Black Francis: Borderline, London

Roy Wilkinson, Sounds, November 1990

UP THE ROAD, veteran boogie-metal beasts Blackfoot are packing the Marquee but Charles F easily outbids them in the none-blacker rock stakes. For wandering on stage, Black Francis picks up his guitar and screams into 'Tame'. In total darkness. 

Total word count of piece: 428
