Was Ist Das? hits the Sixteen!

Today is now 16 years of Was Ist Das?

Last year for the 15th, it was a label focused anniversary, because I was short of time and totally blocked on the writing front.

This year, it’s nothing but writing! I originally planned to have 16 reviews ready to go today but it exceeded that! Now up on our Features page are reviews of:

Expo 70, Eric Arn, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, Wreaths, Black Dice, Warrington-Runcorn New Town Development Plan, Cubs, Mind Maintenance, Laibach, Crazy Doberman, Daniel Vujanic, Yoshi Wada, Phew, —__–___, Yann Tierson, Wolves In The Throne Room, Kevin martin and Birds of Maya!

Right, its late, I’m off to bed. I’ll put up a video review of Can tomorrow

Vintage Faust Music Video!

This not just vintage Faust music but vintage visuals as Gunther Buskies of Bureau B explains: “While working on the Faust Boxset I asked every person involved in the project to please send me any material; photos, sketches, tapes or videos. Gunther Wüsthoff’s archive has been the one to provide us with the most striking visual gems; several film reels full of unseen material from the early 1970s, some documentary – some non related to Faust and some experimental visual sequences. This has been like finding a missing link to understanding the band members massive will to experiment with… art… in every manner. The sequences used for this video were filmed back in 1972 seem to fit perfectly to the track.”
