German Krautrock legends faUSt will be embarking on their Vagabondages in North America
tour in July 2018! faUSt is an experimental rock band which came out of the Hamburg music scene in the late sixties. Formed in Wümme in 1971, faUSt were the first band to have the term "krautrock" applied to their music, and to the genre that ensued. German for "fist," and also the protagonist of Goethe's eponymous play, faUSt were one of the first bands to use the recording studio as an instrument. Their live appearances were explosive (literally), as the pinball machines and jack-hammer legends detail.
Featuring founding member Jean-Hervé Péron, faUSt's North American tour begins on July 11th in Chicago. There will be line-up changes and guest additions at various points of the tour - founding member and drummer Werner 'Zappi' Diermaier will join the ensemble in Brooklyn on July 22 to the end of the tour. Also featured with the band is guitarist Amaury Cambuzat.
Hello faUSt friends in Canada and USA!
As for 1994! and for the fifth time now, faUSt will ride again the highways of your continent, up and down from Chicago/IL to Montreal/QC, across and back, from Brooklyn, NY to L.A., CA, spreading the good words of DadaKrautRock.
Here all musicians involved in the tour... well, almost all because we do have "last-minute guests"...
In the North East faUSt will be: Jean-Hervé Péron aka art-Errorist (voc, strings, wind and tools), Amaury Cambuzat (guit, voc), Tim Barnes (drums and sounds). In Chicago
we will share the stage with Bobby
Conn (guit, voc), Monica
Boubou (voc, violin) and Josh Johannpeter (drums). In Brooklyn we will meet up with Braden Diotte (bass and sounds)... and Zappi, yeah! That's "ze big man wiz ze big nose!" on drums, voc, tools and metal.
But wait: on the West Coast faUSt will fuse with the German/Spanish/Croatian all female dada-punk trio Ernsthafte Angelegenheiten. Yes, just call them "E.A." before your tongue get cramped.
Each day, each gig a new adventure, like vagabonds on tour... Rund ist schoen!!! - Jean-Hervé Péron
