REID PALEY & BLACK FRANCIS - PALEY & FRANCIS

PALEY & FRANCIS

The debut of PALEY & FRANCIS.

Ten songs written and performed by Reid Paley & Black Francis.

We wrote the music for the songs in Paley's apartment in Brooklyn over three afternoons
when Francis was in New York for a three day run at Joe's Pub. After which we each took
half of the songs to finish off with lyrics. Francis went off to meet what he sometimes liked
to call "the old band" for another tour. A few days later, we were recording in Nashville.

Featuring Muscle Shoals legends Spooner Oldham and David Hood.
Produced by Jon Tiven.

APPROXIMATE  HELLHOUND

More timeless tunes from “one of America’s best and most underrated songwriters."

Belted out with a pitch-black sense of humor and an alarming eloquence
by Brooklyn’s apocalyptically original and internationally acclaimed
singer-songwriter and his white-hot trio.

Featuring the animal magnetism and frightening charisma of
Mr. Eric Eble on the Czechoslovakian upright bass,
and Mr. James Murray working that trap kit.
And Paley bangs on the Gretsch.
