Some notes on this particular Faust gig from head honcho, Jean-Herve Peron:

This tour April/May 1994 was the  first Faust  USA tour…Jeff Hunt of TotE ( Table of the Elements label)  invited us . You will hear his voice on track  3 [not played this time - maybe next time], wishing us  a good gig in Oslo . I had broken my hand  but managed to do the show with three fingers which I  had freed from the cast 😊 …So Zappi and me  packed a few things and together wth Carina Varain as our tour manager  ( god, it was ever so good to have her with us as she solved many many infrastructural problems on that tour ! ) , also Rolli Blunck , a friend who I worked with , building sets for foto and flm shootings , as stage manager, welding on stage  and explosions expert. ,,,and… Jeanne-Marie . She was 4 years old at the time and VERY excited at the all luggage belts of all airports  we went through … she could not wait for  grabbing our suitcases  as if it was Xmas everytime …I recall a very “ USA” experience : we had rented a “ normal” car to do the first gigs ( Atlanta etc…)  but we got a free upgrade to a Lincoln Continental ! nice ..;)

On the tour ,  Steven Wray Lobdell joined us with his fantastic/crazy guitar  and we were very lucky to have also Scott McLeod joining us , such a good sound engineer , such a grand person.

On that tour  we had the honor to meet and jam with  lots of  great muscians : AMM, Barbara Manning, Michael Morley, Sonic Youth, Tony Conrad , Keiji Haino.

IN San Francisco , we were introduced to Erling Wold on piano , Stephen Kent and Mark Growden on didgeridoos. ..definitely enriching !
