The Devil’s Ball – THE WORLD/INFERNO FRIENDSHIP SOCIETY

The World/Inferno Friendship Society (also referred to as “World Inferno”, or “Inferno”) is an American band from Brooklyn, New York. Its style merges punk, soul, klezmer and jazz, while its collective membership features horns, piano and guitar and has a membership of about 40 players, of whom only about seven to ten active members usually perform at a time. The group was led by singer Jack Terricloth, who was the only constant during the group’s history. Terricloth was known for his pointed commentary during shows; his monologues touched on politics and his transformation from the “old school”. Its lyrics often concern historical or biographical subjects, such as Weimar-era Germany, Peter Lorre, Jeffrey Lee Pierce of The Gun Club, Paul Robeson, Leni Riefenstahl, Dante Alighieri, Philip K. Dick, and Jonathan Fire*Eater.

Convenience is the devil’s tongue
Honesty it’s the devil’s foreplay
Circus folk you say, time to slip away
It seems I’ve played this scene before you know and
Anything could happen
The night before the day of the dead
Boys and girls they’ve always said,
â#128##156#Arbor days, look forward to themâ#128##157#
Arbor days, cherish them
Though our parents’ parents and our parents’ friends always say,
â#128##156#Arbor days, deny themâ#128##157#
Our children’s children and our children’s friends
Sipping chocolate on the day of the dead
Confusion is the devil’s cool
True love it’s the devil’s crowbar
A party you say, well I might stay
I’d love to make the scene ‘cause you know
Anything could happen
The day after the day of the dead
Boys and girls, they’ve always said,
â#128##156#Arbor days look forward to themâ#128##157#
Arbor days, cherish them
Though our parents’ parents and our parents’ friends always say,
â#128##156#Arbor days, deny themâ#128##157#
Our children’s children and our children’s friends
Stealing chocolate on the day of the dead
Who spilled the wine? Every goddamn time
Easy come, but please don’t go
Tonight is the devil’s ball, you could come every fall
We’ll dance and scream and burn ‘cause you know that
Anything could happen
