The Action is Go is the fourth studio album by California stoner rock group Fu Manchu. It features new drummer Brant Bjork (Kyuss) and new lead guitarist Bob Balch, replacing Eddie Glass and Ruben Romano, who left to form the band Nebula.

The So-Cal dudes of Fu Manchu have been doing this hard rock thing since the good ol’ year of 1990. This LP, titled The Action Is Go was released in 97’; it showcases a veteran bunch of hard rock songwriters just doing their thing. Not much else to say for this release other than how good it is and believe me, this is some good . Fu Manchu has a sound characterized by a macho looking dude with a mullet, aviator shades and some thick sideburns driving a blue Chevelle smoking 5 cigars at once while going 120 on the highway. This is a demonstration of masculinity. Maybe my favourite from Fu Manchu. Without a doubt their most psychedelic output. Tracks like "Burning Road", "Laserb'last" and the massively acid-drenched epic "Saturn III" move fucking mountains.

The Action is Go is the fourth studio album from California rock group Fu Manchu. It features new drummer Brant Bjork (Kyuss) and new lead guitarist Bob Balch, replacing Eddie Glass and Ruben Romano who left to form Nebula. Tracklist: "Evil Eye" - 0:00 "Urethane" - 3:31 "Action Is Go" - 7:07 "Burning Road" - 10:14 "Guardrail" - 16:01 "Anodizer" - 18:58 "Trackside Hoax" - 23:25 "Unknown World" - 28:19 "Laserbl'ast!" - 31:09 "Hogwash" - 34:56 "Grendel Snowman" - 38

Not that it's unique, yet even with half the band changed from the last time around, the twin-riff action that kicks off "Evil Eye," and The Action Is Go! as a whole, sounds like nobody else but Fu Manchu, somehow. Punk energy, classic rock drive, psychedelic crunch, and heavy-ass grind all at once - really, is anything more needed? From there the new lineup proceeds to kick ass and take names in its own way - music to shake one's very long hair to while cranking it up and driving around

Like every Fu Manchu outing, The Action Is Go heaves and grunts with monstrously heavy classic guitar riffs. There's absolutely nothing new about them-you've heard most of these riffs on any number of Black Sabbath and Blue Oyster Cult records. However, it's the little touches-such as guitarist/vocalist Scott Hill's plaintive, stoned wail and bassist Brad Davis's snaky, throbbing bass lines-that make Fu Manchu more than just pale imitators
