldine Swayne. The original band, which lasted officially until 1975, reformed in the early 1990s. It now has another wing, performing and recording under the same name. Despite or because of the complicated lineup and intricate changes, this trans-European quartet sounds impressively fresh and entertainingly bold. If PiL could have (should have?) continued with their own early innovations, inspired by Faust, then postpunk, combined with krautrock, Can's tribalism, Velvet Underground-influenced noise collages, and Patti Smith's free-form poetic jags would resemble this resurrected ensemble.

This is the fourth record from the Péron-Diermaier wing, as the band reinvented itself as a new group in 2004. They play with the fury of punks, the depth of post-punk, and with the imagination of psychedelia. Something Dirty roams over the terrain of the past forty-five years, rooted in the mid-1960s avant-garde, the late-1960s/early-1970s progressive and acid-rock movements, and the reactions of punk and its aftermath. Each track feels organic, so each remains distinctive, providing a rich range of moods.

The rousingly titled "Tell the Bitch to Go Home" opens with a homage to Peter Hook's descending bassline from Joy Division's "Shadowplay." This anchors a danceable propulsive krautrock tune that like the best of that genre I wished would never end.
