Maki Fujii (Soft Ballet) and Hisashi Imai (Buck-Tick) originally conceived Schaft as a one-off monikor for a song. The track was for a 1991 Japanese compilation titled "Dance 2 Noise 001". After a few sporadic live dates, they decided to bring Raymond Watts (Pig, KMFDM) into the line-up and record a full album. Collaborations with Autechre, Coil, Meat Beat Manifesto and others brought a cult following to the project. 1994 was their only full year of activity. However in 2001, Schwein surfaced as a somewhat unofficial continuation of Schaft.
