CD Reviews

One of the best Mini albums
Omer Belsky | Haifa, Israel | 02/07/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"One of Frank's very best. This has four songs, two original and two covers. Handyman is just great "come on come on come on " Frank shouts, and you do. The Man Who was Too Loud is also Great, but It was better done in 'FB& The Catholics". the Jaquis Tasti is one of Frabk's best songs, and in 'sister Isabel' both Frank and the Teenage Fanclub are at their very best"

"it should seem odd that i'm just now getting around to purchasing this cd. i've been a fan of frank black for almost two years now (i could kick myself for not discovering him, and the pixies, sooner..., but teenage fanclub were never really my cup of tea. i did, however, recently fork over the money for this decidedly excellent, albiet very short (less than fifteen minutes) disc.all four songs here are very solid, particularly "the jaques tati", which in my opinion is one of the best pure rock songs frank black has ever penned (and, believe me, that's saying something.)even though the price almost guarantees this album is only heard by fans of black or TFC, i could earnestly recommend it to anyone even remotely interested in good, uniquely intelligent music."
Black and the Fannies crank up the amps

"This is an excellent little EP. You wouldn't think that Frank Black's melancholy howl would make an ideal counterpart to Teenage Fanclub's feelgood melodies. However, on this set, which comprises two fantastic Black-penned numbers ("The Man Who Was Too Loud" and "Jacques Tati") and two well chosen covers, the Glaswegians show that they can rock with the best of 'em, even the King of Alternative Rock himself.The Fannies provide a coruscating backing throughout, not without their melodic genius, (check out the fabulous outro to "Jacques Tati" and the intro to "Sister Isabel"), while Black's off-kilter genius shines throughout. Go buy."
