ACTION, THE: Complete Punk Recordings 1977-78: CD

A collection of assorted singles, demo, and live tracks of an obscure Canadian band apparently active during the years indicated in the title. Musically, they sound like the long lost link between the Dictators and early-‘70s Stones, which is definitely not a bad thing. On the whole, they had the tunes, the verve, and the nerve, so it’s a shame they didn’t manage to crank out more than this. Kudos to Joey and the Sudden Death crew for givin’ ‘em a second shot at infamy
