Boomkat Product Review:
This live album starts in true Faust style: with a recording of the soundcheck. Yes, rather than getting straight into the set itself (recorded at last year's Avant Garde Festival, held in Jean-Herve Peron's back garden) you get three minutes of nonesense and improvised singing captured on-the-fly as a sound engineer tweaks his settings. It actually sounds rather good. Next comes the live set proper, with highlights including the barely held together kraut-funk of 'Es Ist Mir Kalt', the lively avant-swing of the tellingly titled 'Improvisation' and the nervous stammering of 'Shempal Buddha'. There's a guest performance from Steven Stapleton of Nurse With Wound, although his contributions aren't necessarily audible: he's credited with "paintbrush & canvas" for what we can presume to be a live Aktionist take on Watercolour Challenge, happening in accompaniment to the searing Black & Decker noises and deep drum grooves of 'Two Painters Painting'. Nurse With Wound take the helm (with help from various members of Faust) on the closing piece 'Rock And Roll Session', which is just plain weird, held together principally, it would seem, by fragmented shouting and a strange, slippery Far Eastern hip hop groove which eventually succumbs to waves of noise and feedback. A typically Faustian live album, in complete disarray and governed by combustive spontaneity.
