Sad news has come to us via correspondent Scott Sommer- Jack Terricloth, a legendary genre-bending Cabaret Punk artist from New York’s World/Inferno Friendship Society has died. He was 50 years old and no cause of death has been revealed. Although Jack was lone permanent member, a post was made to the bands’ social media breaking the news. Born Peter Ventantonio (June 11, 1970-May 13, 2021) he was also the guitarist and vocalist of Sticks and Stones. RIP Jack.
We are devastated to say that our guiding spirit, instigator, inciter—the person who, to most of us, lived under the name Jack Terricloth—has left us for the astral plane. We will be working on plans for a celebration of his extraordinary life. For now, we want to thank Jack for inspiring this remarkable community—something more than simply band, family, or scene—which changed the lives of so many people in ways which are hard to articulate, and which is perhaps the most enduring part of his legacy. Please raise a glass of your choice in his memory; we shall not see his like again.
