'Action!' is a wicked set of ten full throttled reverb infested dance stompers! Garage surf frat punk mayhem at its wildest on a cool 10-inch vinyl platter. The fabulous Krontjong Devils from the Dutch North coast return after their great 'En Garde' LP with ten killer recordings featuring eight smokin'revved up instros and two rockin'vocal tracks, including a classic from the Devils' idol Freddy "Action" Cannon! These devils always are where the action is! 250 copies only!!!
I’ve been a fan of the Oetsound! since I was knee high to a tulip. And for my guilders, the best purveyors of the stuff are the Krontjong Devils. Take their latest record, Action!, for example. It’s action-packed from lip to label with that typical Krontjong flair—with brash enthusiasm and a thousand gallons of reverb. From the title track through Shish Kebab you’ll barely be able to catch your breath (especially when you’re jerkin’, frugin’ and rompin’ to every number). This is a collection of tunes that hits all the right notes and proves that the hi-fi hits just keep coming from the lowlands.
