The Next Round - Episode 12: The World/Inferno Friendship Society

Before I even owned a turntable, one of the first LPs I bought was Red-Eyed Soul by the World/Inferno Friendship Society.  The band's sound is impossible to describe concisely, but it features scads of horns, barroom piano, violin, anarchist chants, and Jack Terricloth crooning about historical figures like Paul Robeson and Leni Riefenstahl.  It's totally unique and it totally rocks.  I went to Terricloth's local haunt to have a few drinks and discuss things like college shows, Hallowmas, and the band's upcoming album, This Packed Funeral.

World/Inferno are embarking on a mini-tour starting Friday, so check out the dates here.
