From The Observer's end of year reviews.

The German band Faust's gig at the Carling Academy in Newcastle was a neo-Dadaist assault on the senses; scaffolding bars thrown off the stage, sparks flying from a circular saw, a typical Faust gig, but also an astonishing experience. I had been waiting years to see Faust live, and they did not disappoint. The Newcastle Fire Brigade Brass Band appeared half way through, fitting in well to the proceedings. It was a great performance from a legendary band, which was much appreciated by a small but enthusiastic crowd.
