The Video - Frank Black's "Los Angeles"

I want to live in Los Angeles. Not the one in Los Angeles!

I'm always saying there really ain't enough odes to betatrons - and indeed to rugged Patagonia - in modern music!

And Frank agrees!

Yap, it's the typically part blistering, part deliciously meolodic, oddball and humorous first track on Charles Thompson's first solo LP (called, erm, Frank Black) after the collapse of Pixies, back in 1992.

The song was released as a single, backed by the rather good "I heard Ramona Sing", in March 1993.

Anyway, Frank Black Francis Thompson sure has a lot of fun on a hovercraft in the song's bizarro promo below!
