Previously at the ICA - Events

Oh yah! Lustfaust, originally an experimental noise band active in West Berlin during the late 70s and early 1980s have returned. And in anticipation of this re-appearance in the ICA's media mix tent at this year’s Big Chill festival the ICA has organized a warm up show featuring krautrock, free-jazz and experi-mentalism in equal measure.
Lustfaust haven't been heard since their brief comeback at Haunch Of Venison Gallery in Berlin last year (the results of which found their way onto a limited edition split 7" with Schneider TM): this is your chance to experience Lustfaust and leader Peter Kruger live, with a raft of contemporary musicians chosen by Lustfaust themselves.
Prepare yourself for fun – dada style – and discover a very special band whose approach to music has inspired countless contemporaries (think Bauhaus, think The Scorpions, think Tangerine Dream). Lustfaust, who operated an anti-capitalist community-based model of distribution throughout their career (send the band a blank cassette and they would return it with their latest release) combine aggressive on-stage presence with modern found-object instrumentation.
The supporting line up includes extreme visuals from the award wining Dandelion & Burdock and music from Black Carrot, the musical wing of the metal vegetarian movement. Plus we have DJing from Illustrated London Noise in the ICA bar – playing suitable slabs of rare vinyl.
