Numbskull Action is a three piece garage punk band from Woking, UK. Action & Reaction is their second LP, a follow up to their 2012 debut All The Action. Numbskull Action play a drunken, fuzzed out brand of garage rock. Songs about getting messed up, bad driving and more drinking. Reminds me a little bit of The Libertines in their more unhinged, punked up moments and also Black Ladies a weirdo, catchy punk rock band fronted (?) by Jaime Paul Lamb. These songs have an excess of drunken punk energy and they have the garage levels of distortion down pat, the only thing they are missing is some well placed gang backing vocals and some woah-oh-oh's. Highlights include Bad Advice (It's Not Nice); It's Alright (If You Wanna Fight); I Don't Know Your Name; A.F.O.T.G.S.; TV Commercial & I Smell Clutch.
