His first album after the change, Bluefinger, didn't quite get it all right, but it was a good first step, and SVN FNGRS, a mini-LP that grew out of the sessions for a Bluefinger B-side, takes one more step in the right direction. It was recorded in less than a week with just a bassist and a drummer, and it sounds like Black for the most part just let things come to him and made the most natural record he could. In seven songs and about 20 minutes, he briefly touches on nearly every territory he's explored in his career. The record is led off by the oddest thing Black has done since.

Just as Black Francis' Bluefinger was a musical portrait of Dutch painter, poet, and punk rocker Herman Brood, Frank Black stays in a conceptual frame of mind with the mini-album SVN FNGRS, which draws inspiration from the Irish mythological figure Cúchulainn, who has seven fingers on each of his hands. Title aside, the album's references to Cúchulainn aren't often apparent, but what comes through loud and clear is how charged these songs are. SVN FNGRS kicks off with "The Seus," an instant classic in Black's catalog.
