Hello — We ARE the Infadels and for the many who seem confused or in need of enlightenment, this is what we are all about…

Five young(ish) men from east London — but hey, don’t let that put you off. Our names are Bnann, Matt, Wag, Richie and Al and we preach a message of love and togetherness through the popular medium of song. Founded out of the frustration of previous failed musical ventures, a love of 90’s dance music (although crucially NOT the Shamen) and rock’n’roll bands like The Stooges, The Stones and The Scream, we decided it was time to kill hum-glum wafer thin indie music and create a racket all of our own. Far too many people play it far too cool these days, don’t ya think? Time to turn those frowns upside down, uh-huh yeah. So, knowing that the music industry is terminally screwed we started releasing records ourselves, starting with “Leave Your Body” on our own Dead At Thirty imprint. One more 12" and several shambolic shows later we run out of money and shut up shop. Then Wall of Sound came a knocking waving contracts (but rest assured, not ca$h) and we thought we’d give it a serious blast. We lied to WOS, telling them we had a finished album ready for release and they seemed to go for it. We managed to hold them off for about six months but they finally saw through our cunning ruse. In comes Jagz Kooner to make sure we finish the job and after much blood sweat and tears we get there! “We Are Not The Infadels” came out in January this year and we’ve been touring it ever since. Happy days.

Misinterpreted by some but loved by many, we continue the job of doing our insane shows and writing the best songs we can. Hard work makes the world go round after all.

Still, many seem think we are loutish, lager boys who are screaming, shouting and vomiting our way round the UK and Europe . We’ll have you know that this is an unfounded lie…apart from the vomiting.

So there you are. Doesn’t make a great deal of sense does it?

Can you figure it out?
