They also pioneered the burgeoning cassette culture of the late seventies until finally imploding in 1981. Upon being 're-discovered' by artists Jamie Shovlin, Mike Harte and Murray Ward, Guido van Baelen saw an opportunity for the music to gain the attention it deserved but Peter Kruger had no interest in letting the material ever see the light of day again. In late 2006, Schneider TM contacted Peter Kruger which ultimately led to a suprising collaboration as Schneider TM und Lustfaust releasing a 7" on MirrorWorldMusic. In 2007 Jamie Shovlin's gallery, Haunch of Venison, invited Schneider TM und Lustfaust to headline the opening of their Berlin gallery space and a band was quickly assembled featuring Guido van Baelen, Dirk Dresselhaus (Schneider TM, Angel, Locust Fudge, Hip Young Things, Mr. Schmuck's Farm), Michael Beckett (Kptmichigan, The Beautiful New Born Children, Tuesday Weld, The Eightfold Model, Super Reverb, Murray Ward (The Failed NASA Experiment, Ward, Warner/Ward, Warner/Ward/Teledu, dj_spleenbaby, Black Step-Dad), Euan Rodger (Black Carrot, Dragon Or Emperor, Superbompers Band, The Copperpot Journals, Fabulous Foxes) and Steve Linehan (Fredrick Stanley Star). From 2008 they have resumed gigging and recording - performing at the ICA, the Big Chill Festival and most recently for Artissima in Torino. Lustfaust now draws from a revolving line-up of Peter Kruger, Guido van Baelen, Murray Ward, Euan Rodger, Steve Linehan, Alex Williams (Fredrick Stanley Star), Peacho (Wooden Veil, Superbompers Band), Jamie Shovlin (Womb), Patrick Farmer (The Good Anna, Designer Babies, Birmingham Improvisers’ Orchestra, Call it a Clunes, Last of the Real Hardmen), Eleanor Mills and Peter Headset Disco.
