About Action Beat
Action Beat are an improv noise/no-wave band which is often made up of musicians who are available to play the gig on any particular date. They sound quite like early Sonic Youth, Glenn Branca, Rhys Chatham and the Boredoms. They normally have at least 4 guitarists, a bassist, a baritone and between 1 and 4 drummers and have also played with brass and string instruments in the line-up.
They have a die-hard gigging ethic, playing over 90 shows across Europe in 2009. Read more on Last.fm
