Teenage Fanclub’s Norman Blake and the Pernice Brothers’ Joe Pernice have recorded an album, Lime, together under the name, The New Mendicants. It will be released January 28, 2014.
According to the Pernice Brothers website:
They’re called The New Mendicants, named I would imagine, for the Mendicant Friars, an order of Catholic monks who depend entirely upon charity for their livelihood.
Meanwhile, lower in this post you can hear a Christmas song from the guys, plus a track off the album.
Ands Joe Pernice tells Brooklyn Vegan that a new Pernice Brothers album, to be titled either Spread the Feeling or It’s a Long Way Up, will be released in 2014 as well.
