Pixies/Frank Black/the Catholics/Black Francis
All 20+ albums of it. He's had his ups and downs, and I'll even cop to a couple of the records being pretty bad but I'm still all for them. He's...
I saw Crosby, Stills and Nash about a year ago and he sounded absolutely incredible. He completely blew the other two out of the water vocally. How was he sounding at the Bridge School benefit?
Aaron Axelsen said they'd announce it on 11/17
Anybody have any parking tips for the Independent?
Sounds interesting. Might get me a little more excited about Andro Queen.
Is Frank singing "In Heaven" again or is it new Kim?
I heard last night's print was limited to 50, or something very small like that. I don't know if it's going to be that way every night or not.
You never can tell if you're going to get an encore from Frank Black. He used to get kind of tantrumy which led to lot of encoreless shows and walk offs, but that seemed to have stopped over the...
The new songs sound very similar in tone and production to Black Francis's last album, NonStopErotik, though they are better than pretty much everything on that one (with a couple of exceptions). I...
"the band issued the four-song “EP-1” early on Tuesday, the first in a series of mini-releases it plans to put out sporadically over the next 15 months."
from today's New York Times article
Joey Santiago's vine of the practice space/set list
That's a lot of songs!
Just a heads up on this, just saw them in SF and his voice is completely shot. He was apologizing profusely the entire show and they only played for about forty minutes. It was still a pretty good...
Thom Yorke Launches Music Streaming Service Mere Days After Criticizing Spotify
Anyone have an opinion on Shoah? I'm considering picking it up during the current Barnes & Noble sale, but it's clearly something of a commitment.
I don't think we can answer that until we know whether he actually meant Indian or Native American.
her facebook page, it's a few statuses down now. Despite the hour she said she'd give it, it's still up.
Some fairly blunt words from Mrs. Black
"I will say this now, and then take down my post in exactly one hour:
Regarding the past nine years: If anyone thinks it was easy for the other Pixies to...
A second Breeders show at the Fillmore was announced for 8/28
Black's done this thing every now again for the last few years where he tries to be Mark E Smith and it just doesn't work, unfortunately this is one of those times.
Where did you get that it's Jeremy Dubs? That's likely, but I hadn't heard anything about that yet. It sounds like Violet Clarke to me.
EDIT: I just saw Black Francis say it was Jeremy Dubs. ...
This reminds me a lot of one of my least favorite of his solo songs, "the Suess", I think the sing talk thing was a bad idea for the coming out single. That said, ALL RIGHT!
Here are the rest of the North American dates, in case anyone's interested.
Sep 20 Doug Fir Lounge Portland, OR
Sep 21 Tractor Tavern Seattle, WA
Sep 23 Lincoln Hall Chicago, IL ...
Someone just sent me a scientific protocol to go over and it contains the phrase "little lone". Seriously.
I just did a search and it seems I'm the only person on the board who's mentioned Tony Molina. I'm really surprised that this album hasn't caught on at all here.
Tony Molina - Dissed and...
Kim Shattuck from the Muffs will most likely be replacing her.
I've loved everything from them so far, I hope they make it stateside soon.
Tony Molina - Dissed and Dismissed
This album is 12 minutes long and it's absolutley incredible from front to back, seriously give it a listen
Well, I'm married so I'm not really worried about the girl to guy ratio, but it's heartening to hear that I won't necessarily feel like an old man in a sea of shit faced 18 year olds.
As a man of nearly 30 I'm too old to go to Pop Scene under pretty much any circumstance, correct? There is a band playing in July that I'd really like see, but last time I went was probably seven or...
I got $85 tickets for Oakland. I was totally shocked, didn't expect to get them at all.
"If you don't judge my gold chains, I'll forget the iron chains"
I wasn't expecting that guest verse.
Heads up for those of you hoping to score the $85 tickets for the Stones; those tickets are not available on the regular Ticketmaster on sale site, you have to follow a link from the band's tour page...
Marky Ramone and Andrew WK at the Independent on sale now. If it can't be Joey or Dee Dee, I think AWK is a great choice for lead singer. I think this show is going to be a lot of fun.
Street parking in that area is limited and sketchy.
I didn't go, but I keep up with this stuff. Here's the setlist:
The Holiday Song
Ed is Dead
Men in Black
I Heard Ramona Sing (dedicated to Joey Santiago)
When They Come To Murder Me
Doesn't sound like the Winters I know.
Abbabubba isn't an album, it's a compilation of throw away demos and wasn't widely released. While I admit it's not good, it does have a couple bright spots.
Well one thing is for sure, Black Francis has wanted to make a Pixies album for the last nine years and has gone so far as to demo many songs (several of which he's released in one form or another...
Being as that's all Kim stuff and five years old at its newest I don't think any of it is a good indication of what a Pixies record will sound like, even Bam Thwok.
Earlier Black Francis posted a couple pictures of the Pixies from 1988 on Facebook/Twitter, and a few minutes ago his wife, Violet Clark, posted the following on her Facebook page (she's already...
I posted some speculation about this in the default thread a while back, Frank and Joey were recording at Gil Norton's studio for a couple months and various involved parties (mostly Frank's wife)...
Where is this from?
Old people like to sit down.
I'm late on this one, but I just want to go ahead and say Heinrich is probably the best character ever.
That was a top three set of that weekend for me. They were so much fun.
