The first recordings of Johnny Casino's Easy Action came about because the big man had had a win at the Turf Club at 18th and Market streets in Philadelphia , and when he woke up the next morning with a pocket full of money he thought the best thing to spend it on would be makin some music .
The band had been together for about three months while Johnny was learning the art of Tattooing from his great mate The Cosmic Commander, he knew a bass player who knew a drummer who knew a venue booker so they played a show or two and recorded this ep , as rough and ready [or not ready depending on which way you like it] as it could be.
You get their version of the GREAT Flamin Groovies classic 'Teenage Head' , Cosmo testifying on the Ray Charles song 'What I say' and a run thru of the Stooges 'Little doll' along with a song written by Johnny for Asteroid B612 but never recorded 'Take it from me' the charging instrumental 'Shuffin the deck' and the sorrowful JC penned 'your smiles gone away' Fun for most of the family !
