I know subby, he's done hardly anything since the Pixies broke up. And by hardly anything I mean 21 albums since 1993.

And some of them are pretty damn solid, at that.

"Teenager of the Year" is one of the greatest albums I've had the pleasure to listen to. It definitely deserves being regarded higher among "Best of the 90s" lists.

no one cares. not even the pixies.

well, actually kim cared so much that she said "if i hear/see THE pixies 1 more friggin time, i'm outta here". that's why she left the band

Too bad you're not a grammar Nazi, or you might've noticed the lower-case "the."

==================

21 albums of which sold a total of 20 copies.......combined.

So... is subby conflicted or just a tard?

/can't recall ever seeing a cool tag used while insulting said cool person

While I love the Pixies, he's had some damn good solo work.  Only one I was disappointed with was Honeycomb; it's not bad, just a little too slow/mellow compared to most of his work.

Would rather see Kim Deal put out more Breeders work, though Mountain Battles was very disappointing.

It's both.  Frank gave an interview back in the day, sometime in the Bossanova/Trompe era, saying it was just easier to throw the 'The' in there since most people did anyways.  If he didn't care, then nobody else should either...

The name of the band is Talking Heads.

If Frank Black's solo career was so successful, he wouldn't have reformed the Pixies.

The best live album I have ever heard.

Always wanted to like the Pixies more but just couldn't get past the Black Francis screeching.  Do like "Is She Weird" tho.
 
2013-06-28 02:57:23 PM  
This song is shiat.
 
2013-06-28 03:06:58 PM  
Subby, that's so funny I forgot to laugh.  Even Andrew Ridgeley is doing so much better than you'd think.

If you don't care for his singing you might like 'Alec Eiffel'. The final half of the song is just a fun mix of layered guitar with an addictive synth loop on top of them.

That was plain awful. Sounds like a really bad "Bossanova" outtake. Considering how strong most of Frank's solo work has been, I really thought he could do better than this. Funny they waited til Kim left to release this POS.
 
2013-06-28 03:42:24 PM  
We've been talking about Pixar so much lately I thought they were doing a project with Adam Sandler.

Its stylized both ways, even on their official site.

Some Bass Playing Guy: If Frank Black's solo career was so successful, he wouldn't have reformed the Pixies.


Or maybe he just likes making music so much he's cool with making it with the Pixies if they're all not dead and willing to do so? Seriously, he might not be rolling in dough but I don't think anyone who was listening to the Pixies in the late 80s or so could have ever imagined "these guys, they are so in it for the money." I'm not saying they don't like getting paid, but anyone with as many solo albums as he's got isn't doing it  just to get paid.

Bagboy is groovy!
 
2013-06-28 05:10:38 PM  
Does the song start off quiet then get loud then quiet again,  then loud and end quiet?  Or  does it start off loud then get quiet then loud again then quiet and end on a loud note?

I prefer the Van Halen's new album.

The "bagboy" song...not so good.

Carry on.

I wanted to like this song, but for some reason it reminds me of a Cake song, and that just killed it for me
 
2013-06-28 08:41:35 PM  
Black Francis hasn't done shiat, but Frank Black has possibly done his best work post-Pixies.

Read this thread while jamming the FARK out of an F7sharp9 chord.

No, it just sucked
