Yes, cleverness abound at Zen right now. Frank black is pretty clever. Way more clever than I. Mine is simply the pretense of cleverness.
Anyhow, have you ever listened to the Pixies? If not, we may be able to still talk, and with counseling maybe even look each other in the eye again. Its up to you if I should be embarrassed about listening to the Pixies or if you should be embarrassed about not listening to them, but shit, am I digressing at a fantastic rate or what?
Here, let me level with you. I'm not so in the mood to describe these things or to be too fanciful about how I skirt around such things. I basically have a lot of things I want to share and not so much focus to really describe why they are as awesome as they are, or what particular meaning they held for me at one point or another.
So just trust me on this one. Or the whatever next few posts I get into. I'll try to make some sense of it, but if you've been coming here you know my tastes are eclectic and you know I wouldn't steer you wrong. At least not intentionally.
So, Frank Black was in the Pixies under the pseudonym Black Francis. Along with Kim Deal alot of the Pixies songs were written. Actually, I should rephrase that; Kim wrote songs, Frank wrote songs (otherwise known as Charles Thompson). You can find out all this shit on wikipedia, but essentially the last Pixies album, Trompe Le Monde, was entirely written by Black aka. Frank neé Charles....
You following? Well this is a really great follow up to Trompe Le Monde without the rest of the Pixies. Oh, and something about cool lyrics..
"Im just another ten percenter / My mind is like an ocean
My mind is like an ocean / Im hangin in the harbor
Im just driftin letting out the line / Im lettin out the driftin line"
Frankly (no pun intended) my money is all on Czar. But you know. It's in your hands now dear reader.
