Far freaking out! "Francis Black" wasn't intentional? There seems to be a multi-level synchronicity at work here, then:
"Frank Black" the solo musician and star of "Frank Black and the Catholics" is also known as "Black Francis" of the quasi-punk group The Pixies. He is also known to be obsessed with UFOs, which occasionally feature in his work. In fact, one reviewer described his vocals on a particular Pixies song as "screaming like someone who had just seen his kid sister abducted by aliens". This is interesting in that it describes Fox Mulder of the X-Files, who in one of the few episodes of the show that accurately reflected the complex nature of the UFO phenomenon met a policeman named "Frank Black", who was actually the lead character from another show called Millennium which was basically a clone of the X-Files dealing with the occult.
