Frank Black

changed the indie guitar world forever with his band Pixies. After seven years, in 1993, he informed his bandmates about his departing via fax. He continued his solo career as Black Francis and Frank Black. Since 2004 the Pixies are touring again and Black is also recording studio albums with his wife Violet Clark under the name Grand Duchy.

If you were stranded on a deserted island you would...
take these three books along:

Lewis Carroll: «Through the Looking Glass». Even more magic. / Suzanne Lowry: «La Vie En Rose: Living in France». A book about French interiors. We’re junkies. / «Tao Te Ching». For inspiration and direction.

take these three CDs/records with you:
Chet Baker - Chet Baker & Crew

A mood for every song.

Hall & Oates - Greatest Hits

A song for every mood.

Georg Philipp Telemann - Classical Baroque

So fucking pretty.

take these three DVDs along:

«Sleeper» by Woody Allen. The funniest, coolest movie ever. / «Brazil» by Terry Gilliam. This movie never gets old. / «The Wizard Of Oz» by Victor Fleming. For the magic. We feel like children again whenever we watch this movie.

take these three games along:

a deck of cards – a thousand games in one. / a Wii / Scrabble – Violet is addicted to words.

start to learn these three things:

photography (we’ll need a creative outlet.) / ancient greek (for mental stimulation. / Bikram Yoga (to support the body-as-temple paradigm. We’ll have a bit more time for this on the island than we do surrounded by children at home.)

miss these three things the most about living in a city:

good espresso – oh god, what is life without this? / rose champagne – now we are getting really depressed! / people – we don’t want to talk, just look. It’s lonely without them.

invite these three persons for a weekend:

John Waters (Mr. Francis pointed out that he seems like a fun guy.) / Woody Allen (Probably will be a nervous wreck on the island, but we will distract him with philosophical musings.) / Angelina Jolie (Not because she’s gorgeous, but because she’s a mommie, like Violet, and she is intelligent and worldly… and a badass).

get these three pets:

a persian cat (They are beautiful, exotic and aloof.) / a tropical fish (They are colorful and funky.) / a sea tortoise (Because we could ride him like a jet ski.)

learn these three songs by heart:
Taco - Puttin’ On The Ritz
Sergei Wassiljewitsch Rachmaninow

Anything by Sergei Wassiljewitsch Rachmaninow. That should keep us busy for a long while.

Adam & The Ants - Stand And Deliver

Funny and tough at the same time… a classic.

take these three tools with you:

iron skillet. Anything you could ever want to eat can be cooked in this and will taste fantastic. / a measuring tape. Violet is obsessed with measuring for built-ins. One can never have enough storage. / a good sharp knife. What’s not to like?
