It’s a small world. The other night after emailing a friend from university days, I was prompted to try an online search for another friend from that time, whom I lost touch with over a decade a go when she left the country. And a name and country of last known residence plus Google put us back in touch again! Small world indeed.
Anyhow to celebrate this, here’s a song from the year we last met:
Frank Black – Hang On To Your Ego (from ‘Frank Black’)
Frank’s self-titled debut solo LP was not particularly warmly received by the press at the time. But it’s a record which to me holds up well. The above track was the single from the record with Mr Black emphasising his surf roots by not only by releasing a Brian Wilson song as his first post-Pixies material but also by sticking a 10 minute track called ‘Surf Epic’ as one of the B’s.
