  • his solo stuff as frank black is probs better than the pixies
  • I prefer the more punkier direction from "trompe le monde" and his first 3 solo records to the first 3 pixies albums,a contrario to most pixies fans.
  • Read the MOJO bit on Pixies, Frank's a smart guy. And what the band did for the miners in Chile was admirable, to say the least.
  • [url=]Doolittle>Trompe Le Monde>Bossanova>Surfer Rosa or Surfer Rosa>Bossanova>Trompe Le Monde>Doolittle[/url] or what are your faves? Join tha debate!

  • He's the Nathan Lane of pastry apologists
  • he's like the john lennon of alt-rock !
  • The best musician ever.
  • Is it selfish that although I've seen Pixies and will do again... that I really want to see him do a tour again playing his Frank Black/Black Francis stuff?
