FAUZ't - From The Frozen South (CD)
Release Date: 08/11/09
New collaboration with Faust and Z'EV.
Faust were the certainly among the leaders of Germany's 'Krautrock' movement back in the early 70s. Ensconced in 'The Pantheon' forever as truly visionary artists, their early records still sound light-years ahead of their time 30+ years later. FROM THE FROZEN SOUTH features original Faust mainman Hans Joachim Irmler joining forces with the iconic 'scape artist/percussionist Z'EV at FAUST Studios. The topologically-charged results range from spacious and soothing through full-on digital brutality; each piece is subtly tinged with both artist's distinct & respective take on the out-rock they helped create. FROZEN SOUTH offers a glacial essence of the sounds these two legends have created & incorporated over the last 30 years, plus new ideas & experiments- each distilled through a once-in-a-lifetime collaboration. An incredible sonic journey made by two of the genre's pioneers to be sure; a monument to the avant garde, perhaps... but steadfastly, as always: of and for the People!
