The Action were an English band of the 1960s, formed as The Boys in August 1963, in Kentish Town, North West London. They were part of the mod subculture, and played soul music-influenced pop music.
The band was formed as The Boys in August 1963, in Kentish Town, North West London. The original members were Reg King (lead vocals), Alan ‘Bam’ King (rhythm guitar, vocals), Mike “Ace” Evans (bass guitar, vocals) and Roger Powell (drums) as The Boys. After the stint with Barry, Pete Watson was recruited as lead guitarist, and in 1964 they changed their name to The Action.
Shortly after their formation, they signed to Parlophone with producer George Martin. “Land of a Thousand Dances” b/w “In My Lonely Room” was well received by critics, but sold poorly. None of the Action’s singles achieved success in the UK Singles Chart.
After disastrous experiences with the Rikki Farr management, Peter Watson left the band in 1966. They continued as quartet, but were dropped from Parlophone in 1967. In the late 1960s keyboardist Ian Whiteman and guitarist Martin Stone joined the band and the Action moved toward a mid-tempo psychedelic ballad style, and then into folk rock.
Reg King left the band in 1967, and Alan King took over as main lead vocalist. In 1969, when signing to John Curd’s Head Records, the band was renamed Mighty Baby.
