"I see the checks when they come in the mailbox, and I thank all my patrons very much.... they should probably stop buying my records for a while so I can go on a diet."
(Frank Black - BBC Interview.)

Bang The Drum
Cult of Frank (22:27 PST)

In the spirit of the Italians singing from their balconies, Frank Black has an idea to share joy and show solidarity in this time of crisis. From the man himself:

"When I was a boy, we used to bang pots and pans outside at midnight on New Year's Eve. I've been inspired seeing those clips of the quarantined Italians singing from their balconies. I propose this action to you today:

No matter your state of health or political views or age or education or philosophy, I ask you to greet the night at 6 PM local time by banging the pot long enough so that I can hear you, but not so long that you disturb our present contemplation.

If you have no pot to play then play two spoons; play your tune on your porch and in your garden and at your window sill. And if you are feeling too ill to come to the window, I hope you will hear us banging for you and you can smile with us!

I'll be listening for you tomorrow night and every night at 6 PM.

On that note, we at FrankBlack.Net wish all of you, your friends, families, and communities, health and a return to a life more filled with community and each other as soon as possible.

Asia Dates Postponed
Cult of Frank (20:05 PST)

Pixies has announced that their Japan dates have been postponed. They were scheduled to play Kangawa, Tokyo, and Osaka Feb 24-26 respectively. In addition, though not formally announced, three dates in China also no longer appear on their tour schedule. They had been scheduled to appear in Shanghai Feb 29, Beijing March 1, and Kowloon March 2. So far, their dates in Australia remain scheduled.

No official reason was provided, but there is certainly speculation that the recent outbreak of Corona virus is at least part of the cause. Offically, the dates are postponded and not cancelled outright, so there is still hope for fans that a replacement show may be scheduled.

Server Migrated
Cult of Frank (16:42 PST)

Hi all! After far too long languishing on an old server run by a hamster wheel, we've retired the hamster and bought a bigger wheel. As far as we can tell, things are working that haven't worked in years and we're hoping to track down bugs and make some updates - hopefully with some help!

If you're interested in helping us update content, please drop us a line on the forum of via my contact page. Thanks!

-Dean
