We’re delighted to announce the debut Irish performance of The New Mendicants, a new project from Norman Blake of Teenage Fanclub and Joe Pernice of Pernice Brothers. They are currently working on an album for release later this year. Along with new material, their live sets include Teenage Fanclub & Pernice Brothers classic and the odd cover. Check them out:
Finding you (Go-Betweens) & Follow me down
Finding themselves new neighbors in Canada, Glasgow- born Norman Blake and Joe Pernice from Massachusetts began a low-key collaboration in a Toronto tavern. Their performances were marked by plenty of banter, open-tunings and sublime pop smarts. Now they bring their two-man show to the UK and Europe under the guise of
The New Mendicants. Two of the most sublime and revered songwriters of the ‘90’s, Blake and Pernice between them have founded Teenage Fanclub, Scud Mountain Boys, BMX Bandits and Pernice Brothers. Performing together on stage, they delve into each other’s hefty back catalogues as well as their
new material. They are currently working on a full length album which they expect to release later this year.
Strictly over 18′s, I.D. may be required.
