Frank Black Fridays

So I have been a little bored over here in blog-land, and I decided to start a weekly instalment of Frank Black Fridays.  For those of you who dont know, Frank Black (Black Francis) gained fame in the early 80`s as the frontman for the Pixies.  After that he went solo and released a self titled album before going on to start another band called Frank Black and the Catholics. 

This song is one of my favorites off of that self titled album. It is called Calistan, and it is about the Kings Highway (El Camino Real) which was the original road built by the missionaries to connect all of Father Sierras missions here in California.   Check it out and let me know what you think….
