Catching Up On Black Francis

“I’ve stopped doing encores at my official shows, and replaced them with ‘precores’ in unusual locations, which I ask fans to come up with”-Black Francis

The video posted on top is of Black Francis being escorted by the police at a show in Dublin because 1,000 people showed up at his pre-core show which he set up to play at a park that was closed(Black Francis didn’t know this at the time). He did get to play some songs before being forced to end the show though. In the end the police just told him not do it again. I originally posted that Black Francis played some more songs down the street but as posted below that is not true. I found some excellent pictures from the frankblack forum of the actual show that night that were taken by Fionamorgan  . Check them out at

The drummer Jason Carter who plays on Bluefinger and Svn Fngrs and who is currently on the tour with Black Francis has a cool blog tracking the whole tour over at

In other news related to the new LP Svn Fngrs which is being released in a month you can check out two new songs from the album on Black Francis’ myspace at The two songs posted are Seven Fingers and When They Come To Murder Me and rank right up there with Black Francis’ best songs

    That’s incorrect. Monkey Gone To Heaven was played during the initial precore performance. Didn’t even know there was a follow-up precore, yet to find another place which backs that statement up… :/

    Thanks for the correction. I could swear I saw somewhere that Black Francis did a follow up but after looking around at the forums you’re definitely right. I will have to edit that. I envy anyone who gets to see these precores cause they look awsome.
