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?"
