Smithereens Plan Armageddon Album

Pop-rockers the Smithereens are writing a concept album based on the theory

that the end of

the world is coming. Recording for This Is The Way The World Ends is

slated to

begin in December. "It's a cross between [the Who's] Quadrophenia

and Tommy, [horror writer] Stephen King's "The Stand," Biblical

prophecy and all these millenium issues," said singer Pat DiNizio, who has

penned 14 of a projected 24 songs for the set.
