Frank Black

by Metroland Staff on February 7, 2013


His hits deal with Dali and digging for fire. He’ll yelp something like “chien” in a chorus and you’ll probably have no idea what he’s saying. But you won’t care too much—his songs are damn catchy. He’s Black Francis. You know, from the Pixies? Does Doolittle sound familiar? If not, see your way to a record store immediately—or just buy a ticket for Friday’s show. Though the Pixies are long gone (not counting the odd reunion show), Francis has sustained a prolific solo career as Frank Black for the past two decades, and he’s on tour now.
