This #celebritynoseandeyes is a portrait of the best singer/songwriter/front-man that YOU have NEVER heard of -- it is none other than the great #frankblack who is perhaps best know for his catalog with #thepixies . I love him better though for his solo work such as #teenageroftheyear and for the entire repertoire with his other band, #frankblackandthecatholics . In case you don't think he's the real deal, know that #davidbowie has invited on stage to share the spotlight on certain numbers on tour, most notably #scarymonsters . Another thing that sets him apart is his willingness to stretch the boundaries of rock by featuring #pedalsteel guitar on a number of my favorite of his songs. Most of his music sounds kind of #indierock but there is a good dose of #countrymusic as well. . He's great check; out his music! . #moleskine #moleskineart #lvsketchmeet #drawdaily #draweveryday #ballpointpen #ballpointpendrawing #crosshatch #crosshatchshading #portraitdrawing #celebrityportrait #journaling #penandink #instaart #artistsoninstagram
I actually listen to most music digitally, while I'm commuting or at my desk, than I do on vinyl. Any thoughts on the three albums I've listened to most this week?  V/A - African Scream Contest, 2008 (comp of psychedelic, sweaty 1970s afrobeat from Benin and Togo - pretty wild)  The Feelies - Crazy Rhythms, 1980 (post-punk/indie rock featuring the titular crazy rhythms and some taught guitar)  Frank Black & the Catholics - Black Letter Days, 2002 (bluesy alt-rock album released on the same day as the 'Devil's Workshop' album. This seems to have a darker strand running through it)
20 years ago today, Frank Black And The Catholics (@pixiesofficial) released their self-titled debut; five years later to the day, they released final LP “Show Me Your Tears.” Today the radio is rocking. #showmeyourtears #frankblackandthecatholics #pixies
#tbt Surly was the first real friend I made when I moved ~2,000 miles to San José, CA, in Feb. 2001. She just sent me this old picture of us from her epic birthday party featuring Frank Black and the Catholics at The Usual (now @theritzsj) on April 20, 2002. I don’t remember what we were laughing about, but I do remember everyone wore VIP lanyards with Surly’s face on them (pic 2 😜) and #blackfrancis ending the show with his classic @pixiesofficial song, “Where Is My Mind?” Surly ended up moving to NY and me to AZ, but we sure had fun #downtownsanjose in our early 20s. 😍🎶 #frankblackandthecatholics #frankblack #thepixies #sanjose #sanjoseca #dtsj #goodtimes #friends #livemusic #vip #bleached #norcal #throwbacktuesday #surlyaf ❤️ #whereismymind #sofadistrict #southbaylife #sfbayarea #bayarea

Pretty good day here in Indiana. Up with the sun to my first bike race. Had a blast, didn’t fall, finished ahead of my dad. Spotted a nice old Bridgestone RB-1. Off to a birthday party with some friends and ate too much ice cream cake. . . . #sunrise #bicyclerace #bikerace #indiana #corn #frankblack #frankblackandthecatholics #bridgestone #rb1 #surlycrosscheck #raleigh #basslakefestival #mykneeshurt

Yesterday was the 20th Anniversary of my first ever Pearl Jam show. This Vancouver Concert Poster is a VERY sought after print from 1998. Mine is numbered #24/300 and is signed by Barry Ament of the Ames Bros. Frank Black and The Catholics opening! A truly life changing evening.  @amesbros @pearljam . . . #pearljam #concertposter #silkscreened #art #poster #amesbros #barryament #vancouvermusic #inittospinit #frankblack #frankblackandthecatholics
Frank Black and The Catholics - Self Titled (1998)  For my money, Frank Black’s best, most consistent post Pixies record.  I bought this on vinyl approx. 18 years before I owned a proper record player, so playing it now feels like cracking open a 50 year old bottle of whisky or something.  Sounds amazing.  #frankblack #blackfrancis #pixies #thepixies #frankblackandthecatholics #vinyl #vinylcollection #vinylcollector #vinylporn #vinyljunkie #vinyladdict #record #records #recordcollection #recordcollector #nowlistening #nowplaying #nowspinning
I haven't posted in a while and this is not a normal post for me but, I would like to talk about the song #theblackrider. Probably around 10 years ago a friend made me a burnt CD with her favorite #frankblack songs. 'The Black Rider' was one of those songs I always assumed it was an original Frank Black song and he was the Black Rider. But, Friday I was adding Frank Black songs to a playlist and when I searched the Black Rider i saw #tomwaits originally did the song. Upon listening to his version it is clearly a Tom Waits song and because of that song I listened to his whole #blackrider album. What a great album the whole time listening to it I'm  wondering why isn't this a play or a #halloween cartoon. After some research I found out, it is a play and in probably the next couple of days I'll watch it on #youtube . Anyway if you haven't heard the song, have a listen it's a great song. If you know one version  check out the other, both are different and great, love them both, hope u do 2. #vinyl #vinylcollection #recordcollector #record #recordcollection #vinylcollector #frankblackandthecatholics #blackletterdays #tomwaitstheblackrider #greatmusic #loungemusic #alternativerock #drunkloungesinging #thepixies #pixies #spotify
