"[Kim Deal] wanted to write songs for [the Pixies], but we already had a songwriter - me, you know? We would try to learn her songs during rehearsals, but it just wasn't working. The rest of the band would just look at each other."

Happy one-week BDay!
Dave Noisy (1300 PST)

Hey everyone, it's been a week! In that time we've put together a team to work on the website, put the message board up, and had almost 100 people sign up, include Frank himself, and Scott the drummer. (As well as a few other rock celebs!)

Gone Live
Dave Noisy (0014 PST)

Woo! We thought this moment would never happen! Thanks to the leak on the Forum, we figured we should get the site ship-shape and get as much as we can online. That means not much! There's a few tabs ready to go, and the outlines for most of the sections, we're welcome to contributions and suggestions! We hope you enjoy!

New Tabs
Dave Noisy (0020 PST)

Derek has been sending them over, and i've been making them available to the masses - now Teenager of the Year is fully tabbed and online, along with the first Self Titled album and Dog in the Sand. I believe Devil's Workshop will be the next luck album!

There's also a new write-up in the Web Team Bio section.

Several in-store appearances have 'appeared', and now appear on our listing as well. It appears we're up to date.

There's also a show in Philly added for Nov 21st, and shows on Dec 4th and 5th. Happy early xmas Little Rock and Dallas!

Also, let the record show i updated the appearance of the Forum late last night. The riots seem to be at a minimum, so i'm guessing you people like them. =)

Is anyone actually paying attention to these news updates? Can my semi-secretive headlines actually get peoples' attention? Is the bread ever kept in the breadbox??

Yes, so thanks to the spectacular Zan (where's your bio?? Don't make me make up shit for you!) we've got bio's on all the Catholics (except FB - go figure!) Lotsa great info there, go read!

Zanni Manitoba
Dave Noisy (1059 PST)

Two updates to the site today:

One is that we now have a bio on our FB Bio Collections Officer Zan!

The other is that we have made our FTP site public, and the first file on it is a new song from Frank called 'Manitoba', recorded from the CBC show '>play'. Check the Forum for more details. I'll set up a page for this some time in the future.

I guess if i do a few more updates i can justify the News Archive - yip! This is really starting to feel like a website!

Hope everyone had a great Hallow'een! Anyone dress up as FB or a Catholic? haha..

Elf Droppings
Dave Noisy (1352 PST)

Zan the Bio Elf (formerly known as the Bio Collector) has updated Frank's FB.Net Bio.

Also, people should be careful of what they say..i happened across this page while looking on Google to see how many sites mention this one. Pretty funny. =P

(TIP: Search for 'Dave'.)

News For Once!
Dave Noisy (0002 PST)

Yes. It's been a while. Frank has been busy touring all over the US, lot's of great reviews and photos in the Forum. It's been hella-busy as well! Over 350 members now, and over 6000 messages posted, who'd've thunk??

On the site, we have photos for Zan and myself in the Web Team section.

Also, tab for Black Letter Days and Pistolero are in the Tab section.

A Photo Album will appear when i feel the motivation to create such a section. =)

Still Not Dead!
Dave Noisy (1300 PST)

Welcome to the newsless news page! Home of the news that's not really happening.

Frank's done touring for a while, and the rumor mill is busy, churning out false-hopes of when and where he'll be next.

A few updates to the site:

* tab page updated with COR and FB&TC albums (thanks again to Derek!)

* Joey Santiago has been added to the Bio section, and Rich, Dave P and Frank's pages has been updated (Zan's doing a great job with these!)

* Bio pages have been added for Derek and Gavin (more creds to Zan!)

And i think that's about it for now..back to our regular casting of the Cone of Silence.

Oh yeah, photo album..still working on that..
