Frank Black

A somewhat rag-tag bag of rockstars calling themselves Thriftstore Masterpiece are releasing a collaborative remake of Lee Hazlewood’s first solo LP circa 1963, ‘Trouble Is A Lonesome Town’.

Pixies’ Frank Black, The Dandy Warhols’ Courtney Taylor-Taylor, Art Brut’s Eddie Argos and Modest Mouse’s Isaac Brock have all been involved in making the ten-track longplayer, which also features Kristin Blix, Pete Yorn, and vocals by the late Larry Norman, whose brother Charles Normal is its producer.

‘Trouble Is A Lonesome Town’ will be released via SideOneDummy on 9 Jul. Details here.

And this is Isaac Brock driving ‘The Railroad':
