The World/Inferno Friendship Society - Red-Eyed Soul
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. 15 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.

Music with soul? EMOTION??? A frontrunner for best album of 2006 by default, for it is the only album to possess such traits to be released this year.If you are sick of music being produced by fucking robots and lifeless drones like I am , this album will be amazing, and kick an unbelievable amount of ass. A revolution has begun. No longer does the world have to suffer from music lacking soul, lacking intelligence. Tattoos fade; soon the universe will be ridden of such music, if those of you would stop stocking up on Reel Big Fish and Five Iron Frenzy like it's the third World War (no pun intended). The W/IFS give you your damn soul back. It would be rude not to accept such a gift.
It's great to be here.
