Time Magazine has just posted an article about them!

The video above, posted by a band of 20-something Pakistani musicians in the country's cultural capital Lahore, has become a viral hit in South Asia. "Aalu Anday" or "Potato and Eggs" starts innocently enough but soon launches into a tongue-in-cheek attack on the country's political establishment and its conservative, religious underpinnings. The group is named the "Beygairat" Brigade, meaning "without honor," a jab at the Ghairat brigade, a term invoked in the Pakistani media grouping together some of the country's most vocal nationalists and supporters of political Islam — the community very much at the receiving end of the musicians' Punjabi satire. The song has not only made waves in Pakistan, but across the border in India, where the plight of Pakistan's beleaguered liberals has won a lot of sympathy.
