The New Mendicants debut ‘Australia 2013’ E.P. is out today.
The trio of Joe Pernice (Pernice Brothers & Scud Mountain Boys), Norman Blake (Teenage Fanclub) and drummer Mike Belisky (The Sadies) are currently recording a debut album for release in early 2014.
For now, and by way of an introduction, the ‘Australia 2013’ E.P. boasts three new compositions, an unexpected and lovely INXS cover, and revisits Teenage Fanclub’s ‘I Don’t Want Control Of You’ and The Pernice Brothers ‘Amazing Glow’ for good measure.
Joe Pernice’s Scud Mountain Boys 27 track classic album ‘The Early Year’ is also available on iTunes (here) as of today.
The New Mendicants bring a two-man show (Norman & Joe) to these shores for live dates in July.
