Faust is a German experimental Krautrock band.
("faust" is German for "fist")
The Group was formed in 1971, original members was, Werner "Zappi" Diermaier, Hans Joachim Irmler, Arnulf Meifert, Jean-Hervé Péron, Rudolf Sosna and Gunter Wüsthoff.
Faust broke up in 1975 after Virgin had rejected their fifth album.
In 1990 Irmler, Diermaier and Péron reunited. Faust now exists in two completely different incarnations, both active and each reflecting different aspects of the original group.
Uwe Nettelbeck, Faust's creator and producer, died 17 January 2007.
