No more Pixies - Boo! Black Francis going solo - yay! And he’s calling himself Frank Black and covering The Beach Boys… wha?

Actually Frank Black’s self-titled debut is not that far from being another Pixies album. It sounds more than a bit like a Pixies album, and it features Pixies guitarist Joey Santiago, and Eric Drew Feldman, who played keyboards on Trompe Le Monde. So if you’re into denial, really it’s like they never split up at all - very yay!
