The World/Inferno Friendship Society
The World/Inferno Friendship Society
The World/Inferno Friendship Society are a gang of dangerous loonies who like to break things, and who have been making beautiful, orchestral punk rock records since 1997. The World/Inferno Friendship Society consist of 7 to 13 life-long 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, several drummers, snarling guitars, low B bass, and whomever else gets in the bus. The World/Inferno Friendship Society is fronted by an undead Sherlock Holmes, who had his exploits profiled in the NY Times Arts Section for the multi-media stage version of the group’s last record Addicted to Bad Ideas. On their new release The Anarchy and The Ecstasy, Inferno hope to make you dance, laugh and cry -- often in the same song. With their full horn section, baby grand piano, punk guitar, 5 string bass and dueling male and female vocals, this freedom fighting, punk-as-world-music cult channels Phillip K. Dick, Kurt Weill and Jonathan Richman on their 13th release.
