I was just reading the book and came across mention of Frank's Hang on to your Ego cover. Not much was said- he doesn't even say if he liked it unfortunately but he does say he was somewhat familiar with the Pixies which I find interesting. Wonder if he's heard Wave of Mutilation?
Correction: he doesn't say he was familiar with them. I misread it. He says he the pixies were a band he didn't know very well.
