The World/Inferno Friendship Society give you your damn soul back. It's been up all night, thinks everything is hysterical, and keeps humming tunes about Halloween and heroes, love lost and found, and the chivalry of crime. It sweats like whiskey and cries real red wine. It's chiding your friends for being so sad, mumbling, "You bouncers don't scare me one bit," and yelling "I joined a punk-rock band to break stuff, not to sit around lawyers' offices!" at inappropriate moments. Fifteen new songs by NYC's original international Punk-Rock Orchestra of elegant and angry Gentlemen and Ladies produced by Hardcore legend Don Fury and released by New Jersey Pioneer Punk-Rock label Chunksaah! The piano croons, the guitars shout, the drummers threaten, saxophones rip you from where you are tied to the mast, the accordion just stole your wallet, the string section is whispering in your ear, "don't be a jerk," and boys and girls are singing in harmony "only anarchists are ! . . . pretty!" Life is a cabaret, the circus is leaving town, don't forget the struggle, don't forget the streets.

Not too long after that fateful experience I ordered "Addicted to Bad Ideas," "Red Eyed Soul" and "Just the Best Party," and while I've been listening to all of them with an astonishing array of frequency, it's "Red Eyed Soul" that I seem to keep coming back to the most. And why not? It has the most songs on it, and it definitely showcases the...
The album that introduced me to the world inferno for fans of leftover crack and anyone who enjoys great music
If you are a fan of them, you should not even be reading reviews -- buy this CD, your troubles will disappear.
If you are not a fan, and have stumbled here unwittingly -- this is most certainly a good place to start. Brother of the Mayor of Bridgewater still is my favorite, and to kick off the record with it was a very wise decision. Actually, the first four tracks are exceedingly accessible, or at least as accessible as you can ever expect accordions and anarchists to be. If you can stay for Let's Steal Everything and Annie the Imaginary Lawyer, then you're set.
The one downside of this record is that if you have either the Speak of Brave Men EP or the Me V. Angry Mob EP (which is basically the Speak of Brave Men EP + three extra tracks), you will be hearing some familiar tunes. Never fear -- not only are they great and worth the repetition, but they even re-recorded the title track off Me V. Angry Mob, and extra versions never hurt anyone. Plus, if you...
