The Action Is- Tornado

The tornado moved on.

There's nothing fancy about Austin, TX, garage-rockers The Action Is. They clearly dig Iggy & the Stooges and The New York Dolls. Unless a band holding these traditional rock'n'roll values happens to be young and beautiful, it can be hard to catch a break. But The Action Is have stumbled into a bit of luck. Their music is featured in A&E's new reality show Rollergirls, which centers on an Austin-based roller derby team. The Action Is' unpretentious, sleazy fun is a fine match for the show's dubious premise.
