Aktion may be a '70s band, but from a 2019 perspective they are no less fresh and vital to the ears for that.
I've always looked to the past as much as to the present for my musical choices.From the days of playing my parents' hand-me-down Beatles and Rock n Roll records on my Dansette record player - the equivalent then of today's cheaper-end Crosleys or Steepletones, I like to keep touch with fundamentals.
When Thoreau shot off into the woods crying: "Simplicity, simplicity, simplicity!" He was looking to reinvigorate a too complex life and get back to meaningful essentials.That's what this album is doing, music-wise, for me.

This is genuine, authentic, ultra-groovey, fun funk rock.Made by humans with vitality, who you can tell really love it for all the good reasons; and THEY do it quite basically.
