(The) Infadels on Morning Becomes Eclectic Tuesday

British dance-alt-rock group The Infadels will perform live on KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic Tuesday, May 2nd at 11:15 AM PST. You can also listen to the entire show after it airs, and video and audio of the Infadels' appearance will be available sometime after the show as well.

There's a fair amount of buzz surrounding the band and their album, We Are Not The Infadels. The band does, however, seem to have a hard time deciding whether they are "Infadels" or "The Infadels":

If you haven't heard enough from them to know much about their sound or whether you like it, just play music Mad Libs as follows:

To describe Infadels, for the next couple months, sound enthusiastic and say the following, inserting words from the (1), (2), (3), and (4) lists in the appropriate places:

"Hey, you should check out this __1__, __1__ group, The Infadels. They're kinda __2___ but __3__ and not __4__, y'know?"

1 - dancey, retro, 80s-ish, synth-rock, electric-rock, British, new, blog-endorsed

2 - gloomy, serotonin-challenged, "not all 'happy happy joy joy'"

3 - still fun, not gloomy gloomy, in a chirpy way

4 - She-Wants-Revenge-y

Then, in a couple months, say you loved them the first time you heard them, twenty years ago, and yawn.

(substitute "on an "80s music CD" if you are too young to make that line work)
