Jack Terricloth

Vocals / Guitar / Writer / Entertainer: Jack Terricloth

Jack Terricloth is the stage name of Peter Ventantonio, the charismatic lead singer of the cabaretpunk band The World/Inferno Friendship Society and guitarist and later vocalist of Sticks and Stones (band). Jack was born on June 11th [1],1970 and grew up in Bridgewater, NJ.

As the frontman and public face of World/Inferno, Jack advocates drinking, lying, travelling, stealing, doing drugs, keeping enemies, always looking one’s best, getting in fights, befriending hobo’s and “walking the walk,” through his lyrics, on-stage banter, and a rarely-updated advice column on the band’s website and Myspace. He also frequently claims to have invented the exclamation point and is currently in protracted litigation with Websters over this issue.

In addition, he is the author of two chapbooks, Cloth Dam Sorrow and Bakshish. The former is a book of five short stories revolving around three characters (the titular Cloth, Dam, and Sorrow), while the second book is a 13-chapter story. Both are anthologized with additional material in the hardcover “Collected Cloth”.
