Tony Conrad with Faust ‎"Outside The Dream Syndicate" 1973

The violinist and composer Tony Conrad made a true masterpiece with the german krautrockers Faust in 1973. Outside The Dream Syndicate is definitely not for everyone, with only two long and epic tracks Conrad take John Cale's viola work with the Velvet Underground (Venus In Furs, Black Angel's Death Song, Heroin, European Son) two steps forward into the world of drone. The music is spellbinding, monotonous and hypnotic, not groovy at all, but true art! There are numberous of limited reissues of this LP (on compact disc also) out there - just pick one of them and get loose!
