Art-rock band FACS returns with ‘Still Life in Decay’ (Episode 824)

Brian Case (singer/guitarist) of FACS joins me for a chat in advance of their new release, “Still Life in Decay.”

We met for hot dogs at Red Hot Ranch, ate depression dogs and talked about:
*FACS capturing the moment with each of the band’s annual releases.
*The upcoming record release shows at Empty Bottle.
*The tension that comes across in the band’s music.
*The very specific difference in the “A Side” and “B Side” of “Still Life in Decay.”
*The band’s “Chicago” sound.
*The band’s focus on putting the music first; band faces and image second.
*Where a FACS song starts is rarely where it ends.
*What playing Riot Fest was like.
*What’s the best Jesus Lizard album?
