Frank Black – Honeycomb

[Frank+Black+(Honeycomb+-+Front).jpg]
Frank Black – “Honeycomb”
Released July 19, 2005
Recorded Nashville,TN
Length 50:19
Label Back Porch
Interesting solo work by Mr Frank Black – or should that be Black Francis or Charles Michael Kittridge Thompson IV ?! Or maybe Bob Black!


Honeycomb was his eleventh studio album and was released in July 2005 on Back Porch Records. His first original solo work since 1996’s The Cult of Ray, Honeycomb was recorded in Nashville, TN and features notable local session musicians, such as Steve Cropper and ex-Presley guitarist Reggie White.

Frank Black had discussed making a Black on Blonde record (not a porno movie title!) for about ten years with producer Jon Tiven, where he would travel to Nashville (like Dylan did for Blonde on Blonde) and record with local musicians.

In 2005, Black eventually found the time to record such an album. He went to Nashville and met with a slew of notable session musicians whom Tiven had selected for the record.

Unusually for a Frank Black album, it has 3 cover songs: “Song of the Shrimp,” “Sunday Sunny Mill Valley Groove Day” (by Doug Sahm) and “Dark End of the Street.” Black said that, for the cover of “Song of the Shrimp,” he took his cue from the version by Townes Van Zandt, adding that he had never heard Elvis Presley’s version.

Some reviews here;

Pixies – The Purple Tape (1987)

Pixies – The Purple Tape (1987)

The Purple Tape is the name given by fans to the Pixies’ original 17-track demo tape, recorded at Fort Apache Studios in March 1987 by Gary Smith – due, quite simply, to its mostly purple appearance! Those fans were real clever!

Eighteen tracks were recorded in the session; a cover of Larry Norman’s “Watch What You’re Doing” was cut from the final tape. Eight of the tracks were released in 1987 as the band’s debut, Come on Pilgrim and the remaining nine were released under the title Pixies in 2002 by Sonic Unyon records.

Tracklisting

1. “Levitate Me” – 2:30
2. “The Holiday Song” – 2:08
3. “I’ve Been Tired” – 2:36
4. “Break My Body” – 2:00
5. “Down To The Well” – 2:36
6. “Rock A My Soul” – 1:40
7. “I’m Amazed” – 1:40
8. “Build High” – 1:41
9. “In Heaven (Lady In The Radiator Song)” – 1:43

Frank Black – Show Me Your Tears (2003)

Frank Black – Show Me Your Tears (2003)

The sound here is generally rather minimal, with a bare-bones guitar-bass-drums background occasionally fleshed out by extra instruments ranging from piano to maracas to harmonica.

With an obvious grounding in roots and blues most obviously embodied by the dual steel guitars of Rich Gilbert and David Philips, the Catholics’ latest effort is ideal for kicking back on the couch with a beer at the end of a day.

An album with a sound this decidedly old-school certainly doesn’t fit in the grunge-derived radio scene that Black helped create with the Pixies, but then he’s never been about following prevailing trends. Relying more on mood and nuance than on complexity or instrumental heroics, Black has managed to craft a compelling set of aural impressionist paintings.
