San Francisco indie-rockers Actionslacks assembled singer/guitarist Tim Scanlin, bassist Mark Wijsen and drummer Martin Kelly. Formed in 1995, the trio recorded the entirety of their first demo in a breakneck 11-hour session, soon signing with the Minneapolis-based indie label Skene! to release their 1996 debut LP Too Bright, Just Right, Goodnight. For 1998's One Word, Actionslacks signed with Arena Rock, subsequently touring with labelmates Harvey Danger. The new millennium was a growing period for the band -- bassist Ross Murray and guitarist/vocalist Doug Modie joined Actionslacks and the long-awaited third album The Scene's Out of Sight was issued in early 2001.
