He's now spent more time as solo artist Frank Black than he ever did as Pixies front man Black Francis. His solo work, however, has never gotten the same attention. While he hopes his newest album Fast Man Raider Man will change that, he's just happy making music.

He stopped by the Current studios to talk about fasting, Oxford button downs, and to coax Mary Lucia into singing along with Tom Waits.

Songs performed:
"My Life is in Storage," "Untitled," "That Burnt Out Rock and Roll," and "Black Rider" [Web-only track].
