A couple of weeks ago, we reported on an incident involving World/Inferno Friendship Society frontman, Jack Terricloth and Adicts drummer, Kid. The story included a statement from Jack Terricloth himself, claiming that Kid punched him in the face, subsequently leading to WIFS being removed from the duration of the tour.
It felt odd that Kid didn’t release his own statement so Dying Scene went on the prowl, and in the middle of Punk Rock Bowling, found Kid himself. As luck would have it, I stumbled upon him midway through the re-telling of the incident to his nephew ‘Luke Ramone’. When asked what happened, Kid responded with, “I’ve got nothin to say.” I prodded, reminding him that Jack had released a statement, and I would just like to hear his side of it.
Read what happened here.
“Let him release [statements].” Kid barked back. “I don’t release statements, I don’t even go on the internet. I don’t own a phone so it don’t fuckin’ bother me.” I kept digging. “But there’s always another side.”
“Well I didn’t hit him,” Kid insisted.
DS: “So what happened then?”
Kid: “Nothin’, just a mindless…like…get out my way. Like I said it’s nothing personal with him, and all that, it’s just a minor little thing where I said get out my way, and it could’ve been him or anybody. He would’ve punched me. I was trying to get backstage and get a drink. It’s nothin’ personal, they’re a nice bunch of kids. He was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.”
“You know the best part of it is (with a smile) – I don’t watch the internet, I don’t watch the media, and I don’t give a fuckin’ flyin’ piss.”
At this point I was told, that’s enough, and my recorder was turned off. After this, Kid went on to explain that it wasn’t necessarily the “incident” that led to WIFS being removed from the tour, but more so the dramatics that occurred afterwards. This included a “representative” for Jack coming to The Adicts dressing room demanding that Kid go apologize to Jack.
So here you have it. Some sort of both sides to the story. Now it is up to you to figure out the real truth!
