The Inactivists are purveyors of angry lounge rock, hailing from Denver, CO.
With an eclectic mix of instruments -- ukulele, theremin, and clarinet as
well as bass and drums -- coupled with berserk and clever lyrics about
fantastic chairs, laments about losing their clothes, and of course, lost
love, the Inactivists are an energetic, unpredictable live act and not like
anyone else you've heard.

Their new release, titled ³Disappointing Follow-up², is a sometimes
frenetic, sometimes somber but almost always funny commentary on love,
death, stalking, riding the bus, and, sado-masochism. Samples are available
at http://www.inactivists.com/sing.html

The Inactivists are the offspring of Denver¹s incestuous music scene. Chris
Budin < drums and percussion < also plays drums for the Reals, guitar and
percussion for Protosonic. Todd Burba - Clarinet and Saxophone, percussion <
also plays with the Sentimental Hitmen. Scot Livingston < guitars and
electric ukulele < was formerly lead guitarist "The Phlegmtones" as well as
lead singer-songwriter for the blues-punk band Red Eye Revival. Victoria
Lundy < theremin < used to be with the Carbon Dioxide Orchestra and
übergroover. Matt Sumner - bass < was with Rainville before the Inactivists.

³The combination of instruments and humorous off-kilter lyrics make the
Inactivists sound like Morphine and Primus playing a set of Frank Zappa
covers.² < JeffCo News

³They play it straight- if by straight you mean Beefheartian renditions sung
by Kermit the Frog. The instrumentation, while including your standard
guitar/bass/drums also features a plinking ukulele while a theremin weaves
in and out of the mix.² < Enfuse Magazine

"Nerd-punk" taken to the extreme with eccentric instruments, off-beat
arrangements, and comic relief.² < The Denver Post
