What's your favourite post nashville song, from Christmass to the present that black francis has written?

I think for myself it'd be don't get me wrong, with dead man's curve as a challenger.

Then again, i do love me some threshold...

Yes, also that one. I love the way the synth comes in. And how the second verse comes in right after the aaaaahhhhhssss. So pretty. Prettier than Fort Wayne.

I don't remember who worked with Frank on the Christmass songs, but those songs turned out great.

Lonesome Fetter has one of my favorite chord progressions of all time, and Violet's bass on that song is so awesome.

The "all my life, drums and pipes" part is sweet. Threshold is on my current mix tape and the bass on that is awesome, too.

I'm looking forward to hearing Master & Servant!

I second your choice. It's a tie between Lonesome Fetter and Don't Get me Wrong for me.

Funny to see that few people mention songs from Bluefinger. When it got released we thought it was the best thing ever, probably because it came after the Nashville era. I still think it's a great record, but I wouldn't rank it among his best.

Maybe it's just the scattershot nature of what he's been doing post-Nashville, not caring too much about albums and just releasing these little gems, as b-sides, on the internet, on the Christmass live album, etc.

Bluefinger has to be one of his most consistent records of the past years. Those first 7 songs are almost flawless. Damn you Discotheque 36.

i agree that other than discotheque 36 Bluefinger is pretty much flawless. svn fngrs is basically perfect as well; i only wish it were longer. i like all the new stuff on Christmas and Petits Fours is awesome also. Mr and Mrs Francis are on a very consistent roll. they just need to release a double album.

I like Discoteque 36, i think it has a nice melody, nice guitar work and sound, and an especially nice bridge. I do find the first verse lyrics weak, but the rest is fine lyric-wise.

I wish he would play she's my way live. That song is my way (I'm super funny, really).
I thought I read about a live performance of Radio Lizards sans the a cappella stuff.
Anybody listen to it?

Don't Get Me Wrong's getting a lot of mentions. The best-loved Post-Nashville Song?

I think with Radio Lizards, Don't Get Me Wrong, Dead Mans Curve and Rabbit Hole- Frank is really onto something- an album with songs of that quality would easily be one of his best!

I personally like Frank when he is more experimental as opposed to the way Honeycomb, Fast-Man/Raider Man sound which can get kinda boring after awhile imo :O

I agree with every word, Alex. Even the "and" between "Curve" and "Rabbit". I only hope Frank is onto something not was onto something. The best songs get left behind. The madness continues...

I know I'm being a bit dramatic. The man never rests, and to quote one of his lyrics, he's only stuck in this song for so long. I never saw the songs listed here coming. I was immersed in country-tinged Catholics and the Nashville Number System.

Virginia Reel, anyone? What a sound! Been and gone in a flash. An early Grand Duchy track. They should play it live.

Favourite post Nashville songs:

Threshold Apprehension (although I am not sure I think that might have been released before)
Your Mouth Into Mine
Can I have Can't Have a Heart and Break it? (it's technically a Herman Brood song)
Everything on SVN FNGRS espcially I Sent Away and Garbage Heap
Fort wayne
Is Don't Get Me Wrong post nashville?
