Iím not asking, Iím telling.

Share a live Frank song with the forum so we can revisit it. It can be an old favorite or one you just discovered. Tell us what you like about it? Share the Frank.

I actually just discovered this Abstract Plain performance this year. I like his soulful vocals on it, and just the solo acoustic rendition of a song that is quite produced on the album with a full band. This is a great clip. Comment on it and then give us one of your own to enjoy.

I'll share two. Both are ones I uploaded many many years ago.

Freedrom Rock - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VG-ZQWfL2eU
Love the energy of the '96 shows and this is from a rare full gig on video.
Quality of the youtube clip isn't the best - apologies for that, but a cracking version of a cracking tune. I uploaded a few others from the set and the full version must be floating round somewhere on youtube too I'd have thought.

Pong/Thal/Plain - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QaViidD5xqo
A crushing mini-set from a classic lineup.



all i can say, thank god for polio! brian

Thanks Benji! Can always count on you for the good stuff. Those are amazing. I imagine Thalassocracy is a tough one to sing live.

And thanks Rivum. That is one of my favorite concert videos and contains my all time favorite Czar. Often when I listen to the studio Czar I try to sing the second verse the way Frank does in this one, but I can never do it. Such an amazing performance. Love seeing (some) of the crowd into it as well.

I'll come back with another live performance clip soon, but I don't want to be a hog.

Johnny Barleycorn live on Conan. Band was FB, EDF, Jack Kidney with the late Billy Block and Duane Jarvis.

At the time I was not too enthusiastic - it wasn't new Pixies and it wasn't Catholics - but man now I wish I had seen this line up.

That's a really good one too, thanks Stevio10.

Frank's voice seems so low in that clip. I always wonder how the audience took to that song. It's about as different from Pixies 1.0 as you could imagine.

And who is that sitting next to Conan? Joe Buck?
