Kim Deal definitely contributed musically to at least some Indie Cindy material. 'Bagboy' for instance:

Black Francis: "Originally I recorded that song with David at Joey’s studio about four years previous, without lyrics or not m… I don’t think it had lyrics. And it was a different kind of feel, it was slightly more bluesy or something. When we rehearsed it at the ill fated rehearsal session I believe actually Kim kind of disassembled the song somewhat, you know to try to kind of find a breath of fresh air for it or something. There had been several attempts even before any lyrics had were written to make the music into something that felt right. It had slightly different feels and different versions, different arrangements through the whole process."

I recall she contributed to 'Indie Cindy' too. That said non of the bass parts she actually played made it to the album (at least reportedly). Ding would have re-recorded them.




Yes, I read somewhere she introduced the pause at the 'set for stun automatica' line in the title track.

I seem to remember Joey saying they only had 4/5 songs properly rehearsed going into the recording. 'Ring the Bell' - one of my favourite of the newer songs - was one of them.

He seems pretty comfortable with the "Frank Black" moniker--like he's switching back. Any truth to that?

I feel like he doesn't really care what people call him. He's going by Black Francis, but I hear interviewers call him Frank, or Black Francis, or Charles even and he doesn't seem to care one way or the other.

Thanks Ziggy
Nice tie! :)

Loved that bit:
"Our producer [Tom Dalgety] and our previous producer Gil [Norton] I believe are both coming to the show tonight!
I’d like to discuss some kind of recording session."

Great interview Ziggy!

Thanks, Ziggy.

I believe I shared a cab with you and a couple of other people back in 2008, trying to locate the precore in London. Is that possible?
The precore was moved last-minute, to somewhere inside. We missed most of it.

Ziggy! Looking good, mate!

If you tour a lot, you always at least go through Wales, on your way to Ireland or on your way back. Stop off at Holyhead and all that stuff. And we recorded in Wales a few years ago. We’re starting to be more familiar with the country I suppose.


Good old Holyhead, I've gotten the boat across several times (though not for some years).

Yep, that's right! Ended up being at 'The Social' on Little Portland Street.

Thanks for the comments guys. BF was very generous with his time and talked at length. It was a brilliant gig afterwards too!

We filmed the entire interview to run some of it in our 6pm news programme. He was amused to see our set up - two cameras plus a GoPro and iPhone for cutways - and said it looked like we were shooting a skating video. I'll post a longer version onto YouTube in the next week.

The Ziggy interview makes me think we will be getting another album before we will be getting (or instead of getting) a bunch of b sides. He's done that before, not a bad thing necessarily.
