Trompe le Monde cover

Trompe le Monde


The hits have been written, the canon has charted, and the world they created has taken over—namely, Nirvana. So what now? Black  Francis and the gang cover The Jesus and Mary Chain (“Head On”), write some late peak classics (“Alex Eiffel,” “Space (I Believe In),” “Planet of Sound”) and generally romp around on Elektra’s dime. Shiny and fun.
