Pixies frontman Black Francis has announced plans to co-present a film event at the British Library.

He will be attending an evening of film and literature with Josh Frank and Steven Appleby – the co-creators of his SelfMadeHero illustrated book The Good Inn a novel about art, conflict and the pioneers of early cinema – on June 7.

The event will include a screening of Luis Buñuel and Salvador Dalí's Un Chien Andalou, and Georges Méliès's iconic 1902 film A Trip To The Moon. This will be followed by an onstage discussion with Francis, Frank and Appleby.

After the event there will be a book signing by all three of the artists. Appleby's artwork for The Good Inn will also be on display at the British Library in London on the night.

Based on a yet-to-be-written soundtrack to a movie that doesn't yet exist, The Good Inn weaves together two historical events – the explosion on the battleship Iéna at the French port of Toulon and the making of La Bonne Auberge, the earliest known pornographic film from France.

Meanwhile, Pixies recently revealed that they have "concepts" for new music in a new NME interview – click above to watch.

Joey Santiago and Dave Lovering say that although they are yet to start writing new songs, they have begun formulating ideas for follow-up material. The pair also discuss recording in the same studio as Queen laid down 'Bohemian Rhapsody' and how they dealt with the weight of expectation surrounding last month's album 'Indie Cindy', their first LP since 1991's 'Trompe Le Monde'.
