Tale of two Blacks
I went to check out "Black Francis" the other night, and was treated to some great new songs. Frank cranked out his new "rock opera" Bluefinger, which is a concept album of sorts, as it is based on the life and death of Dutch artist/musician Herman Broot. They're are some great tunes on the new one including threshold aprehension. which sounds a great deal like a Pixies song, particularly because of the female backing vocals. As a bonus, we got a celebrity Frank Black Fan sighting as, the other Black, Jack Black was there sporting a blonde short hair-do, for his upcoming film "Tropical Thunder".
