Burnside Album Details
Clark, Violet, Killjoy
Violet Clark charges out from under the shadow of her legendary husband (and Grand Duchy band-mate), Black Francis/Frank Black (Pixies) with the release of her unabashedly defiant solo debut Killjoy on the couple's label The Bureau Records. Violet’s solo debut album Killjoy seethes with frustration. There is a perfectly good reason for that impression, and it's that she’s mad. Bad people and weird experiences can taint your world-view and make you cynical. When Violet began to realize that harnessing her pent-up anger was the key to more dynamic songwriting, she began to look at stuff that she'd previously worked hard to avoid.
