Here's some photos I took of you guys I took in Winnipeg on the 2nd date of the reunion tour http://broszkowski.com/pixies/winn.html .

Thanks
Matt

P.S. Just wanted to thank you as well for letting me in for the Cleveland shows last year. I'm a friend of Ed's who was one of his plus 3 that went with him.



HMMM...NOT SURE WHAT THE POLICY IS AT PIXIES' SHOWS. GUESS I DEFER TO THE TM ON THAT ONE. PHOTOGRAPHY AND RECORDING EQUIPMENT CAN BE ANNOYING TO OTHER PATRONS, BUT I GUESS I USUALLY DON'T HAVE A PROB WITH IT...

I'm reading "The Singularity is Near" by Ray Kurzweil and highly recommend it.

Do you like vinyl records?

Also, do you like the state of Texas? Your tours never seem to come through here often enough. Any favorite truck stops or sights in Texas?

First thing that ever drew me to your music was the unusual and unique interplay between your guitar and Joey's / Lyle's / Rich's / Dave's. I haven't heard FM/RM, but will there be more of that kind of thing on the horizon with your new work?(please) Your guitar sounds have always been where it's at in my book.

Also, what kind of stuff are you listening to and enjoying/being inspired by these days? Any good thai meals lately? (Sorry-just thinking about the little siam line)




I tend to think of human beings as huge rubbery test tubes, too, with chemical reactions seething inside



HMMM.... GOT AN IPOD FOR CHRISTMAS SO I'VE BEEN LISTENING TO ALL SORTS. YA KNOW, RECORDS YOU BOUGHT BUT NEVER LISTENED TO, THAT KIND OF THING...LOT OF TOM WAITS TODAY, YA KNOW, ON SHUFFLE....

Have you ever considered doing a children's album? With a 6 day old son, my thoughts in the last few months has turned to music intended for young ears. (of course I already have my FB lullabye mix ready!) I just figured with the likes of Leadbelly, They Might Be Giants, Dan Zanes (and all the great guest musicians he has play on them such as Lou Reed, Amie Mann, etc.) and countless outher brilliant artists having done it, a Frank Black kids album would be perfect.

Anyways, looking foward to FM/RM and everything else... Thanks so Much!






WELL, I GUESS I DON'T HAVE A PROBLEM WITH CHILDREN'S MUSIC, HELL, I GOT ELMO ON ALL THE TIME, BUT IN GENERAL I FIND THAT IT'S FUN JUST PLAYING THEM STUFF THAT YOU MIGHT LISTEN TO, MAYBE MORE ON THE MELLOW SIDE, BUT KIDS DIG LEONARD COHEN, TOO.

Hi Frank,

I am writing my PhD dissertation (physics) at the moment and your music is the best I own at getting through the long allnighters. Even better than the Stooges! Anyway, just wanted to say thanks for the help - you'll be in the acknowledgements...

Curious:

Have you read any of the Antarctic early 1900s expedition journal things? Like of Scott or Amundsen? Scott was writing little gushing obituaries and seeing to the care of the families of his fellow dying people, as he waited to freeze and starve to death.

I forgot to say before, THANKS for the whole proliferation. It's like one, huge, good musical score for the last 20 years for us baby-boomees.

That song must have an interesting story behind it's writing if you can't play it! :)

Incidentally, from what I've heard of Fastman Raiderman, it sounds like your singing has really improved (didn't think it possible, but here we are). Are you still taking some vocal training, is it just from maybe being more relaxed with the Nashville guys, or what's the story? Really looking forward to having the whole album in my hands this summer in any case.
