Ex-chief Pixie kicks back with US rockínísoul aristocracy.Frank Blackís first solo album since 1996 is a soulful treat. Recorded in Nashville with Southern grandees like Booker T & The MGs guitarist Steve Cropper and Muscle Shoals piano legend Spooner Oldham, Honeycomb eschews its authorís cartoon surf-punk roots in favour of redemptive, Van Morrison-like sophistication. Black sounds positively angelic on Selkie Bridge - a slice of timeless country-soul pie, while producer Dan Penn sings back-up on a cover of his standard, Dark End Of The Street - a song whose eye-moistening poignancy Black sounds like he was born to croon. Who knew?
Frank Black Ė Honeycomb, released 25 July 05 on Cooking Vinyl.
