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. 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 15 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".

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"
