The Grim Reefer Seen these guys live a few times and they are really amazing musicians. Their ability to hop multiple genres in one song is impeccable. I can hear a lot of Mike Patton and John Zorn influences which I like a lot!

Formed in 2005 beneath the shadow of The Berkeley Inn in Denver, CO, Action Friend has achieved true 'road warrior' status through hundreds of live shows, three studio albums with acclaimed producer Toshi Kasai (Melvins, Tool, Mike Patton, Big Business), multiple U.S. tours, and have had five different bass players. In 2015 Action Friend relocated to Los Angeles, CA. and original members Jeremy McLean and Paul Alexander have initiated John Schuller (Master Musicians of Bukkake, Earth, Asva, The Youngs) and Mark G. Thornton (God Of Shamisen) into the fold. 'bon•ho•mie,' their third album and first for Chant Records, finds the band in top shape, digging deeper into their singular, genre-hopping brand of rock music.
