Teenage Fanclub's Norman Blake, the Sadies' Mike Belitsky and Joe Pernice Form the New Mendicants
The trio go by the name of the New Mendicants. Their six-song Australia 2013 E.P. features three original tunes, a cover of "This Time" by INXS, and new versions of two previous songs by Pernice and Blake, respectively. Listen to the INXS cover at the bottom of the page.
As the title indicates, Australia 2013 E.P. was made so that Pernice and Blake would have something to sell during their upcoming tour Down Under. Belitsky will be staying at home for this trek, which runs from late January to early February.
For fans who won't be able to catch the New Mendicants live, you can purchase the limited-edition EP on CD via Pernice Brothers' online store.
Brooklyn Vegan reports that Pernice's former band, the roots-oriented Scud Mountain Boys, have a new album on the way later this year. This will be their first album since 1996's Massachusetts. A new Pernice Brothers album is reportedly in the works too.
