Wow, great find. Thought this project was long long long cancelled. Frank Black last spoke about this back in 2008/2009?

I'll type something up later today.

Here's the article for those who don't remember it: http://www.interstate-8.com/news.php?newsid=113

Was actually Brock talking about it, not Black.

Wow, I completely forgot about this after not hearing anything for so long. Very cool that it's finally seeing the light of day. I'm listening to "The Railroad" right now, and it's pretty cool. Weird to hear Brock's voice in a completely different context from Modest Mouse's style, but it works.

I've listened to this about twenty-five times already, it's strangely addictive! Ike stays fairly true to the original but the tempo is much more upbeat/tavern drinking chanty-like in his version. the original is quieter and more folky.

this could be on a UC album.
