Video: Black Francis narrates children’s storybook ‘Lost Sloth’ by J Otto Seibold

[In this video] Lost Sloth — illustrator J. Otto Seibold’s fantastical picture book about a narcoleptic sloth trying to make it across town in time to claim his prize of a shopping spree; and, fanboy Black Francis (aka Frank Black) — Pixies’ left-field frontman who wrote this song about an alien lost on holiday. Perfect match.

Wait, there’s more: Francis and the Guardian cartoonist Steven Appleby are reportedly collaborating on a graphic novel titled ‘The Good Inn’, to be published early next year by SelfMadeHero (UK) and Harper Collins (US). The synopsis. is. bonkers.
