Before jumping to his death, Dutch painter Herman Brood lived a life of sex, drugs and rock & roll. Where bands such as U2 have dedicated live performances to Brood after his 2001 passing, Charles Thompson, a.k.a. Frank Black — who here reverted to his Black Francis moniker from his Pixies days — dedicated an album to Brood, including this Pixies-like punker about sex, drugs and suicide. "I have my own impressions as to what his painting 'Threshold Apprehension' was all about," he said. "My song 'Threshold Apprehension' has nothing to do with the painting except that it, and my record Bluefinger, has everything to do with my impressions of Herman Brood."
