Wow, my first show at Maxwell's was Frank Black - I remember he kicked some dude out when he was freaking out during a Pixies song.

He boasted for this album that he wrote and recorded it in 5 days total and they used all first takes and, you know what? It sounds like exactly that.

Put a little more effort into it, ya fat bastard so you don't sound so goddamned mediocre.

And, I really love some of his solo stuff (Teenager of the Year and Black Letter Days, to be precise). Just not this album. Pass on seeing them perform this half-assed crap live.

Spot on!! Love this song so much. I'm a fan of Reid, but what a brilliant career Black Francis has had. Another wonderful moment from my musical idol......
