The World / Inferno Friendship Society
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” [].
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”
Punk band from Lake Worth, Florida.
Dollar Signs
Dollar Signs
Too fast for folk shows! Too quiet for punk shows! Too serious for comedy gigs! Too funny for art gallery openings!

Started in 2009 Dollar Signs uses music as a vessel to poke fun at the music scene, the audience, and most of all, themselves. Incorporating bitter honesty with a tongue-in-cheek sarcasm Dollar Signs shouts their way through exploring topics of loneliness, alcoholism, dilapidated apartments, and of course, fast food. Really though, Dollar Signs just does this to sell t-shirts and pick up girls.
The Ghost of Saturday Nite
The Ghost of Saturday Nite
The year is 2006 machines, gadgets, and electronic devices conquer man. But, not all are under the spell of these electronics, But not are under the spell of the electronic gizmos. After all, how do you give a machine emotion or a soul? You can't! Rock an Roll isn't dead! Even though the clubs are packed with one man synth acts and some lame guy playing his iPod, while getting paid more than the artists' he plays! . AH, but there's still a few street fighting men! The freedom fighters of the new frontier. Carrying the torch of old, while arming the troops with electric guitars and microphones! With weapon in hand, the Ghost of Saturday Nite, March forward! Singing battle Hymns of struggle, freedom, hope, and glory." - by Kerry Martinez of Shattered Faith, The Bad Luck Charms, and U.S. Bombs

the Ghost of Saturday Nite formed in Raleigh NC in 2006. Two of GoSN's members and two of their songs were featured on the supergroup Teenage Time Killers' Greatest hits Vol 1.

Influenced from the the Clash, Dead Boys, the Wipers, New York Dolls, as well as the Sonics and Last, also newer bands like Rocket from the Crypt, the Bronx, and the Exploding Hearts.
