The World/ Inferno Friendship Society
The World/Inferno Friendship Society, a gang of dangerous loonies who like to break things, is
coming to your town. Bringing their newest album, “This Packed Funeral” released on California
based Alternative Tentacles Records in the band's unique punk rock cabaret style, the ten tracks
on the LP feature their signature critically acclaimed romantic tangoing/violent break up
inducing mayhem while expanding previously unexplored territory combining contrapuntal
fugue, the rhythmic percussion of a New Orleans Funeral March and classic the hardcore punk
sounds of Code Of Honor, TSOL and The Damned.
Check out the World/Inferno Friendship Society’s
Dolce Far Niente lyric video and select tracks off the new album at:
The World/Inferno Friendship Society consist of 7 to 13 members who enthusiastically delight in
encouraging all who identify as youth, both young and old, to change the system. They come
armed with cascading piano, ace saxophones, snarling guitars, low B bass, and whomever else
gets in the bus. The World/Inferno Friendship Society is fronted by Jack Terricloth, who had his
exploits profiled in the NY Times Arts Section for the multi-media stage version of the group’s
record “Addicted to Bad Ideas” [http://www.nytimes.com/2009/01/08/arts/music/08worl.html].
WORLD/INFERNO FRIENDSHIP SOCIETY combine their skills to create a style that is equal
parts punk, soul, klezmer and jazz, featuring horns, piano, guitar and a lot of boys and girls with
very sharp teeth with a must-see stage charisma rivaling Slim Cessna's Auto Club. The ensemble
has over 40 members, Joining Terricloth once more, is co-founding member of this bizarre gang
of dangerous loonies, Scott Hollingsworth, is back and in the producer's/piano stool and will be
touring with the band on keys.
The band been making beautiful, orchestral punk rock records since 1995, They originally
signed with the eerily prescient NJ Hardcore label Gern Blandsten (Ted Leo, Radio 4,
Rorschach, The Liars) with whom they released 2 albums: “The True Story of The Bridgewater
Astral League”(1997), “Just The Best Party” (2002) and a gang of singles which were compiled
on “East Coast Super Sound Punk of Today!” (2000). They have toured incessantly for the last
20 years, prompting one NPR spokesman to comment that the amount of jobs they have been
fired from to go on the road would be “enough to save the present economy”
Blood on the Harp
Hailing from Atlanta, GA, Blood on the Harp bills themselves as simply, Songs about Death. This Americana/Folk string band is a ghostly tribute to the unfortunate struggles that life brings, as written and told by singer/frontman Miguel Olascuaga. Backed by punk rock, jazz, classical violin, and outlaw influences, BOTH bring out the call of the grave. Combined, this band is a solemn turn of the century gospel melody with a modern day string band fusion.
