King of Freaks, Stuart Maconie features The Faust Tapes in this week's show.

A fine example of 1970s German krautrock, it skips seamlessly from art-rock to folk and spoken word in a Zappa-esque collage.

The album was sold for just 49p by the newly formed Virgin Records and enabled Faust to "break" Britain.
