Thought this had gone unnoticed, sorry for bringing up old news. Interesting collaboration though.

Isaac Brock on BF! (This is eleven years old but I just stumbled across it..)

Frank Black, "The Vanishing Spies"

Isaac Brock: Not one of my favorite songs off that record, but it's not bad. His solo albums are kind of hit-or-miss. At first, I felt like it was kind of wanky in a weird way, and then after I listened to it, I was like, "This is fucking great." Most of the songs on Teenager Of The Year were pretty damn good, like that song "Headache." That's a fuckin' great song. Probably the reason I bought the record—actually, I was gonna buy the record whether there's any good songs on it or not. I fuckin' love that guy. I haven't bought the last couple he's done. I'm sure I will. I haven't really had time to be in a record store buying shit for a while, to be honest.

Thanks to The Maharal for linking this, great interview!

I definitely felt something similar with The Vanishing Spies. Listening to the cassette on my car tapedeck in 1994, I used to think, "Man this song just throws off the pace of the whole album" or something like that. It was the first song by fbf that I just did not like. Now of course I love it. It still feels a bit incongruous to the first four songs of TOTY, but in a good way.

And cool to see him plugging Dylan and the Surfers.

Can't remember what I thought of it at first but I know that for about ten years now I have been using the phrase "that's just how some things do not materialize" on a very regular basis.

And what a guitar solo towards the end, wow!
