Tony Conrad with Faust Outside the Dream Syndicate. Tony Conrad was very interesting artist involved in film, theater, music, writing and teaching. In the sixties he was briefly connected to Lou Reed and John Cale before they founded Velvet Underground. His experimental sixties band had been called The Dream Syndicate. This, his collaboration with krautrockers Faust from 1973. was his first music on record and it is minimalistic drone music that was highly influential on many post rock bands. Great album.
