The Infidels

Infidels were a Canadian funk-rock band in the 1990s. The band formed in 1990 when Molly Johnson reunited with Norman Orenstein, her partner in the short-lived 1980s band Alta Moda. They added Washington Savage, Jeff Jones and Owen Tennyson to the lineup, and released a self-titled album in 1991 on IRS Records. The single "100 Watt Bulb" peaked at #25 in the RPM charts the week of November 23, 1991, peaked at #12 the week of February 22, 1992. "Without Love" and "Shaking" also garnered radio play in 1992 and both reached RPM's CanCon monitor charts, but neither song reached the magazine's main singles chart. Despite the chart success of "100 Watt Bulb" and "Celebrate", however, the album was only a modest seller, peaking at #74 in RPM's albums chart the week of February 29, 1992. Following the album's tour, the band took a break as Johnson established the Kumbaya Festival. They recorded a second album in 1995, but were faced with label difficulties. The label wanted them to change their name, due to the existence of another band of the same name from Youngstown, Ohio, but Johnson and Orenstein resisted since they were already too well-associated with that name in Canada. As well, the label was going through financial difficulties at the time. As a result, Johnson decided to dissolve the band, and the 1995 album has never been released.
