The Action Suits

Formed in 1995 in Seattle, USA.
Original member: Eric Reynolds, Andy Schmidt, and Al Columbia. Al leaves and Peter Bagge (author of world famous comic “Hate”) joins as drummer. They played various gigs in and around Seattle and came to be known “The King of Pussy Rock.” With the help of their friend, Steve Fisk as producer?they release 4 vinyl 7″ in 1996. They lasted through various line-up changes for a few years before ceasing to exist when Andy moved away. Now Andy’s back, and he, Eric and Pete have temporarily reformed to record enough new songs to fill out a full length CD. The CD, titled “The Action Suits,” will have the 7 previously released songs plus 5 newly recorded songs, with Fisk as producer.
Influenced by the Beatles, their sound is catchy and melodious bubble gum pop.
It is also interesting that all three of the band members are deeply associated with the alternative comic scene.
Other former band members: Al Columbia (guitar, singer, co-founder), Demian Johnston (guitar) and Chris Jacobs (drums).
