.. specifically the line-up who played Reading Festival in '94 I know it wasn't the Catholics and I'm pretty sure the the band did include EDF but who else was in that band?

Some of the song sound like they were designed to be solo, like Brackish Boy, maybe even Los Angeles. But it's hard to think of him doing a whole truly solo album like Johnny Cash or something.





Everything on that first FB album was "composed" in MIDI on a computer by FB and EDF.

The drum tracks, the guitar parts, bass, everything.

Then, FBF hired specific session musicians (Maimone, Santiago, Vincent) to overdub their own "analog" playing of the parts over the pre-existing synthetic guides, and, later, to recreate those parts (with their own human variables thrown in for good measure) in the touring road band version of that lineup with he and EDF.

It is my understanding that the only things left on the final LP mix from the original MIDI demos were EDF's keyboard parts, some of the keyboard bass and maybe a bit of sampled percussion.

This made it even more of a "solo" effort, if one groks that "FB Solo" at that point in time actually meant "FBF + EDF."

yeah, good point. I guess I'm being a bit myopic regarding the term "solo project."
picpic Posted - 02/27/2018 : 06:43:23
Well, "Frank Black" was a solo project with hired musicians as a backing band, and Joey was one of many, right ? Like Elvis or Bruce Springsteen.

And yeah, Dave did magic at some shows. Charles helping out the boys.

Crazy to think of the three of them struggling while Kim rode the Cannonball to countless billions.

I think the whole Frank Black project was intended to be all solo from the beginning, and he eventually hired Santiago for a few numbers because he was a friend and probably just needed to work.

Didn't Lovering also opened for a few Catholics shows as a magician ?

Yep. Sounded kind of depressing. Poor guy.

...which is interesting to me in that, Charles started out the solo FB jaunt with the Joey sound as a part of it, but not enough to keep him in the CoR band / proto-Catholics.

I always wondered if there was a live version of All My Ghosts with Workman on guitar. Heard plenty Rich Gilbert solos from various recordings over the years but nothing ever came close to the studio version for me. Does anyone know if this exists, or do the timelines simply not correspond?
