Fu Manchu The Action Is Go! 45RPM Colored Vinyl 2LP + 7"
The second release in Fu Manchu's 30th anniversary vinyl reissue series, The Action Is Go: Deluxe Edition, celebrates the band's fourth album and debut of guitarist Bob Balch and drummer Brant Bjork, which was originally released in October 1997.
Produced by White Zombie's J. Yuenger and recorded at the legendary Sound City Studios and also at Grandmaster Studios in Los Angeles, CA, The Action Is Go is considered a classic of the '90s and a pillar for the "stoner rock" movement.
Highlights include the lead single "Evil Eye," which was featured on the soundtrack for Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2, plus live staples like "Grendel, Snowman," "Hogwash" and "Saturn III." This double LP is cut at 45 RPM for maximum heaviness and the gatefold packaging includes never before seen photos of the band.
Also included is a bonus vinyl 7" of "Swami's Last Command" and an alternate version of "Module Overload" recorded during the album sessions, both of which were previously only available on the European pressing. Both the LP and 7" feature newly remastered audio for optimum fidelity.
