Mailing List People

The Faust-Pages site is nominally managed by me, Andy Wilson. In reality it's the result of the work of a great many people, not least of all the members of the Faust mailing list, whose love of the group and fine music, and whose work collecting reviews, scanning covers and the like, is behind much of what you'll find on these pages. If you are a member of the list, just contact the site authors to have your details added to this page. Don't forget to send a picture and any info you want included in your profile.
