SORT BY Relevancy
Name someone who has had more influence over the flow of modern rock -- where noise and rhythm meet mystery and beauty -- over the last 25 years than Charles Thomson, aka Black Francis, aka Frank Black. Black Francis is the stage name adopted by Thompson during his years of global domination with the Pixies, from the group's '86 formation in Boston until 1993 when the winds of change blew. (And oh, was there joy in Mudville when the Pixies reuned and toured anew beginning in 2004!)
Thompson's next nom de rock was as Frank Black, often in the bandleading context of Frank Black and the Catholics. Thompson released many a wondrous album under his Frank Black moniker, demonstrating an ear for skewed but perfect rock songsmanship. He returned to the Black Francis name for '07's rocking Bluefinger, a concept album about the life and death of Dutch painter/rocker Herman Brood.
Still working under as Black Francis, he released the sexually charged NonStopErotik in 2010. Abbabubba, a B-sides and demos collection, arrived in 2011, along with The Golem, Francis' score for the 1920 silent film of the same name. Rejoice! Black Francis is hitting the road this very week with Reid Paley:

, my name is Jan, and I am an author of three published books. I am sending you this message on the basis of a referral from one of my internet friends, with whom I have been in contact for a while. He knows that I am an author, and he also knows that due to the fact that I am classified disabled due to the fact that I suffer from bi-polar/schizo-effective disorder, adhd, and severe agoraphobia, that I do not have a whole lot of money or ways to let people know about my books. He suggested that I contact you and told me that you do shows on people who are trying to make their dreams come true. Well, I am casting myself upon your mercy and praying that you will read the manuscript for my last published book that i am including as an attachment with this email, along with two different versions of advertising fliers I created to try to promote the books. The fliers list all of the links where you can get the books. All of the artwork on the covers of all three of the books is mine, as are the interior graphics on all three books. I am fifty two years old, and I am living in government housing. I have been trapped here for eighteen years, and I do not want to die here. The story that I am sending you is the last one written and published. It is a fantasy story filled with pixies, dragons, magic and adventure. Please ma'am, would you at least take the time to read it and see if it is worthy enough to possibly promote on your show?
You may reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 1-903-844-8416 1-903-844-8416 .
I will be anxiously and prayerfully awaiting your response. All I ask is that you please not leave me waiting too long, for both hope and faith are dimming fast.

Face The King is an independent alternative hard rock band based out of New York that has redefined the New York rock scene with their arena size sound, both live and on record.
Face The King is Eric Zirlinger (vocals, guitar, keyboards), Dan DelVecchio (lead guitar, keyboards, backup vocals), Joey Dammacco (bass, synth, backup vocals), and Randy Palumbo (drums, percussion). Their second EP, “The Burning & The Falling Down,” produced by Steve Haigler (Brand New, The Pixies, Fuel) has received critical praise and glowing reviews in print, on the web, and local/out of state radio.
With their newly released preview EP, "THE SOUND," already receiving high praise in anticipation for their full length album, Face The King is touring the New York tri-state area - recently with a packed headlining show at Gramercy Theatre. They are also three time winners of the Ernie Ball Battle of The Bands, making their first appearances at the Rockstar UPROAR Festival and Vans Warped Tour during the summer of 2012 (w/Staind, Shinedown, Godsmack, New Found Glory, Yellowcard, Juliet Simms, & more), and a second Vans Warped Tour appearance during the summer of 2013 for their hometown crowd at Nassau Coliseum. Believing that the live show is an experience that is shared between the band and the audience, Face The King is earning a reputation as a band you need to experience live. Face The King is not waiting for a label to hand them a deal – they are earning it the way it was meant to be earned: by hitting the road and making new fans. Face the King returns on Tuesday, August 13, at 8:30pm EST.

For ‘The Art’ it began in Newtown, Sydney where singer, Azaria, and bass player, KJ, shared a house and started a band. They quickly established themselves within the local underground scene under the name of ‘The Follow’. Their edgy, fast-paced, live shows gained not only local success, but also caught the attention of Lee Ranaldo (Sonic Youth) who produced their first album and invited them to tour Australia with ‘Sonic Youth’.
Armed with a new album “Here Comes The War”, ‘The Art’ came back to Australia in late 2009 to nationally support Marilyn Manson, followed by performances at Big Day Out, and opening for Them Crooked Vultures. Without missing a beat they scored the national Australian and NZ tour with one of their biggest influences, The Pixies, on the ‘Dolittle’ 20 year Anniversary Tour. The band stayed on the road throughout the year supporting 30 Seconds to Mars and The Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, in conjunction with their first headlining tour of Australia as The Art.
Fresh off another international tour support across Australia with Linkin Park in late 2010, ‘The Art’ wasted no time signing a deal with Silverback Records and Insomnia Management and put the wheels into motion for the release of their most recent album “Here Comes The War”. The album was remastered and re-released in Australia, the UK, and the US by Rocket Science in August 2012. After a three week tour in Australia with Steel Panther, the band will return to the US in February 2013 to tour with Faster p*ssycat before heading to the UK in June with the group.
