Action Beat Tour Dates

Action Beat (Southern Records) are an intense semi-improvised noise/no-wave punk ensemble from Bletchley, inspired by early Sonic Youth, The EX, Glenn Branca and other avant guitar ensembles. Based a core of five musicians, but often expanding to as many as fourteen for live shows, a normal gig will have at least three guitarists, a bassist and between one to four drummers, with some shows including saxophone, trumpet and violin. In the wrong hands, such overly-enthusiastic stage overpopulation can lead to muddy indifference - Action Beat, however, concentrate their excess into focused, yet ragged, rock grooves punctuated by bursts of screeching avant-punk noise and evil disco rhythms. Their blistering live shows are a riot of urgent punk energy and frequently descend into chaos (and sometimes semi-nakedness), so its not surprising that they've gained much recognition in the UK and Europe and shared stages with Do Make Say Think, Dälek, Oxes, ZU, Usaisamonster and Bilge Pump.

Action Beat tour dates listed on since Sep 2007.
