BLACK IS THE NEW BLACK - Petits Fours is the debut album from Grand Duchy, aka the music from Violet Clark and the legendary Frank Black (who is again going by the stage nom Black Francis.) Featuring 9 tracks, Petits Fours is the wicked joint venture between the married Clark and Francis, and contains driving bass lines, a healthy dose of synths and some excellent vocals from Clark, alongside Francis’ trademark guitar squalls. The band performed a handful of select West Coast warmup dates last month and now kick off a full US tour. Black Francis shows are also not to be missed - expect to be treated to him drawing on material from his entire career. That's a whole lot of material! We caught Grand Duchy here earlier this month:
