This has probably been done several times but I don't remember seeing it.

I guess I'll host since I'm the one putting it out there. Sorry if it's annoying.

Pilgrim
Surfer
Doolittle
Bossanova
Trompe
B-Sides
FB Self-Titled
TOTY
Cult of Ray
Oddballs
Catholics Self-Titled
Pistolero
Dog in the Sand
Black Letter Days
Devil's Workshop
Show Me Your Tears
Sunday Sunny...
Honeycomb
FMRM
Christmass
Bluefinger
SVN Fingers
Golem
NSE
Abbabubba
Paley & Francis
Indie Cindy
Head Carrier

First, what am I forgetting? I'm sure I missed something.
Second, sorry if they are not in exact chronological order, doing it on my lunch break,
Third, not counting best of or live albums, unless everyone thinks we should. That means no Frank Black Francis and no 93-03 and no Complete Catholics and no EP 1 EP 2 EP 3, etc. But we can add all of them in if you want since they are his albums and probably we all like some of those ones better than some of the ones on the list.

Let me know your thoughts.

Without the list changing, my first vote off would be Paley and Francis. I don't mind it but I really never listen to anything from it.

See, now, I like your thinking. :-)

Why should we HAVE to vote off an album? Letís think about alternatives!

Sure. All those in favour of keeping Indy Cindy raise your hand. Don't see any hands so that's that.

Sorry but something has to go first? This isn't going to work is it.

Abbabubba - couple of nice fleshed out tunes but mostly demos I can live without.

Up until recently I didn't even know Abbabubba was an album, I just thought it was a stupid song Charles once wrote for Violet. And if I'm honest I thought it was rubbish at the time. Now, having listened to the album I must agree with Stevio. Much prefer the produced version of Rabbits on NSE. I really like that song. I liked the album too. I dare anyone to vote NSE out.

I'm voting for Paley and Francis as well.... I just never listen to it... i'm not even sure if I've gotten through a full listen of the entire album...

Are we not including the 2 Grand Duchy records?

Oh of course the Grand Duchy records should be in included I think! I only listened to the Paley & francis album once and I thought it was alright?

It'll have to go at some point because Bossanova is the best Pixies/Frank Black album.

Oh pot, you already did it for me! Thanks!

So far Paley has 2 votes and pot has unilaterally voted out Cindy, which probably is going to result in a coup. As someone once said Let the people speak.

Paley has more no votes than Cindy.

I donít know if we are united enough to carry this game of Survivor all the way through.

I'm not sure I understand the rules of the game. I just assumed we all play a turn and pick an album to throw out and the winning album is the last album that noone wants to throw out. I'm sorry folks but we can only have one cookie from the jar, and we must share it between us.

Not wanting to be pedantic but if Pixies B-Sides and Oddballs are on there shouldn't 'One More Road for the Hit' and 'Snake Oil' be on there? Or is it just albums that were physically released. I think they were download only weren't they?

I'll vote off Paley and Francis, if it's not already considered gone. Nothing against it, I just don't listen to it.

As far as rules I thought that after a certain time/certain amount of votes one album would get voted off and then we start again with the remaining albums.

I agree with you on Snake and Road, we should add them.

And yes I agree with you on your interpretation of the rules. But I have no idea how many people are playing so it's hard to say. Why don't we just say every Frank Friday we vote off an album. This gives us a few more days (depending on what time zone you're in) to debate and discuss before we make the first vote (which looks like will be for Paley).

I enjoy that Paley and Francis album, some very good tracks. Best is probably Paley's Ugly Life. But Crescent Moon and Curse are two very nice Black songs indeed.

Never been fond of Pistolero as a whole album - there's four or five crackers on either end of the album but a forgettable middle.

I'm going to change my vote tactically to Pistolero in an attempt to save Paley & Francis from going just yet. Indy Cindy can go later, plenty of time for that.

Ok, one day left to vote in round 1.

Score so far is:

Paley - 5
Pistolero - 2
Abba - 1
Surfer Rosa - 1

I think that's accurate.

Please fulfill your civic duty and vote by tomorrow.

Looks like Paley is leading the pack and that's as good a pick as any I suppose. Since it's probably going to win, I'll cast a vote for Abbabubba.


I had a bad reaction to your public hobby writings.

Current score is

Paley 5
Pistolero 2
Abbabubba 2
Surfer Rosa 1

Not trying to do any electioneering here, but I just listened to Pistolero today, and how anybody could not love that album is beyond me. Look at some of the rocking Frank Black classics on that track list! Yes some of the tunes are a bit long, weird, and unpolished, but nonetheless it is prime cathloics in my opinion.
