Stranded Records became interested and released the single "Honcho Bongo". It didn't sell well and when the second single, "Om jag vore kung", also failed the band split up. Skox and 2 meter formed Psyhedelic Mongo and Pelle Almgren started writing songs instead. Easy Action was reformed as a glam metal band in 1982 by Kee Marcello and Alex Tyrone (aka Peo Thyrén).
The two played together in the Swedish glam act Noice when they decided to start the ultimate glam rock band, mixing their influences of 1970s glam with a punk/metal attitude. They met the original singer Bosse Belsen, now named Zinny J. Zan, at the Stockholm rock club Ritz and recorded his vocals on the first demos the very same night. Later the Noice drummer Fredrik Von Gerber and the guitar player Danny Wilde joined the band.
In 1983 they got signed to the US major label Sire and became the first Swedish band ever to sign a worldwide record deal. After releasing two albums; Easy Action in 1983, and That Makes One in 1986, the band split up when their guitarist and band leader Kee Marcello quit the band to join Europe, and went on to worldwide success with the band, selling over 30 million albums. US hair metal superstars Poison used the chorus of Easy Action's 1983 single "We Go Rocking" in their hit single "I Want Action" which led to the members of Easy Action suing the American band and winning a financial settlement in the case. Easy Action reunited for a gig at the Sweden Rock Festival in 2006. This was followed by several shows in late 2007, including opening for Twisted Sister. In April 2008, the band went in the studio with producer Chris Laney to record a new studio album.
In 2011 bassist Micael Grimm died. http://www.easyaction.se 2) Easy Action is from Detroit, Michigan, formed by John Brannon (Negative Approach/Laughing Hyenas).
