Fast Man Raider Man by Frank Black

Album reviews - Fast Man Raider Man by Frank Black

They say it's a sad day when a man stops being inspired by flying saucers and Mexican prostitutes, and so it is with Frank Black. While currently touring the world's stadiums and doing his best not to talk to Kim Deal as part of a rejuvenated Pixies, when solo. Black has always seemed keenest on satisfying himself. Here, satisfaction is a country tinged 27 track solo album recorded with Memphis session players. A rowdy bar-room cover of 'Dirty Old Town' - auld traditional slurred best by The Pogues’ Shane MacGowan  comes straight from the gut. But where Black's muse was once shrieked and otherworldly, it's now distinctly earth-bound.
