ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Don Everett Pearce dishes up the character portraits once again.

Among the characters to be found in The Last Dive in Town are; a restless suburbanite dying to get out of his hometown (“Lonely Town”), teenage lovers in their fast food uniforms (“The First”), a neo-50s cigarette girl with an attitude (“Alleycats”), a transplanted New Yorker ripping on Los Angeles (“Downtown NYC”), a neon motel dweller awaiting the bulldozer (“Silver Moon Motel”), a friendly barmaid with an overzealous fan club (“Everybody Loves Joan”) and other assorted late-night, nightspot, streetlight wanderers with stories to tell and things to get off their chests.

Recorded in Brooklyn, NY with a full band, as well as in a small apartment in L.A. with just a guitar & vocal, this album ranges from ragged garage rock to intimate acoustic folk to strident Americana to retro balladry with a natural ease.

Fans of the Stones, early Springsteen, Paul Westerberg, early Tom Waits and Bob Dylan will likely find something to sink their teeth into on this album.

Anthony Lee Collins


This new CD is worth successor to "Brutish Little Ballet," and a logical next step as well. The sound is similar to the previous CD, an original mix of Elliott Murphy, Springsteen, and even a bit of Tom Waits, but this time there's a bit more of an edge, the sound a bit more raw.

Pearce is a battered romantic with a keen eye, a folkie singer-songwriter who was once (and you can tell) a punk rocker, and a storyteller who will slip into a different musical style here and there if that's the best way to
tell the tale he wants to tell you today. But the center of the sound is usually Pearce's conversational voice and the versatile electric guitar of Steve Antonakos, though a few songs on this CD were recorded in a simple "at home" style that makes a good contrast to the harder rockers.

(Oh, and don't forget to get "Hope and Anchor," an EP recorded between the two full-length efforts.)
