Another great find. Nice job, 2Strings. It seems very plausible that's exactly where FB got the line. I've been wondering if FB spent a whole bunch of time just researching Brood on the Internet as he wrote this album, using Google, Wikipedia (the Dutch one has much more Brood info, but I can't read it), YouTube, whatever. Maybe FB even stayed at the Hilton Hotel in Amsterdam when he did his research -- using their WiFi connection on his Powerbook. That's why this is the first great album of the 21st century. So modern, in every way.



Please pardon me, for these my wrongs.

On Bluefinger, he sounds like he's having...well, fun.



ABSOLUTELY ABSOLUTELY ABSOLUTELY.

That is what makes Frank...Frank. 100% agree.

Ok, so which one of us wrote the wiki entry for "Bluefinger"? Here it is: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bluefinger

(It wasn't me. And it needs some work.)

The wiki needs a few style changes, but those are minor and I'll do them this afternoon. The biggest issue, though, is that it's called a Frank Black album. The Man himself said it's a Black Francis album. (And for all we know, "Black Francis" is the name of the band, but that's just wild speculation on my part.)

i wonder what the man himself thinks of all the detective work thats been done regarding this record...
sure, he wouldn't have expected it to stay a mystery, but it ain't taken long...

but seeing as he's in aus, it's unlikely he'll get a chance to check in...



all i can say, thank god for polio! brian

I don't know for definite, but he did credit himself as playing harmonica in a previous post.

He's the only one with harmonica credits in the initial announcements, so I'd guess it's him.

I wanted to wait. I really did. Honest Abe! I got too excited though, and just had to hunt it down. I know I'll be the first in line in my part of the world once it gets released anyway, so I figure why deny myself?

First off, I've got to give kudos to The Man. What a smooth transition back to rock! And an absolute beaut of an album...It's definately in my top 3 FB albums. I must admit that when FB (or should I say BF?) was making his cryptic posts and eventually posted the tracklisting, I thought that it was just a big hoax and that he was just having some fun with us. But, honestly, the song titles fit a lot better after actually listening to the songs. (Especially now that the Brood theory has surfaced. I love the fact that FB has put out a concept album, but better yet is that it works so so well!)

Some of the songs on Bluefinger remind me of other Frank songs. Test Pilot Blues reminds me of Nadine. Angels Come To Comfort You's intro sort of reminds me of Horrible Day. Anyone else find themselves going 'Jeez...That sounds familiar!' with any of the songs? I'm definately not bringing this up as a knock against the album or anything. Actually, I rather like it when it happens. It's almost bridging the old with the new.

The first three songs are rediculously catchy...I find myself humming/singing them all the time now...I agree with another poster in that it sounds like Frank is having a blast on this record.

Now I'm off to listen to it some more. Love love love!

Do you guys think this album signals the return of hard-rockin' Frank for some time to come, or is it part of the concept for this particular album? I have not heard Fort Wayne so i have no idea what kind of direction he's going with that, but i would quite like to see some more rockin' material surface.

I think he's doing what he wants to do. Grand Duchy will probably be a bit lighter and who knows what the edf project will sound like/if it will surface. He talked before about being prolific, and I kind of get the feeling he's going to have multiple music personalities in the near future. I'd imagine one of those will be rockin' Frank.

I think he was staying in Zwolle, his posts on this board point that way. And what other place than Zwolle is better to research Brood?

I don't go with that, of course he may have checked somethings online
but you can find lot's of expositions, a musuem an tons of books on Brood here.
the statue of Herman Brood is placed at the venue were FB played
lot's of shows with the Catholics. Zwolle isn't punkrock-city number one,
nobody plays there, believe me. To me the only way that it makes sense that he played
there was that he had a friend in the area. Maybe the club's promoter or something like that. So my guess is that he knows the place well. That's great, for a musician it's common to know Amsterdam or Utrecht, but Zwolle...no way. Frank is special

Coastline, I mentioned on the discussion board that calling it a 'Black Francis' album might be a little misleading. The entry beforehand suggested that Frank was changing his identity completely, and "going back to his roots". Sure, he called himself 'BF' on this forum, but all the summer tour dates are still under the name of Frank Black etc.

Wowwowowowow.

Ok, I'll start by saying that this is the first FB release I've ever downloaded, everything else, I've been loyal and bought. But this I just couldn't wait for after hearing the name "Black Francis". And I will be buying this as soon as it's out.
I'll start with the music: It's amazing. I love the lack of solos, the bass, everything. It reminds me a lot of TOTY, and there are definitely elements of the Pixies in there, but just the scream and it's a lot more obvious that it's the same songwriter than recent albums. It does sound like a metal pick on the bass (like Surfer Rosa).
Also, there are a couple of synths on various tracks, which aren't credited. Any chance it could be EDF? I know this isn't the EDF project thing, but just interested.
Ok, on to the concept. This made me love it so much more. Just when I thought I knew what he was all about. That man never fails to shock me (in a wonderful way), since I first heard the Pixies when I was 12.

My first thought was that at least a couple of these songs started as the songs he wrote for the Pixies, especially Threshold Apprehension. Maybe he decided to write one song about Brood, the Pixies album never happened (who knows) and got hooked on Brood, and got the idea for this project. If he was, at first, trying to write like Black Francis, then why not release it under that name.

But my absolute favourite thing about this, is the way it sounds like a complete combination of everything he's done. In a single song I can hear Surfer Rosa style guitars, elements of TLM and TOTY, early Catholics and definate hints to the Nashville stuff. And it's wonderful.

As for the dates as Frank Black, maybe those will still be Nashville shows.
I'm off to read up on Brood. I'm intregued.

Also, the line about the "name that rhymes with dead".

Sounds like a blatant Pixies reference to me.
