Stiffs, Inc.

Stiffs, Inc.

Stiffs, Inc. was a Victorian punk band formed in New York City in 1992. They played their final show on May 24 1998.

Brought together in New York City under the name ‘Stiffs, Incorporated’, the group were active between 1992 and 1998. Their early material is influenced by 70’s English punk. Through theatrical shows and morbid lyrics they quickly developed an original style which can be described as ‘Post-Orwellian Victorian’.

The band has produced two albums along with a number of singles released on 7”/12” records. ‘Nix Nought Nothing’ (Onion) was released in 1995 and ‘Electric Chair Theatre’ (Gladglum) was released in 1997.

Paul Boering has gone on to form Beaut with Marti Domination (ex-Blacklips Performance Cult, Matthew Barney's The Cremaster Cycle).

Whitey f. Sterling has gone on to form the electronic based outfit known as umbrella brigade.
