Frank Black Sings It Out


“This song is kind of like a cross between The Violent Femmes and (They Might Be) Giants.”

“You know, just stuff I like.”

“I am my own scene… It’s still basically a piece of wood with some wire on it.”

“There’s no reason why anyone should be ‘literate’ in music… It doesn’t matter… It’s OK to listen to Bon Jovi… That guy has a Rush hat on because there’s people in the world that like Rush.”
