If live electronic music is boring in concert (dull people behind laptops and synths, no guitarists who jump around) why would The Sydney Morning Herald name the electronica unit Infusion not the Best Live Dance Act award but the all-around Best Live Act award? Austrailians have been hip to the live and on-record energy of the Melbourne-based Infusion since Frank Xavier, Manuel Sharrad, and Jamie Stevens formed the band in 1998. Through labels Thunk and Roadrunner, the Infusion released a string of successful 12"s that caught the attention of influential DJs like Paul Oakenfold and Pete Tong. The band slowly grew a cult following, but 2004 found their career really taking off. They landed a slot at the huge U.K. Glastonbury festival and had Muzik magazine declaring them "a force to be reckoned with." In August of that year they toured America as their "Girls Can Be Cruel" and "Do to You (In '82)" 12"s were climbing club play lists everywhere. ~ David JeffriesPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
