The Faust Tapes / Faust (1973)

The Faust Tapes / Faust (1973)
Label: Virgin (UK)
Catalog#: VC 501

Credits: The music on this album, drawn from Faust's own library of private tapes, was recorded informally and not originally intended for release. However, since British interest in the group has been unusually great, it has been decided to make some of this unofficial material available to the public in this country. These tapes been left exactly as they were recorded - frequently live - and no post-production work has been imposed on them. The group wish to make it clear that this not to be regarded at their third album, but a bonus release - on sale at the current price of a single - to mark their signing with Virgin Records, for whom they will shortly be recording their next official album. The Faust Tapes reveals Faust at their most personal and spontaneous. It's a unique glimpse behind the scenes of a group which European and British critics have hailed as one of themost exciting and exploratory in the world.

MZUI / bcGilbert/gLewis/russellMills (1982)
Label: Cherry Red (UK)
Catalog#: BRED 27
Format: Vinyl, LP

This record and the accompanying selected photographs are the result of a recording installation project which, once set into operation, provided an opportunity to utilize and experiment with various sound sources. "Instruments" and objects, constructed from diverse materials found in and around The Waterloo Gallery and Studios, were daily introduced throughout the three week period. A number of microphones were and record the environment and its resonance to the manipulated, incidental and accidental sounds from without and within the gallery.

Photography – Martin Axon, Angela Conway, Graham Lewis
Sound Equipment - Brittania Row
Mixed at Blackwing Studio
Engineers - Eric Radcliffe, John Fryer

Notes: Comes in a clear plastic jacket, wrapped in a 6 pages 12" foldable printed sheet with photos, inside a black sleeve.
The exhibition was held at Waterloo Gallery, 23 Gray Street, London SE1 between 8th and 31st of August 1981.

A: Mzui (Part One)
B: Mzui (Part Two)

Wireメンバー二人と、David SylvianやEno、NINのアルバムジャケットで知られる画家/グラフィックデザイナーのRussell Millsが"Waterloo Gallery"にて行ったサウンドインスタレーションをライヴ録音したもの。
Bruce GilbertとGraham Lewisは、ポップ志向だったColin Newmanに対し、"Dome"、"BC Gilbert & G Lewis"、"Cupol"等で実験的でミニマルなアヴァンギャルドな側面を"Wire"においても担っていた。1979リリースのWire 3rd Album"154"の初回付属の7"EPで最初の実験がリリースされるが、それはWireの有名な発言「ロックじゃなければ何でもいい」さながら、シンプルでポップなメロディーの断片をテープエフェクトとフィールドレコーディング(掃除機の音等)でミックスするというものだった。

B3: Meurtre À L'Extincteur  0:47

B5: Lunatic Asylum  3:20

「勝手にしやがれ」よりはましなタイトルだが、原題「キャベツの頭を持つ男」→邦題「くたばれキャベツ野郎」。”Melody Nelson”と似た傾向だがレゲエもありより多彩。
アナログは兎に角CDタイトルすら手に入りにくかった10年ほど前に"Cannabis”、”Melody Nelson”、”Love On The Beat”で彼を知り今に至るが、過去リリースされたアルバムCD20枚(未発表含む)BOXが、死後20周年という何が何だかわからない形でリリースされるとは夢にも思わず。二葉百合子じゃないんだから20枚組なんてどうしたら良いのか。
