So sorry, you guys, I was definitely wrong to have intimated that, maybe, possibly, Frank Black (along with the rest of his Pixies, of course) is greedy and crass and tasteless. If he were any of those things, would he have said this?

"We're interested in anything that's going to earn us a fair wage. It's not to say it's not about art, but we made that art fucking 20 years ago. So forget the fucking goddamn art. This ain't about the art anymore. I did the arty farty part. Now it's time to talk about the money."

You get all that? It's not not about the art, but you should forget the fucking goddamn art, because it's seriously not about the art at all. [Quietus via Pitchfork]
