F— the Facts’ Topon Das: ‘There’s No Real Reason to Do Anything We Do’

Fuck the Facts

Film and music are complementary mediums — hence soundtracks, scores and songs inspired by movies. For F— the Facts, known for their ability to grind your mind with unrelenting, mind-erasing speed and almost perverse brutality, guitarist Topon Das knew that his band’s latest album, ‘Disgorge, Mexico,’ had that visual component. That’s why filmmaker David Hall, who was actually in the band for all of a minute, made an accompanying short film whose only sound is the album!

“It was an idea I had before we even started recording ‘Disgorge Mexico,’” Das told Noisecreep. “I wanted a visual track for the entire album. We had worked with Dave before, and I knew he was the one to make it happen. He agreed, and here we are. There’s no real reason to do anything we do. We just do it because it’s the best things we can think of doing with our time.”

The film is almost sickening and certainly stomach-turning, as it features the actors playing with lots of bodily fluids that most of us don’t like to think about outside of our time in the bathroom. But it may very well attract a bit of a hipster art-loving — and dare we say pretentious? — crowd.

Das wasn’t oblique about the fact that the film has limited appeal. He said, “I guess if you’re some artsy fartsy music snob that likes to think [you're] weird and no one understands you, you’ll probably like this. If you do a lot of drugs or not enough drugs, you’ll probably hate it because it’s kind of hard on the senses. If you aren’t a metal fan, you’ll probably never even hear about this. And if you are a metal fan, you’ll probably just hate the idea that this exists. So basically, this film will appeal to everyone!”

While who takes to the film remains to be seen, the process taught the guitarist a series of important things, such as “set deadlines, don’t mow your lawn when it’s raining and always look both ways before jumping off a bridge.”

The trailer and other details are available at the official Web site of ‘Disgorge, Mexico.’
