LUSTFAUST: A FOLK ANTHOLOGY 1976-1981
Curated by Jamie Shovlin from the Archives of Mike Harte and Murray Ward

June 15 – July 22, 2006, Freight + Volume



This statement, taken from the only existing Lustfaust website, was my formal introduction to Lustfaust so I see no reason why it should not be yours.
The pair responsible for the website, Mike Harte and Murray Ward, have been researching the legacy of Lustfaust for almost a decade and the website,
originally intended to encapsulate the band’s history and musical legacy, has evolved into something far more personal for its subject, creators and
users. Ever since my first encounters with Lustfaust, the archivists and with the transatlantic rabble of Lustfaust fans actively engaged in the website’s
assembly, the prospect of an actual physical exhibition has appealed to us all.

Lustfaust was an experimental noise band active in West Berlin during the late seventies and early 1980s composed of a group of ession musicians. Featuring a Japanese jazz drummer, Matsushita ‘Bobby’ Kazuki, a Belgian guitarist/multi-instrumentalist, Guido an Baelen, a German bassist, Hans Berger, and the California- born, German/American Peter Kruger, the band was a curiously nternational mixture, initially formed through a mutual distaste for the inoffensive music that it was for the most part their job to produce. Their combination of an aggressive on-stage presence, instrumentation through found objects such as cement mixers
and pneumatic drills, and the use of an anti-capitalist community-based model of distribution (if you sent the band a blank cassette, they would return it with their latest release) spawned the Dadaist Geniale Dilettanten movement of the early 1980s and pioneered he burgeoning cassette culture of the late seventies.”
