Disappointing Follow-up

by The Inactivists

Quirky, theremin - addled funk? Clarinet-driven spazz-lounge? Jazz-baiting excursions into the darkest underbelly of the 4H Club? It's all that and more, Poindexter. The Inactivists are proud members of D.A.R.C. (The Denver Art Rock Collective).
Genre: Pop: Quirky

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Inactivists existed long before anyone joined the band. It took the invention of the internet to assemble the socially inept (and musically competent) human beings necessary to create the Inactivists. In fact, several shows having already been booked under the Inactivists moniker required the newly minted quintet to play their first two shows with only one rehearsal behind them. It went about as well as could be expected.

So who are these "people" that now inhabit the Inactivist world? There's Victoria Lundy, whose theremin playing provokes two very different responses in the audience. True aficionados of the instrument proclaim Vic to be one of the best theremin players in Denver. Most everybody else just wonders what the hell that thing is. Saxophonist and clarinet player, Todd Burba, does not like romantic candlelit dinners and long walks on the beach at sunset. He is, however, willing to endure them for the right price. Matt Sumner plays bass. In fact, he plays the bass very well, which is a good thing, since it makes the band sound better. Drummer Chris Budin's drum set keeps getting smaller and smaller. This makes it highly portable. It also makes Chris seem very tall. Chris Budin is, in reality, 5'4". Scot Livingston plays what would be considered very unremarkable guitar -- but since he plays it on the electric ukulele, it seems that much more impressive. He also sings lead vocals, which makes him as valuable to the band as the hood ornament is to the operation of an automobile.

Asked to describe their music, the Inactivists fail miserably. "Angry Lounge Nerd Rock" is often their glib reply. Instead, imagine the bastard love-child of Primus and Frank Zappa. . They've recorded two albums, "Punching Each Other" and its "Disappointing Follow-Up" as well as a split X-Mas EP entitled "It's An "The Inactivists" X-Mas!!!" The planned follow-up to "Follow-up" is "Dreaded Concept Album". Be very afraid.
