TOTY tour mentioned here as well: https://wickedmessenger.com/march-16-blog-links-post/
quote:
However, just a few hours ago, I was told personally by one of the musicians who both played on Frank Black Francis’ triumphant, genre-bending 1994 double-album TEENAGER OF THE YEAR, as well as toured with him upon its release, that there are also plans underway for a brief 30th Anniversary “Reunion Tour” celebrating the release of that legitimately stupefyingly accomplished and ballsy record.


quote:
While “details are still being worked out,” it appears that all the principals are on board for this undertaking – including bassist Eric Drew Feldman , drummer Nick Vincent, and guitarist Lyle Workman.

quote:
Though not officially acknowledged or announced, literally while I was speaking with my friend, these plans were corroborated by FBF himself to another highly trusted mutual acquaintance, so – barring any unforeseen hindrances – it would seem this tour is a go!




all i can say, thank god for polio! brian

Certainly very exciting. Looked like Charles' brother also corroborating it in that thread too?

Interesting to see if EDF is on bass or keys. The latter are such a prominent part of that record.

I am as excited right now as when I first heard about the Bossanova/Trompe shows! Which I am getting to see in about 8 hours from now!!! I seem to be in a permanent state of excitement.

Thanks for the kind words.

I am told no shows outside of the USA are planned, and that it will likely be a very limited number of dates.

But hey, who knows? A lot can change over the next several months.

I just hope it actually comes to pass in one form or another. The world these days is a very unreliable place, filled with no shortage of unexpected entanglements...

If you think playing Bird Dream and the Happening was good well wait till you hear he played Calistan in London on Tuesday

(from Reddit Planet of Sound)

https://www.reddit.com/r/thepixies/comments/1bj72s5/last_night_adam_buxton_brought_out_frank_black_to/

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Last night Adam Buxton brought out Frank Black to play 'Hey' with Richard Ayoade.
Ol' Buckles played the London Palladium last night and in the second half did a bit on Pixies and their influence on him. After a bit of customary waffle, Ayoade started noodling Hey on his guitar. When Buxton asked him to sing it, he seemed shy and instead, from stage right, emerged Frank Black. They played Hey, with Ayoade doing the lead solo.

Then Buxton got Frank Black to play Calistan. And he finished with Where Is My Mind.

Great night.

Nice. Buxton is great. Looking forward to whenever he gets around to doing that podcast with BF which he has teased a few times at this stage (and it's long overdue since they're friends). Still find it amusing that Adam was milling around the area whenever Kim decided to abandon ship during the Indie Cindy recordings.

Oh my gosh have not been here in years but thankful to have checked the forum today! If this tour happens!!? Will blow my mind. I skipped TOTY tour because the cover of the album bummed me out for a while and I didn’t get in to the album right away for some stupid reason. Later became my fav album for years and years. The Cult tour blew my mind. One of best concerts I ever saw. Excited!! Would be cool if there was a meetup in a big city or cities if this happens!



I'd rather be anywhere or doing anything

My wife is having a baby in three weeks and we basically acknowledged we won't be doing things like movies, events or concerts for a while, but a TOTY show would be the exception. Time to leave the baby with the parents.

I do hope they do a few EU dates for those folks. Although I did go to Europe for the Bossa/Trompe shows because I did not think they were going to do that tour here.

And holy crap was it worth it.

Deleted from the seetickets site but should be back tomorrow. Finally an official announcement after the tedious "I know something you don't" teasing.

Lyle Workman's posted Charles' thoughts from the press release on Instagram. No details on specific dates quite yet but it's a lovely read.

TEENAGER OF THE YEAR Sometime in the early 80s, I'd have to look the date, I matriculated
high school. This school held an awards banquet for some of the departing students at the school. I received an award called the TEENAGER OF THE YEAR award; my brother received the same award the following year.

Our award was a 50 dollar credit for textbooks, a TEENAGER OF THE YEAR medallion (my mother still has this), and also the banquet hall dinner, soup to nuts. My brother and I had no complaint about award (it was given for being all-around-good-guy as best as we could determine). But for such a grand title to be given as TEENAGER OF THE YEAR, I felt the glory had not been amplified enough.

In 1993, I was doing "solo recording" sessions with Eric Drew Feldman in Los Angeles. We had settled on a core band with Nick Vincent and Lyle Workman, occasionally augmented by Joey Santiago and Moris Tepper. Though we had to change studios numerous times for actual forest fires and earthquakes, the whole process was such an addictive musical buffet that Eric and I couldn't stop. We did some vocals at a studio rumored to be owned by Sergio Mendes; in t control room was wall of television screens broadcasting the brush which crept toward us. We eventually evacuated to someplace else. We never met Sergio but we saw him perform a few weeks later when we vacated to Las Vegas after the Northridge earthquake, which had trapped the TEENAGER OF THE YEAR tapes in a studio vault for some time. Our zeal plus empathy from our financiers, they safely observing travails from London, was enough to keep the money flowing until Eric and I relented and declared "Consummatum est".

We tried to make it grand. 22 in 62. I called it TEENAGER OF THE YEAR. It is 30 years old now, and the original band will perform the record at various venues in early 2025. 4AD has remastered the LP for a fresh printing. Enjoy.
