Biography

Brooklyn NY, United States

The World/Inferno Friendship Society is a band from Brooklyn, New York. Its style merges , , and , while its collective membership features horns, piano, guitar, a number of percussionists, as well as a variety of other instruments such as accordion, xylophone and orchestra bells.

This musical collective has historically had over 30 members, including former members of Dexys Midnight Runners. Usually one can expect to see about nine or ten members on-stage when they perform. The group is led by singer Jack Terricloth and guitarist Lucky Strano, who have been the most constant members throughout the group’s history. Terricloth is known for his pointed commentary during shows: his monologues have touched on politics, his transformation from the “old school,” and baiting of bouncers which usually end up with the band buying drinks for the whole staff.

Members have also played in Sticks and Stones, Guignol, The Hold Steady, Nanuchka, Kid Casanova, Anti-Social Music, Morning Glory, Planned Collapse, Star Fucking Hipsters, The Dresden Dolls, and have been guests on Mischief Brew, stellastarr*, Public Radio International and Leftöver Crack recordings, as well as having The Casualties, along with Paul Maroon of Jonathan Fire*Eater on guitar, make a guest appearance on the recording of “Our Candidate”.

    Damn! It was so cool that these guys opened for LC. Really got to nerd out at a great show with some people who came to see these guys and ended up staying for LC.

    Packed Funeral probably their best work since Red-Eyed Soul. I swear there's no filler on this one.

    Oh my good goddamn, this album is amazing. At the very least every bit as good as the last one.
