A Lone Pixie Is Never Lonely / 4
In 2003 Charles Kitteridge Thompson IV's Show Me Your Tears album was a terrific little release, beflecked with country odes to marital woes and some of the best songs of the artist's career. That it was so overlooked stems less from the fact that it was dud album and more due to Thompson's background in one of the most revered alternative acts of all time, The Pixies. Following the demise of said band in the early 1990s, Charles `Frank Black' Thompson's subsequent decade as a solo artist was consistently measured against his years in The Pixies, with interviews never failing to question the possible return of the indomitable quartet.
Last year Pixies fans finally saw the band return to the live arena with US and European dates, however the reunion hasn't dampened Frank Black's enthusiasm for releasing his own material. More MOR rock than the country flavours of Show Me Your Tears, Honeycomb finds Black encroaching on the territory of everyone from Bruce Springsteen to Chris Rea. If Show Me Your Tears was his break-up album, Honeycomb finds Black still rueing over the fallout, with the rambling, drunken keyboards of Another Velvet Nightmare backing up a lyrics dealing with thoughts of the ex copping off with another man.
As with previous Black solo material, minimal production on most of these songs reveals the singer's clean yet subdued vocals backed by an often sprightly guitar. While tunes such as Dark End Of The Street sound like a meld of early 1970s Neil Young and Van Morrison (even the title is redolent of such a link), there's still a taste of Black's quirky lyric on Song Of The Shrimp, where talking crustaceans take the spotlight for the cover of the track once recorded by Elvis Presley. Although Honeycomb finds Frank earning a helping hand from Booker T & The MG's guitarist Steve Cropper, it is Black's wife Jean who helps out on vocals for Honeycomb's finest track, Strange Goodbye.
Settle down Pixies fans, you're getting a new album next year from the acclaimed quartet. For now, this DIY production from Frank is a perfect stop-gap that offers far more interest than the dull brown album cover would have you believe.

Song "Pie in the Sky"
It takes photon power
And eight minutes of an hour
To make it to our sun
And I know it sounds weird
But it'll take you four years
To make the next one

Expanding border
That's the sauce
Of chaos
And that's an order
That's an order

So stomp your feet
And clap your hands
Get out of your seat
And do a little dance
Lift up your voice
And sing with glee
Now listen carefully to me

Desert your quarters
Behold the pie in the sky
And that's an order
That's an order

That's an order [7x]

Rush Ready to Unleash New Album (
Granted, these are postings from fan forums, but I've waited a while to see if any of this is panning out, and it seems that, after a couple of weeks, most of this is holding water. Most of the fans are just as anxious as I am to hear something new, but just as cautious to not jump the gun - so I'm going to start planting the seeds of hope: the new Rush album will be out May 1st , titled ...
