Improvisational noise merchants, ACTION BEAT, follow up their debut 'The Noise Band From Bletchley' with 'Beatings', that was recorded with at least 7 musicians, which is evident in the sheer verve and potency of the album. They have taken their perfected improvised noise formula, driven by magnetic interlocking guitar harmonies, pummelling drums and crashing cymbals and ramped it up a notch, or three. Their musical influences, such as The Ex and Sonic Youth, are still proudly on display, and for the first time ever, Action Beat utilizes fitting male vocals (provided by House Of John Player). This is the sound of a band maturing. Pressed on 180 grams vinyl. Comes in gatefold sleeve and including download.
