50 Americana Albums You Should Hear Before You Die - The World Won't End
You'll be glad to know that it's official The World Won't End. The Pernice Brothers have spoken
The Pernice Brothers were formed in 1996 by former Scud Mountain Boy Joe Pernice (vocals/guitar/bass) and included his brother Bob ( vocals, guitar), Thom Monahan ( vocals, guitar, bass guitar, keyboards, drum programming), Mike Beltsky (drums, percussion), Laura Stein (vocals, piano, keyboards) and Payton Pinkerton (vocals, guitar, percussion, great name)
A lot of vocalists as there are a lot of harmonies. A Dorchester, Massachusetts Teenage Fanclub if you will.
The World Won't End was there second album released in 2001 after a 3 year hiatus following their 1998 debut Overcome by Happiness when Joe performed as a solo artist and as a member of Chappaquiddick Skyline. I saw him around then and am pretty sure that I also saw the Pernice Brothers
It was released on his own label Ashmont Records although mine is the UK version on Pias/Southpaw.
I also use Joe Pernice as rhyming slang for Fleece ie "Where's my Joe Pernice?"

And you got me using it. Totally lost on my partner.
Speaking as someone who lives in yer actual East End, cor blimey, I feel I should point out that the correct usage would be "Where's my Joe?". The rhyme is implied.Delete
We stand corrected my old ChinaDelete
.but we've using the "where's my Pernice" for all these years I'm not sure we can change!Delete
I'm not a purist, regional variations are acceptable. Now I'm off to queue outside Tesco to get a lovely bunch of coconuts (if they haven't run out)Delete
The power of blogs... I just placed an order for this one. I hope the music industry is listening.ReplyDelete
Thought you would already be familiar with this one BrianDelete
Excellent album, excellent band.ReplyDelete
We dun't bother wi' rhyming slang here in South Yorkshire we're just pleased to put summat on't table fer t'kids to ate an' keep wolf from t'door. As for the Pernice Brothers their best track by far is The Weakest Shade of Blue from Yours, Mine and Ours and Joe Pernice did a pretty decent cover of I'm Your Puppet which I nabbed from 27 Leggies on 13/8/2016ReplyDelete
