That Cult of Ray album cover is terrible. Why did I post that? Here is the Narbonne mascot. According to Frank Black himself: "They were called the Gauchos after the Argentinian Gauchos because, of course, the high school was called Narbonne High School after Narbonne, France." Makes sense.

Charles Michael Kittridge Thompson IV a.k.a Black Francis a.k.a Frank Black attended high school at Narbonne in the early '80s. A student Shazeb Andleeb was beaten to death here in 1995, the subject of the song The Last Stand Of Shazeb Andleeb off of Frank Black's third album The Cult of Ray.
