The Action (punk rock)

In April of 1976, brothers John and Paul Fenton formed a band in Ottawa, Ontario. After pulling in a drummer, the clueless trio started a straight ahead rock group. They decided to audition singers for the yet unnamed group and gave Paul's friend Ted Axe a try. They found a new bass player in Rick McDonough and became The Action. The Action caused a stir in early December 1980 when they played at a local high school. The principal filed a complaint with the Ottawa-Hull district American Federation of Musicians that the band's conduct on stage was unsuitable.  The Action disbanded in 1981.
