Sticks And Stones

Strife And Times

(Members From World Inferno Friendship Society, Johnny X And The Conspiracy, Zero Zero)

Chunksaah 17

Released on September 30, 2003

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!

At a critical time in NJ punk history (late 80's-mid 90's) Sticks & Stones stirred the youth with their aggressive lead guitar and folk-based rhythms, a straight-forward beat numerous overlapping vocal melodies. Truly ahead of their time musically, they also seem truly doomed. Members went on to form World/Inferno Friendship Society, Johnny X & The Conspiracy, and Zero Zero. A great complete anthology here.

I bought this album having not heard any of it really but because it had members from world/inferno and it was a good deal. It ended up being a let down. Its a pretty basic band.

There's something about the Jersey sound that always stands out to me over all the other punk scenes. Sticks and Stones is one of the biggest influences ever on that scene (even on the Bouncing Souls). This is worth the buy, especially for disc two.

I bought this having only heard 2 or 3 of their songs, but as a dedicated follower of the World/Inferno Friendship Society, who's singer, Jack Terricloth, fronted Sticks and Stones under the monicker Pete Ventantonio. Band history aside, this is an amazing anthology. It takes you through, well, the strife and times of Sticks and Stones. The first CD has their beginnings as a New Jersey punk band, and then as a more serious punk band with (to the scene's dismay) keyboards. If you're part of a shitty scene, then you can seriously relate to these songs. Also it has some good covers (DK's, Springsteen, Blondie, and others). Best songs on CD 1 are Saved, Less Than Free, Contempt, Reason To Care, Story, Blindness, and Dreaming (Blondie cover).

The second CD has their two LPs "Theme Song for Nothing," and "The Optimist Club." The former has a great upbeat feeling to it albeit depressing, yet poignant, lyrics. There are a few slower ones in there as well, making for a good mix. Also it has a redone version of Saved that is down right amazing. The "Optimist Club" has a much darker and more mature sound to it, and a cover of Synchronicity II by the Police. Best songs on CD 2 are Theme Song for Nothing, Saved, Grasping at Straws, Synchronicity II, Thanks for the Cash, and Home. The last song, "Home" is Jack playing and singing with just an acoustic guitar, while a tape of the band's van burning down is in the background.

This CD is pretty much the greatest piece of music one can ever own. It's a damn shame that nobody liked these guys when they were around, and now they only play on surprise dates.

Oh and Johnny X of Bouncing Souls fame is their guitar player.

Just amazing. One of the best and most influential punk bands that has ever existed. Simply you must listen to them. I've had this in my CD player for weeks. It's just amazing from start to finish, truly legends for all time.
