"There are several kinds of borrowing music: the witty quotation or the sophisticated interpretation… And also the miserable plagiarism.
In the album ‘On the Way to Wümme, A Tribute Album to Faust’ many artists have been invited to play some Faust pieces their own ways as a hommage to our art. I feel most honoured by their respective works."
We are a selection of various artists from many spaces on the planet who have joined this humble development to return the favour Faust gave to us. Their avant-garde, shocking, creative compositions made up of out of tune sections, electronic experiments, dadaist lyrics and psychedelic innovations have marked our ears forever as some of the best compositions in rock history. We pay tribute to them and reimagine some of our favourite Wümme-born group tunes rearranged and adapted to the new 21st century sound, exploring all musical possibilities. The artwork was made by an artist similarly inspired by the challenges brought to light through Faust's cathartic music.
This non-commercial production does not generate economic profit to anybody because its main objective is to promote our individual projects and Faust art as well, which is not as popular as it should be. This album is not only a tribute to one of greatest bands ever but it is also a union between more than twenty international artists with music as the only language in common, because it is one way of peace.
Special thanks to Jean-Hervé Peron, Zappi Diermaier and Hans-Joachim Irmler for their respective kindness and interest in this project, which is dedicated to them and all the people who have been in Faust (special mention to Rudolf Sosna, R.I.P.)
With respect to the Faust compositions, we hope you enjoy the music, and please also respect the artists, most of us are amateur musicians and our works have been made with precarious tools.
