Easy Action

Does anyone know if Easy Action is putting out another album. I just went to the Sweden Rock Festival link and Easy Action is playing. This is what the site said:

"Now here's classic glam metal for ya! High class and with both feet deeply anchored in the eighties dirt. Zinny Zan, Kee Marcello and Peo Thyrén have once again blown life into Easy Action. "We Go Rockin" was the band's biggest hit, which also showed when a high profile American band tried to steal it! Since all the fun in the eighties the boys haven't exactly been lazing, but have made themselves heard in acts like Europe, Red Fun, Zan Clan and Shotgun Messiah. Now it's glam time again and the grand opening is at Sweden Rock Festival!"

I have the 'That Makes One' album, is far from sleaze-glam. Is pink n' fluffy AOR.... Great stuff though.

:yuck:

 

 

:lol:

 

I dunno if they made any other albums, but - trust me - you would not like this album one bit, is drowned in keys.

 

I'd be pretty interested in another album, but would be surprised if Kee Marcello went back to the lipstick & womens clothing as he was last to be seen on his 'Demon Melon Divine' thing with a goatie & loads of tattoos playing tuneless modern rock....

They have 2 cds. The first one is sleaze-glam. I don't like it at all. The second one "That Makes One", like Tim said, is very good keyboard oriented AOR/hard rock. Verrry different from the first album. Probably because there was a big line-up change between the albums. I think Kee Marcello was the only one to play on both of the albums.

To me it sound more or less AOR/Westcoastish....kinda like Toto or Chicago.  Probably went a little too far off the map there.

 

 

 

Am still after an original copy of this if someone out there has one up for grabs.

They are 2 very different albums, the 1st in early Swedish glam (1984), and I beleive it was only released on LP the line-up was:

 

Zinny Zan (Bo Stagman): lead vocals

 

Kee Marcello (Kjell Lövbom): lead guitar, keyboards, harmonica, backing vocals

 

Chris Lynn (Christoffer Lind): guitar, backing vocals

 

Alex Tyrone (Peo Thyrén): bass, backing vocals

 

Freddy Van Gerber: drummer

 

Danny Wilde (Dan Segerstedt): Guitar **he was the original guitarist and after the album was 1st released and he left they re-issued the 1st album with Chris Lynn on it.

 

The 2nd album saw the departure of Zinny Zan ( i believe to Dream police) and Alex Tyrone. Tommy Nilsson joined as the lead singer. The 2nd is Aor/Hard rock oriented cd.

I thought it sounded more like Poppy-Eurovision AOR, kinda like RETURN "Attitudes"/DA VINCI "Back In Business"/ARENA SWEDEN "S/T" etc. Jez, be careful when looking for an original though as I know a load of bootlegs were floating around as a friend unwittingly bought one....

Wow, I didn't know that. I've only heard the 2nd disc (which I do not like at all) and I'd have to agree with the other chaps, calling it some lite pop AOR creation. Like an even poppier, lighter version of Sha-Boom.

    • I dig the new tune!  Honestly, might be my favorite yet from these guys. I like that this kind of gets away from the  Bon Jovi Country vibe they sometimes had on the debut.  For me, this has a fresh, big sound to it.   Will have the new one on my radar.

    • After releasing two albums with AOR/Melodic Rock band Streets, ”1st” (1983) and ”Crimes In Mind” (1985), lead singer and keyboardist Steve Walsh returned to Kansas, to revive the band along with original members Phil Ehart (drums) and Rich Williams (Guitar). Furthermore, the lineup was completed by the addition of bassist Billy Greer (from Streets) and young, promising, former Dixie Dregs guitar man Steve Morse, who also contributed with composing skills and backing vocals. Eventually, the group’s ”Power” album was released in November of 1986, rather much to the vintage Kansas and Prog Rock purists dismissal, as I recall it. The heavier sound/direction and absence of violinist Robby Steinhardt, songwriter/keyboardist/guitarist Kerry Livgren and bassist Dave Hope were all contributing factors to the disapproval, it seems. However, mentioned ”Power” should perhaps instead be judged on its own merits, as it is what it is. Put out in a time when commercial Melodic Hardrock was very much in fashion, with FM rock radio and MTV as ever the important ingredients of daily life. In the end, the album actually landed at a respectable No. 35 on the Billboard chart, while the single/ballad ”All I Wanted” eventually rose to an even more impressive No. 19.

    • They have a real knack for writing (and producing!) songs that could be featured in '80s coming of age films and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible. Really putting the retro in retrowave 
    • Gonna post this as just recently discovered them, and loving what they do. I know most here wont care due to not being their style or not singing in English, but as a Band Maid fan, this shit is right up my street. They are a South Korean band. Posting two songs. One original and one a cover (Maneskin, a band I dont really care about) which is kinda impressive seeing as the song is in Italian, a language they don't speak ha ha
