I haven’t thought about this record in over ten years, but while traveling back East a couple of weeks ago the song “Los Angeles” off the LP was playing on the radio which spawned an excellent conversation about just how great the accompanying video was. RE: Frank Black driving a hovercraft through the southern California desert singing about an L.A. in an alternate universe. No one really did space-alien weird quite like Black Francis and this early incarnation of Frank Black.
Watch the video below – check out the MP3 and give Black’s spin on The Beach Boys “Hang On To Your Ego” a whirl. It’s like it’s 1993 all over again. Kinda.
