Song of the day: “Headache” by Frank Black
This song I first heard on MTV’s “120 minutes” in the eary 90’s. It’s off the incredibly overlooked post Pixies project by Frank Black, “Teenager of the Year” that album (which I had on cassette & wore out) brings back memories of my first car (a 1981 Dodge Aries) and it’s dodgy cassette player.
“Teenager of the Year”, much like Matthew Sweet’s “Girlfriend” album were almost a set of instructions for writing great songs and both albums are definately worth checking out. I also probably associate those albums with each other since I bought them at about the same time.
Wish me luck by the way I’ve been up since 4 am, have to take Logan to the dentist then a band rehearsal for that “Fantastic 5” fill in gig. It’s a long one today, & now I drive the kids to school.
